SEC Media Days, an event of great pomp and very little circumstance, begins today!

And, yet, it will still be painstakingly followed by media and fans alike, because in SEC country we'll entertain ourselves with anything to get us through the desert that is the college football offseason.
We'll naturally have information on Ole Miss at SEC Media Days when it becomes available, but we won't be there ourselves.

- Here's Bo Wallace at the Manning Passing Academy talking about playing against LSU and the Rebel signing of Garrald McDowell.
- The SEC on SBN ranked the league's offensive lines. Here's what we came up with.
