    That media day?
    On the SEC Media Day it's fun to watch the other coaches genuflect and kiss the ring of Saban.

    Referring more specifically to the selection of dates, etc.
    The "media" has nothing to do with what date is chosen. That is done by the Pac-12 office.

    People sure get worked up over the oddest things.

    Also, 26 apparently doesn't understand how conference media days work.

    There were denigrating the Pac-12 because top players focus on academics and would do so rather than attend what is essentially a no-content media day. Mr. Dodd, Love thinks academics are more important than you (and other media colleagues). Maybe the media should have checked with the stars that they wanted on and see if the day fits. He is doing you a favor, not the reverse, despite the SEC-influenced talking head is the case (however, I think even a star athlete/student in the SEC has missed very important things for academics.

    If I were more sure about this, I would have weighed in earlier. On balance, I thought he was serious.

    Mr. Dary, if you still think it was satire . . . Dodd was indeed dead serious.

    It is my impression also that Mr Dodd values football over academics. no kidding.

    And if you look at some of his tweets (for which he is obviously serious) he gets called a moron a lot. Let's put it this way, Jonathan Swift was taken seriously, but that was almost 300 years ago and people were very gullible. If Dodd was trying to be satiric, he failed horribly, because of some the things he included, like what I excerpted above.

    Hey, that's all I got and I'm kinda proud of it (I was also just being silly), but it must have really upset you - sorry!

    Would you like to insult me over that too?
    As both, I could tell you it reveals much more about you than me.
    Not trying to be insulting but...

    There is nothing more tiresome than someone flashing a credential in an argument...but usually it's a PhD or a fancy job at Harvard...or how many books they wrote...but a high school teaching credential?....that's a new one for me....
