Media days are about coaches providing tidbits, learning new information about the upcoming season and waiting for somebody to make a baffling comment. But the players shouldn't be excluded from the event. This is a chance to get to know certain players better and tap into their brain as well.
The SEC has announced each player who will participate in this madhouse from July 16-18. Johnny Manziel, AJ McCarron and Jadeveon Clowney, among other popular players, will be in attendance. However, there are a few big names that didn't make the list, which should have.
Of the 42 attendees, 32 are seniors. It's nice to reward the upperclassmen, but many young guys have stepped up and deserve the privilege of participating. That would include a pair of 1,000-yard rushers and one of the best wide receivers in college football.
