    Yep, it's football season. This year SEC Media Days is seven weeks before the first games (depending on when your team plays, etc.), but it's football season.

    Too early? I don't think anyone outside of those broadcasting it would argue. Also too hot as it's going to be 100 degrees in Birmingham all week.

    Anyway, here's the schedule:

    Monday, July 13
    12:30 p.m. - 3:20 p.m.
    Commissioner Greg Sankey
    Auburn (Coach Gus Malzahn/Jeremy Johnson/Jonathan Jones/Kris Frost)

    3:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
    Florida (Coach Jim McElwain/Jonathan Bullard/Brandon Powell/Vernon Hargreaves III)
    Vanderbilt (Coach Derek Mason/Ralph Webb/Nigel Bowden/Spencer Pulley)

    Tuesday, July 14
    9:30 a.m. - 10 a.m.
    Steve Shaw, SEC Coordinator of Football Officials

    10 a.m. - 1:20 p.m.
    South Carolina (Coach Steve Spurrier/Elliott Fry/Pharoh Cooper/Skai Moore)
    Texas A&M (Coach Kevin Sumlin/Mike Matthews/Germain Ifedi/Julien Obioha)

    2 p.m. - 5 p.m.
    Mississippi State (Coach Dan Mullen/Dak Prescott/ Taveze Calhoun/Ryan Brown)
    Tennessee (Coach Butch Jones/Joshua Dobbs/Curt Maggitt/Cameron Sutton)

    2 p.m. - 5 p.m.
    Missouri (Coach Gary Pinkel/Kenya Dennis/Maty Mauk/Evan Boehm)
    Arkansas (Coach Bret Bielema/Jonathan Williams/Brandon Allen/Keon Hatcher)

    Boy, they have really stretched that out into an event. Four days? Quality television for the SEC Network I guess.

    The difference between mid-July and mid-August in Birmingham is like comparing surface temperatures of Mercury and Venus. It's hot no matter when you do it. And it's not like they're holding this thing in a parking lot.

    As for being early? Probably. Considering the deadline for our football preview issue is Aug. 1, however, I'm not complaining too much. It'll help a lot of people get material for those sorts of stories.

    What are the SEC coaches' thoughts on global warming? Good time to find out.

    What's the point in all this? We all know Alabama is going to win the SEC.

    Not before Georgia has the chance to get everyone's hopes up but ultimately shit the bed against an inferior team and end up in the Weedeater Bowl.

    Let the process happen.

    And a pretty nice deal for the host hotel.

    Mississippi State's Dan Mullen totally dodges the Confederate flag issue.

    From the Clarion-Ledger:

    “That's a lot for people in Jackson and for the people in Mississippi. I know -- I don't see it very often. We don't have it on our campus up. I do know we're the most diverse campus in the Southeastern Conference. I know the university embraces that diversity as a whole. I certainly embrace that diversity. We're so diverse, they have a Yankee as the head football coach in the Southeastern Conference.

    “I think it's something that on a national level is getting an awful lot of attention right now, that people are really looking into how we can make things better in the state of Mississippi. And I hope as a university we're out on the forefront trying to help make things better with the type of school that we have and the diversity we have in our school.”
