The unofficial countdown to college football will return to Hoover, Ala., this summer after spending last year in Atlanta, Ga. For the annual Southeastern Conference Media Days, the Hyatt-Regency/Wynfrey Hotel has been the venue for the event since 2001.  

According to a release from SEC’s front office, the media days is scheduled for July 15-18 and the University of Alabama is scheduled to meet with the press on Wednesday, July 17.

Joining Nick Saban on that day will be Chad Morris of Arkansas, Joe Moorehead of Mississippi State and Will Muschamp of South Carolina.

SEC media days will be broadcasted on ESPN and the SEC Network.

Members of the working media have accurately predicted the winner of the conference seven times in this event since 1992, including three of the last five seasons. Saban and the Crimson Tide will draw a massive crowd as usual; however, his mindset is capturing the sixth national championship at Alabama and seventh overall for his career.
