It's the unofficial start of the college football season.

SEC Media Days in Hoover, Alabama begin on Monday and run through Thursday.

It's when hundreds of media members gather at the Wynfrey Hotel and listen to every head coach from the SEC and the commissioner speak. The press and bloggers also get to ask questions to three players each coach brings.

It's just a big show, but there are usually a couple big headlines that come out of it. The big topics this year will include the NCAA's new early signing period for college football and transfer rules.

For UGA, topics will likely include the Bulldogs being one of the favorites to win in the SEC East, head coach Kirby Smart's success on the recruiting trail, the development of Jacob Eason with a new quarterback coming in, and the senior running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel returning for one last season.
