HOOVER, AL - Every year SEC football fans flock to the lobby of the Hyatt Regency waiting to catch a glimpse and maybe even a autograph from their favorite players and coaches.

“I got Coach Malzahn, I got Reese Dismukes, I got C.J. Uzomah, and I got Gabe Wright,” Auburn fan Nick Borden of Decatur said of the signatures he got on the cover of his magazine.

“You just have to know the system," Vanderbilt fan Brian Hurst said.  "The Sharpie placement is key. If you don’t have one, your snag one from the crowd.”

“Muschamp and Jeff Driskel," Florida fan John Olive said who he wants to see. "Last year they snuck out the back door so I didn’t get to see them.”

Auburn fan Ann Rutledge of Jasper didn’t necessarily come for media day.

“Yeah, we came to eat breakfast. But decided to hang around.”

And she was glad she did.

“I shook [Gus Malzahn’s] hand," Rutledge said.  "That was fun. Three of my favorite players are here from this year’s team.”

Alabama’s turn at SEC Media Days is not until Thursday. But the Crimson Tide were still represented with a familiar face and ring.

“Thursday when Alabama comes, I’m going to be out of town.” Shannon Villa said. “So what better day to come than on Auburn’s day.”

Villa made his first SEC Media Day appearance last year, along with his title ring hat that cost him $300.

“I saw one at the LSU-Alabama team, 1 versus 2, I couldn’t resist. I had to buy one. It took me two years to save my money.”

Alabama and Auburn get plenty of fan fare. But Vanderbilt was also represented.

“We love to recruit the right way. We look at chemistry grades first before forty times.”
