Big Day here – SEC Media Days

HOOVER, Ala. | The big day is here – well, the first of three big days.

SEC Media Days get going this afternoon, with four teams set to make an appearance. SEC commissioner Mike Slive will get things going at 12:30 p.m. when he addresses the media. Remember, MSU will be here on Wednesday, but in today’s Journal I came up with five questions for Dan Mullen – questions I believe he’ll be asked as he makes the rounds. We’ve also got five SEC questions, from Johnny Manziel‘s off-field behavior to the four new coaches who’ll be here this week.

Also, if you missed my player videos from Monday, be sure to check the previous two blog entries. Now, let’s take a brief glance at each of the teams appearing today, with their scheduled appearance time in the main media room.
