Jumbo Package/SEC Media Days Open Thread | 07.17.13

I will never not use this picture. - Wesley Hitt

Quick Jumbo Package to hit on the high notes of yesterday's media days (Quotes/Videos can be found in yesterday's thread HERE):

Gary Pinkel started off his speech by talking about baseball. BASEBALL, people. Somebody teach this man how to ESS EE SEE.

Spurrier worked in a quality jab about Notre Dame:

Another thing that came up, we were sitting there talking about the new four-team playoff. Mr. Hancock, who is on the committee, to try to tell us how it's all going to work out. The committee is going to name the four teams, this, that and the other. He said they were sitting with the commissioners of our BCS conferences and the athletic director of Notre Dame. Somebody said, why was he there? He's equal with all the commissioners. We just started trying to figure out why the athletic director of Notre Dame is equal to all the conference commissioners. Nobody had a good answer except that's the way it's always been done.

And Muschamp had the quote of the day:

Moving on, Media Days continues with crowded slate today, with Texas A&M, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Auburn, and Arkansas all taking their turns today. With so many teams, coverage kicks off to a bit of an early start, with the first speaker taking the podium at 8:10 CT.

You should be able to stream the coverage HERE. If you aren't able to stream, we will also be updating this page with links to video/quotes throughout the day. Also, SBN is live blogging from the event HERE.
