SEC Media Days are attracting some intense fans

Wednesday July 15th, 2015

It is well known by now that fans in SEC Country care very deeply about their teams, which explains why a series of July press conferences in Hoover, Ala., have turned into a beacon for the most intense supporters the region has to offer.

With SEC Media Days underway, fans are inundating the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Wynfrey Hotel to cheer, and jeer, the coaches, officials and players in attendance.

The 2015 edition has seen an elderly man in a Bear Bryant costume, two Ohio State fans reminding everyone who took the inaugural College Football Playoffs Championship trophy, and the return of a fan known to college football aficionados as "Ring Hat Guy."

The coaches are not immune from the zaniness themselves, with Arkansas’s Bret Bielma hoping to top Mississippi State's Dan Mullen’s Yeezy Boosts from Tuesday, with a very sparkly pair of Air Force Ones.
