HOOVER, Ala. (WAFB) - While the Big 12 holds an emergency meeting and Texas A&M talks about blocking Texas from joining the conference, SEC Media Days have come and gone for another year.

Two of those teams to close out the event were Auburn and Arkansas, one of which will face the LSU Tigers in its SEC home opener.

Bryan Harsin is the highly successful head coach from Boise State, who is looking to prove he can compete against the monstrous competition of the Southeastern Conference. Harsin isn’t a man short on words. His opening statement in the big room lasted more than 16 minutes.

Auburn’s quarterback situation is interesting. LSU fans certainly weren’t happy when Bo Nix was named the SEC Freshman of the Year in 2019 over Derek Stingley Jr. Then, Nix’s sophomore year was often a very rough one. Now, former LSU quarterback TJ Finley has been thrown into the Auburn QB competition as well.

Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman talked about why he thinks he fits in with the Razorbacks.

It’s hard not to like him. He comes across as a “salt of the earth” guy.

Pittman also talked about the 2020 matchup against LSU, a game in which there was uncertainty just two days before it was to be played, whether or not it would actually take place.

The Razorbacks return nine starters on offense and 10 on defense for 2021.
