HOOVER, Al. - Wednesday was day number two of the 2013 SEC media days. It was also the longest day for everyone, as 18 players and 6 coaches made their way through interviews.

The day was filled with close to non-stop interviews. Six teams - Texas A&M, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Auburn, and Arkansas - made their way through our TV room.

The most important teams were Tennessee, Kentucky, and Texas A&M. Last year Mizzou beat Kentucky 33-10. The Tigers also picked up a win against Tennessee in a game that had four overtimes before there was a winner.

But, Texas A&M came out on top against Mizzou, beating the Tigers 59-29. For the 2013 season, Mizzou faces Tennessee, Kentucky and Texas A&M at the tail end of the season in November. The players from those teams say they want to see a "W" across their stat line after they face Mizzou.


Kentucky running back Raymond Sanders said, "I wouldn't say it's about revenge, they had a good team. They beat us last year so I mean just like every other game, we want to come in and win." His teammate Donte Rumph, defensive tackle, disagreed, "Every game is going to be revenge in the SEC, not only the SEC but the non-confernece games too. But you know we're not really worried about Mizzou."

Tennessee junior Antonio Richardson doesn't seem worried about the Tigers either. "I see us winning that game. Last year we shouldn't have lost, but it is what it is. You know Mizzou, they're a storied program, but you know we have to go in there and do what we gotta do and get the W."

Senior lineman Jake Matthews of Texas A&M has faced the Tigers a few times in his career. He said of the conference, "There are so many great teams in the SEC, you can't overlook any games. Week in and week out you're going against another quality defense and another great defensive line. That's one of the things that I noticed about playing in the SEC, that the depth and the players are just so great and we love the competitive nature as a group up front."
