2011 SEC Media Days TV Schedule, Day 3: Nick Saban Precedes Les Miles Main Event

After two long days in Birmingham, it's time. Les Miles will field questions at SEC Media Days. However, only a fool would discount the exciting comments to be made by Houston Nutt, while there's really nothing like a stern address from Nick Saban to jolt even the most-hungover blogger to life first thing in the morning.

And that's overlooking the first appearance by James Franklin, who may or may not be one-eighth as entertaining as his predecessor Robbie Caldwell was last year. Though he definitely has more personality than Vanderbilt coaches are known for.

If you're just now tuning in to SEC Media Days, you've selected the right day. Putting Vandy right before lunch makes for a tempting early break, but this is the most talent-packed lineup of the week by far. Let us cruise to victory, friends.
