Day one will be boring.  Day two will be awesome.  Day three could  go either way.  Day four will show that 90% of Bama fans are jobless and have nothing better to do other than follow Saban around.

before things get kicked off let's look back at some of the better quotes over the years


T.J. Moe stole the show. When asked to compare the SEC and the Big XII, Mizzou’s former conference, Moe said, “They say girls are prettier here, air’s fresher and toilet paper is thicker.”



Spurrier took a shot at Alabama who had won the national championship without winning the SEC championship saying, “It’s easier to win the National Championship than the SEC, ask Nick Saban.”


When asked about the Gamecock’s schedule last year Spurrier quipped, “If I made the schedule, Georgia would be playing LSU and we’d be playing Ole Miss.” And Spurrier, who’s routinely asked if he’s going to retire, said every time he’s asked that, “I feel like asking you guys how much longer you’re gonna write!”


Caldwell responded, according to AL.com, “When I took a pay cut to go to Furman as a full-time assistant, my daddy said, ‘You’re an idiot.’ I’ve continued to live up to his word, I’m sure.”


Then South Carolina head coach Lou Holtz was asked by a writer to answer a question in 15-20 seconds and then proceeded to ask about a two minute question.
Without missing a beat, Holtz replied, “If you can’t ask the question in 20 seconds; why should I answer it in 20 seconds?” After the room stopped laughing, Holtz answered the reporter’s question, but not quite in 20 seconds.

I hope someone asks Spurrier why 1/3 of USC's 2014 class didn't qualify yet.

we all knew it was coming....Mike Slive once again fired shots at the NCAA. Reiterated that the power conferences would propose changes to better serve student athletes, and that if needed the power conferences would come up with a way on their own.

Can't remember exactly how he put it. Will update once transcript or quote is available.

http://espn.go.com/c...mike-slive-says


highlights:


"We have supported and will continue to support the NCAA as the appropriate governing organization for intercollegiate athletics, but at the same time, however, we will continue to push for changes we believe are in the best interest of our student-athletes," he said.


"The NCAA has not been successful in meeting the full cost of attendance of our student-athletes," he said. "… Conferences and their member institutions must be allowed to meet the needs of their student-athletes. In recent conversations with my commissioner colleagues, there appears to be a willingness to support a meaningful solution to this important change."
Slive openly questioned the NCAA Board of Directors, saying there are "important questions that need to be answered" about its structure.
"For example, what changes need to be made to the NCAA structure to provide significant roles for the stakeholders, the presidents, chancellors, athletic directors, institutional administrators, conference administrators, and coaches?" he asked. "What is the proper role, function and composition and size of the NCAA Board of Directors? Do we need all of the services provided by the NCAA's national office, its many committees and task forces, or are some of these services better provided elsewhere?
"And how do we streamline the NCAA committee and legislative processes to provide leaders and visionaries who will ensure the NCAA's future?"






not available at link, but he also said they plan to present a proposal of changes to the NCAA soon(I think mid August), and continued that "we should know something soon."
