    SEC MEDIA DAYS CENTRAL

    Hoover, Ala. -- Day two is here. After a "quick" session yesterday, Wednesday is a full-day affair. Six different SEC teams will appear before the media contingent, a whirlwind that started at 8 am and will end long after the sun has set in Hoover.

    In order to properly recap all the action here at the Wynfrey, we once again turn to our trusty photoblog. Throughout the day, I'll keep adding pictures of players, coaches and random events that happen here at SEC Media Days. I'll add a time stamp so you can get an idea of how the event is progressing.

    Dan Mullen Starts It Off (8:30 am CT)

    Our first live stream was of Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen, who "kicked" off Wednesday's action. Mullen joked that he hoped being first at SEC Media Days could correspond to his Bulldogs being first in the Western Division this year.



    Tyler On TV (9:15 am CT)

    I was fortunate enough to "shadow" MSU quarterback Tyler Russell as he made his rounds here at the Wynfrey. He made a stop in one of the TV rooms early in the rotation. Here's a look at the camera angle from where they are shooting.



    Helmet Anyone? (9:40 am CT)

    Throughout the grounds of SEC Media Days, you'll see plenty of promotional tables and exhibitions from bowl games and television networks. The most interesting showcase today was the "old leather helmet", which goes to the winner of the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game. You can see the helmet trophy on display below.



    Next Up On The Mic (10:45 am)

    The main press room is what you see on ESPNU live. Here's a glimpse at what each coach sees as they look out into the crowd here in the area. Lights, camera and action as they say here at the Wynfrey.



    Hey, That's Me (12:45 pm)


    As I mentioned yesterday, the player and coaches have special posters they travel with during their rotation. It is used as a way to track them along their journey, letting media and staff know where they are. Arkansas' Knile Davis posed for a picture with his poster, which he will take home with him once his day is over.



    That's Logistics (2:55 pm)

    UPS is all about logistics. In a special promo video they were shooting here at Media Days, several SEC staff members were interviewed about the topic. In this picture, former Ole Miss standout and current SEC staffer Tre Stallings gives his explanation.



    A Tiger Son Closeup (12:45 pm)

    LSU's Eric Reid took his turn in front of the lights, shooting a remote with a news station here at the event. Reid learned the TV talent of looking into the camera despite being interview by someone off of the camera.



    Les In The Spotlight (3:25 pm)

    When Les Miles hit the main podium, he talked to a packed house of reporters and onlookers. While he spoke, this image played on the projector screen to his right in the main room.



    We All Agree (4:10 pm)

    Among the promotional tabs here at the Wynfrey, there is a large poster prominently displayed on the north end. The print is a advertisement for the "SEC on ESPN" apparel line, which touts the league's passion. I think the words listed below are something we all can agree with.
