The chairs have been tucked away. The microphones and cameras have been stored in their mobile hiding places—at least for now—as they wait for what comes next, just like us.
College football’s media-day circuit has come and gone. The most exciting and interesting personalities in the sport flocked to their conference’s destinations, which included stops in Hoover, Dallas, Los Angeles, Greensboro and Chicago, among other places.
They talked. They joked. They jabbed. Some of them (cough, cough...Mike Leach...cough, cough) even excelled in the prop department.
Of course, included in these various stops were unique presences primed for the occasion. Some of these coaches have established themselves as being a character in the sport they teach; others are simply getting started.
Who entertained the masses this year at media days? Let’s have a look.
