Tennessee: Best Quotes and Key Takeaways from SEC Media Days
USA TODAY Sports

The annual circus of quotes and craziness known as SEC media days is over, and it came and went without much earth-shattering news from the Tennessee Volunteers.

But that doesn't mean the appearance in Hoover, Alabama, for coach Butch Jones and three of his playersA.J. Johnson, Curt Maggitt and Mack Crowderwas devoid of newsworthy nuggets and sound bites.
