Welcome to SEC media days

HOOVER, Ala. -- Greetings from SEC media days here in Hoover, Ala.

In a couple of hours, the circus will truly begin inside the Wynfrey Hotel, as we get one step closer to the 2013 SEC season. SEC media days kicks off at 1:30 p.m. ET with opening statements from conference commissioner Mike Slive. Representatives from Florida, Missouri, Ole Miss and South Carolina will then follow Slive, with Florida and Mizzou kicking things off from 1-3:40 p.m. ET.

Ole Miss and South Carolina will follow, wrapping things up around 6:20 p.m. ET.

The headliners for Tuesday's festivities clearly hail from South Carolina with Steve Spurrier and Jadeveon Clowney going. Spurrier likely will entertain the heavy media contingent with some classic Spurrier lines that will fill up headlines and eat at opponents, while Clowney will face tons of questions about his chances at taking home the Heisman Trophy this fall.

Florida is trying to build off last year's 11-win season, and expect Will Muschamp and Jeff Driskel to field plenty of questions about the offense turning things around.

James Franklin and Gary Pinkel will have to address Missouri's chances of improving on offense, while Hugh Freeze tackles generating even more success at Ole Miss in Year 2.
