HOOVER, Ala. -- It's been a while since the first day of SEC media days was this anticipated.
The two teams that have dominated the league the last two seasons are on tap today -- Alabama and Florida -- and both have agent allegations swirling around their programs.
Alabama coach Nick Saban has already gone off on unscrupulous agents and will no doubt have a few more things to say today as the Crimson Tide investigates whether defensive end Marcell Dareus attended an agent's party in Miami with several other players from around the country.
Florida coach Urban Meyer will certainly be peppered with questions about the Maurkice Pouncey allegations, that he took $100,000 from an agent last year and then played in the Sugar Bowl. Adding to the drama, Pouncey's twin brother, senior center Mike Pouncey, is one of the players the Gators are scheduled to bring to the media days.
Here's a look at today's lineup. We'll have updates throughout the day:
From 2 p.m. to 4:50 p.m. ET: Alabama and Mississippi State.
The Mississippi State players attending are quarterback Chris Relf, offensive lineman Quentin Saulsberry and safety Charles Mitchell.
From 4:20 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET: Florida and Kentucky
The Florida players attending are center Mike Pouncey, defensive end Justin Trattou and safety Ahmad Black.
