South Carolina Gamecocks SEC Media Day Schedule


The Southeastern Conference Media Days are finally upon us, and that usually means football is right around the corner. Coaches and selected players will be available to talk about the spring, their summer workouts and what they look forward to the most about the upcoming season. It’s always a fun-filled adventure with some lows but mostly highs as there will be an overwhelming 1,200 media members there to capture it all.

There will be many hot topics this year but you can be assured that all eyes will be on Steve Spurrier and his South Carolina Gamecocks as they look to bounce back after an atrocious season finishing 7-6. Many will wonder what the changes will be, how the players feel and of course, how many famous “Spurrier-isms” they will get to witness. Either way it’s going to be a good time, and the excitement is building, and it’s best not to miss any of the action. Here is the information and times for when the Gamecocks take over.
