SEC MEDIA DAYS: SABAN ARRIVES SANS CHARIOT OF FLAMES

New, 53 comments

9:07 a.m. We're at SEC Media days, covering the scene and occasionally relaying actual information. The Saban invasion proved to be a bit underwhelming: no mobs of crazed men with goatees and baseball caps tearing at his flesh for souvenirs, no women attempting to kidnap him...just a dude, though still a dude with two bodyguards at Media Day.

Rogers Redding, the SEC officiating capo, is talking right now. Fascinating, actually. His quote on the new 40 second clock? “We don’t know what impact it will have.” That's what a sensible person would say, of course. Rogers Redding, you just failed in your application for a blogging license.

10:15 a.m. Jeff Owens of UGA is talking. He is the size of a grizzly bear walking on its hind legs, and has the same gait.

10:48 a.m. In the radio/internet room, FWIW, so we have no idea what commenter AUGrad means when he says "Fulmer just got served." On plates with a light bearnaise and broccolini? Astounded at the polish of representative players: a decade ago you were guaranteed a few grunt and nodders in the group, but all of these guys are gifted, smooth PR cases, particularly Antoine Caldwell of Alabama.

11:08 a.m. Good Christ, it's cold enough to slow time down in here. To the commenter who addressed us as "fatty" this morning in the Curious Index: you may be shocked to learn we're down a few pounds from our peak weight of last season. How did we stay motivated, you ask? The tragic death of our twin brother Hrothgar from cardiac disease was more than enough, dear reader.

We still have the choice motorcycles, though.

11:28 a.m. Fulmer did get suuuuurrrrrrrrved! Though according to scuttlebutt here, he's denying the servage.
