Steve Spurrier and Brett Bielema have left the building, and the SEC Media Days media is replacing their routines. Where’s the bar?

With Steve Spurrier long gone, and his heir to the SEC Quip Throne, Brett Bielema, shipped off,  SEC Media Days refuse to sparkle. With the SEC Network opening with, “Will we find out which coaches cut their own grass,” maybe it’s time to just forget the whole thing.

(SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey assured all that the answer was zero. I guess then it could be a serious question.)

The SEC Network quickly pivoted to which coach will use the least number of words to make his remarks. The results are still being tabulated.

The SEC Network can’t be faulted. It’s the Big Dawg, and even light-hearted moments set the tone.

How Big a Dawg is the SEC Network? Big enough for Commissioner Sankey to give a shout out to Phyllis and Tammy.

Phyllis from Mulga responded on the Paul Finebaum Show, “That was very nice and respectful of him to say that.”

Indeed, it was, and if we got nothing from SEC Media Days but that the Commissioner “gets it”, that’s reassuring.

Other media outlets and members were less reassuring, with Adam Sparks of the Nashville Tennessean asking, who will say “aight” the most, Nick Saban or Jeremy Pruitt.

Aight then. Maybe we don’t all get it.

Let’s send Phyllis to Media Days next year.
