Although summer workouts have been going on for the better part of two months, the fact that SEC Media Days kicked off Wednesday in Hoover, Ala. is a sure sign that the 2008 season is not very far away.
Georgia coach Mark Richt, along with senior wideout Mohamed Massaquoi and defensive tackle Jeff Owens make their appearance Thursday at the Wynfrey Hotel where they will meet with an estimated 1,000 sports writers and sportscasters from across the Southeastern Conference and nation.
The three-day event gets underway at 2:10 ET with Florida head coach Urban Meyer took the podium following an opening address by SEC commissioner Mike Slive.
No doubt Richt will field a wide range of question from the inquisitive throng.
Subjects certain to be broached include Georgia's status a national title contender, but also last year's game against Florida and this summer's list of off-the-field transgressions which brought the program some not-so-favorable reviews.
