Here are his best SEC Media Day Quotes ON LAREMY TUNSIL "There's very little to report. We obviously will cooperate fully with, whether it's the NCAA process or the law enforcement process, we will cooperate fully with that.

Mark Richt, the Georgia coach, spoke at SEC Media Days. While we'd love to try and translate something deep and meaningful into what he said, we're just going to take his quotes out and let you decipher them. But Richt's a pretty blunt person....so... ON CRITICISM AND LEARNING FROM BOBBY BOWDEN AT FLORIDA STATE (SARCASTICALLY) "I didn't know I got criticism" "I think the big thing -- I know when I first started coaching 32 years ago, whenever it was, with Coach Bowden and being in what we call hideaway and him talking about notes. A few things he talked about in the very beginning of those Read more [...]
Les Miles was awesome when he took the podium at SEC Media Days. Here are some of the best bits. ON .....?  "It appears to me that some of the media have not shaved and have left their car running in the back parking lot, kind of ready to get off to fishing or wherever they're supposed to be off to. Scooter has way too much sun to be inside. I can tell you that, I did not bring tennis shoes. That is a product of a sports information director who knows that I have an attachment to those shoes. I'm wearing regular shoes and regular socks." ON QUARTERBACKS "I think Brandon Harris has Read more [...]
Mark Stoops, the Kentucky head coach, spoke at SEC Media Days. Here are some of the best quotes. ON THE EARLY YEARS "Really glad the first two years trying to build this program didn't kill me."

Bret Bielema: Scars are a beautiful thing

Here's the best bits from Bret Bielema's press conference at SEC Media Days. ON CLOSE LOSSES "We played Alabama and Mississippi State, both heart breakers at the end. Mississippi State was obviously ranked number one at the time, and we let it get away from us. All the credit in the world to Dan, his staff, and his players to make that happen. I am a big believer in life in this fact. Scars are a very beautiful thing. I have scars on my knee from an ACL surgery. I have scar on my ankle from ankle surgery. I have a scar on my left hand from hand surgery. My mom has scars from 24 years of Read more [...]

Pinkel: Missouri fans still want Border War

Gary Pinkel has said that fans still want the annual game against Kansas, which was stopped after the Tigers moved to the SEC. The so-called 'Border War' might not be the fiercest in the country to college football neutrals, but to both fanbases, the game at Arrowhead highlighted the season. And the rivalry's very close - Missouri leads the rivalry 57-54-9 (or 56-55-9, depending on who you talk to!). The Tigers have won five out of the last six. "I don't think there's any question the fans want it back. It's one of the longest rivalries in college football," he said. "As you well know, when Read more [...]

Saban blames NFL for Sugar Bowl defeat

Nick Saban, the Alabama head coach, isn't blaming players for their lack of preparedness going into the 2014 College Football Play-Off semi-final loss to Ohio State. He's not blaming himself. Or his coaching staff. Nope. He's blaming the NFL. "I just felt like, in our experience last year, our team chemistry from the SEC Championship game to the playoff game was affected by something," he said. "I think that to have a December 15th deadline from when a junior can submit for a draft grade and then you get that assessment back sometime right before or right after Christmas, and then you have Read more [...]
