College football’s most dominant conference in the BCS era also hosts the sport’s most anticipated set of media days, and this year’s gathering of those 14 programs in Hoover is no different.


If you don’t think the annual question and answer sit-down is must-see TV, just look at this tweet from Yahoo! Sports’ Pat Forde:

From top to bottom, the SEC is expected to harbor a strong set of football programs once again.

Alabama’s win over Notre Dame in last year’s BCS title game gave the SEC its seventh straight championship win. If another champion was to emerge from the conference this year, the SEC could be the last conference to win a national title before we move into the playoff era.

The Crimson Tide have won three of the last four BCS title games and will once again be the favorite to bring home the trophy this year, but programs like Georgia, LSU, Texas A&M, South Carolina and Florida will give the Tide (and each other) everything they’ve got during a grueling conference schedule.

On Tuesday, the SEC’s media days will begin. Starting with conference commissioner Mike Slive and ending with an Alabama/Vanderbilt panel on Thursday, media members everywhere will test coaches and star players with questions about the upcoming season.

But it’s the answers we’re all interested in.
