Station after station
with their respective hosts talkin' football. It's all happening at the Winfrey
Hotel in Hoover, the site of the 2013 SEC Media Days.
Matt Wyatt used to
quarterback the Mississippi State Bulldogs in the late '90s. Today, Wyatt sees
the game from a difference perspective. He's behind the mic with 'Supertalk'
radio from Mississippi.
"Our fans expect us
to be here,' said Wyatt.
Chris Vernon is with
92.9 FM out of Memphis.
"This is really the
first time we really start talking about coaches, players and the games coming
up," said Vernon.
It is here where Wyatt
and Vernon offer insights, predictions and anything football related. One of
the biggest topics being tossed around this week is that quarterback from Texas
A&M; Johnny Manziel's troubles off the field.
"Here you have a
Heisman winner and many people are wondering what's going on especially when
you consider what happened over the weekend when he left the Manning camp
early," said Vernon.
Because the SEC has won
the last 7 national football titles there are more radio stations covering
the event than before. In fact, Winfrey Hotel personnel had to make room beyond
the main foyer for additional stations.
"It gets bigger
every year," said Vernon.
It's only day one of the
SEC Media Days, one day before the rowdy fans arrive. That means more good
material to talk about on Radio Row.
