    I haven’t watched the first thing on SEC TV since baseball season was over, and I might have caught 2 or 3 pieces of a baseball game. I suppose folks watch this stuff…

      I am right there with you PTC. I did watch a ton of baseball on the SECN though. And I can not stand nor tolerate Finebaum. Not sure which is worse, Finebaum himself or the dumbass callers.

    Given the amount of money the SEC is distributing from the SEC network, I figure the three representatives from each school will be obligated to take their turn in front of the camera.

    Beyond that, Gawd knows what they are going to talk about, unless it’s just taking calls from the idiot fringe and panning the lobby for sidewalk Alabama and Auburn groupies.

    I miss the “good ol’ days” when SEC Media Days was truly a circus.

    Unreal. Just unreal. Just to give you an idea how insane the SEC is compared to other conferences and the rest of the country, several years ago I stayed at The Homestead resort in the mountains of Virginia as a little quick family getaway. Upon check-in, I found out that the ACC media days was taking place there around the same time, which totally took me by surprise, and I expected all sorts of commotion that would take away from our relaxation.

    Well, aside from a few media types scurrying around a bit, and running into a few HC’s, we really had no clue that anything out of the ordinary was taking place. It remained quite sleepy and relaxing throughout, with no hoopla or fan fare whatsoever (which of course was great for us).

    With that said, I can only imagine what that place would have turned into if the SEC decided to hold their media days there. Oh, FWIW, if you ever have a chance, I’d highly recommend a visit to The Homestead and/or the nearby Greenbriar resort, both of which are top notch.

      Have stayed at both and years ago, pre-casino, I felt there wasn’t another resort in the class of The Greenbriar in the US. It may still have some special charm but it is hard to imagine it maintaining what made it so special. Fortunately, all but one of my visits was on the company dime, after seeing what it actually cost, I never took the family back with me picking up the tab. Might be more reasonable now with the casino looking for easy marks ti spend a few nights.

        It’s actually gotten much better in recent years with the millions spent in improvements/renovations. The place is utterly insane now but often quite expensive ($300+ nightly in peak months). For WV/VA residents they often have $79 specials during the winter months, which is nice. For a period, the place was in such disrepair that there was rampant talk of its closing. Oh, the infamous cold war bunker isn’t worth the cost; and this coming from a history/war buff.

        The Homestead isn’t quite as nice as The Greenbriar these days, but the overall surrounding beauty is better IMO. Love that area of Virginia and its one of our select getaway spots from central VA.

    For less than nine bucks a month, you can get streaming Netflix and watch every episode of Friday Night Lights twice a year, then follow it up with West Wing.

    You never hear a word from Phyllis or Paul.

    And you know more about football, too.

    I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but I’m really glad I will be in Meatchicken next week on bidness and won’t have to be bombarded by this stuff.

    I am looking forward to golf on a 52 degree morning though…
