SEC Media Days Considering New Locations


The annual SEC Media Days serve as the unofficial starting gun to the college football season.

Every year, coaches, players and media members descend to Birmingham, Alabama to talk expectations, hopes and dreams for the upcoming season. The event gets bigger and bigger every year, which means it could be on the move or the first time.

In the past, you could always count on the Hyatt Regency Wynfrey Hotel being the hub for all things SEC during the event.

But according to the Baton Rogue Advocate, SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey is mulling relocation for future dates. The event would change from city to city, making it an annual event for whoever is hosting.

As it stands, there is no agreement with the Wynfrey Hotel to host to the event in 2018. Sankey says that this is typical, as the agreement is made on a year-to-year basis. As it stands, Atlanta, Dallas, and Nashville would be the likeliest destinations if they were to decide to move the event elsewhere.

Of those three, Atlanta stands out as the most logical landing spot.

Talk of moving SEC Media Days have been rumored for years. However, it appears that the conference is taking them far more seriously than they have in the past.
