    Some lucky fans get to hang out where those privileged darn journalists work.

    Because there's no fanbois at SEC Media Days ... ?
    The MAC is just making the fans easier to identify.

    If they get more than three wanting to represent Eastern Michigan, you'll know at least one of them is trolling.

    And you're right on the money.

    Having covered MAC media day about 117 times, this might be the worst prize in the history of contests.

    There's barely any media at MAC media day. I remember talking to a bunch of players (this was back in 2000) and they were complaining about having to come there to answer like two questions. One guy was like, "At least you're a quarterback. I'm the punter!"

    In my days as a Sun Belt SID, I often wondered why we had media days. Cost a bunch for travel, hotel and meals for players, coaches, admins and SIDs in New Orleans, though the Sun Belt SID staff could throw a pretty good party.

    As a reporter, I liked them because I could get a lot of interviews done and in the can and have material for down the road. I always preferred to do the in-depth stuff face-to-face rather than over the phone.

    But in these days of cutbacks, both at media outlets and schools themselves, the costs seem to be prohibitive.
