Birmingham, AL--It certainly is a strong indication college football is not that far off. Wednesday in Birmingham, the beginning of the SEC Football Media Days, where the coach of the conference teams, each with a few players in tow, meet up with the regional and national press to talk about the season ahead.
4 teams a day over the next three days, and among the coaches in front of the mikes on day one, the Gators rookie head coach!
Florida Head Coach
"Really pleased with the progress of our football team. Being hired in December, having the opportunity, Urban allowed me to come to bowl practice and watch our football team work and practice, very appreciative of him and the insight he's given to me in being the head coach at the University of Florida. My email is full of suggestions from the Gator Nation, I've chose to listen to Urban a little bit more than anybody else. But he's really been good in this transition, I appreciate him, he's been first class."
Tonight at ten we'll hear from Florida qb John Brantley, Gator fans hoping he's finally ready to live up to the hype surrounding him coming out of high school. Gene Chizik and a few of his Auburn players on the schedule Thursday, Saban and the Tide talk Friday.
