Will Muschamp is the highest-profile coach on the hot seat this fall.

With league media days cranking up next week—starting with the SEC’s four-day gabpalooza in Hoover, Alabama—the chatter surrounding college football will soon reach a fever pitch.

Coaches and players will be paraded before hordes of news media to talk about their team, their 2014 season and what they’re expecting this fall.
