Southeastern Conference media days began at the event’s longtime home in Alabama, with SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey kicking off the four-day event this morning with his annual address about the state of the league and college football.
The SEC event was moved back to the Birmingham suburb of Hoover after one year in Atlanta.
The spotlight will be on LSU coach Ed Orgeron, who will speak today, with Florida’s Dan Mullen and Missouri’s Barry Odom also taking the podium.
Alabama and Georgia remain the division favorites and Alabama’s Nick Saban is set to speak on Wednesday, a day after Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart.
All 14 teams will make the rounds, giving interviews and talking about the upcoming season, including star quarterbacks like Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and Georgia’s Jake Fromm.
