The SEC released the full list of attendees for its 2014 Football Media Days Wednesday afternoon, which can only mean one thing: It's officially almost almost-football season!

The four-day spectacle, which will take place this year from July 14-17 in its usual location, the Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover, Alabama, features press conferences from league commissioner Mike Slive, all 14 SEC head coaches and three players from each team.

Here is whom each program is bringing along:

Bleacher Report's Barrett Sallee hit on some of the notable player absences earlier in the day, listing the following as his top five:

  • QB Jacob Coker, Alabama
  • RB Mike Davis, South Carolina
  • QB Hutson Mason, Georgia
  • QB Brandon Harris, LSU
  • RB Kelvin Taylor, Florida

The quarterback omissions are disappointing but understandable. Coker, Mason and Harris are charged with replacing AJ McCarron, Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger, respectively, and no matter how prepared they are to face an SEC pass-rush, none of them is ready for the tsunami of reporters that waits in Hoover.

Seriously. Go ask Johnny Manziel.

Of the six quarterbacks who will not avoid the limelight of Media Days—Nick Marshall (Auburn), Jeff Driskel (Florida), Bo Wallace (Ole Miss), Dak Prescott (Mississippi State), Maty Mauk (Missouri) and Dylan Thompson (South Carolina)—only Mauk and Thompson have never been full-time starters. But they have started a few games apiece, including one against each other last season.

Also worth mentioning: Texas A&M has decided to bring its punter, Drew Kaser. I guess that's a fair reward after using him so infrequently last season, when the Aggies punted just 45 times.

Whose inclusion at Media Days are you guys most excited about? And which exclusion bums you out the most?
