HOOVER – It took nearly 3,000 words and more than 15 minutes but Ole Miss head football coach Hugh Freeze did what he could to get his point across.

Just two days removed from more controversy surrounding a program already strife with trouble due to a five-year-old NCAA investigation, Freeze all but proclaimed that Ole Miss football was in good hands.

His opening statement at SEC Media Days on Thursday was the longest of any of the 14 coaches but it had more purpose than any other.

HOOVER – Here’s a fact known to anyone who has paid even moderate attention to college football.

The Vanderbilt football program has not won an SEC championship in its history. For those counting at home that’s 84 years.

It hasn’t come close. The last time Vandy won anything in the sport was prior to the conference’s existence when the Southern Conference was home to many of the current members of the SEC.  The league ended in 1932.

Why bring up these facts in 2017?

HOOVER – Butch Jones made his fifth appearance at the annual SEC Media Days on Monday.

Just like the previous four, he kept it positive. 

If only his fans were as convinced that his team is on the right track.

For most, a 9-4 finish in the SEC would be a solid performance, considering the injuries the Volunteers suffered in 2016.

But the yells from Rocky Top weren't those of glee but more like anger and disgruntlement.

The Alabama football coach was certain he would address questions about his starting quarterback, depth in the backfield and replacing some talented defensive linemen.

Instead, he was asked for his thoughts on gun control, domestic violence and early entry into the NFL draft. So much for football.
