SEC Media Days: Bret Bielema Schedule, Bob Holt Clinches Another SECMD Victory and More

Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

There'll surely be plenty of Bielema reaction after his appearance Wednesday afternoon, so here's some things going on before the topic changes.

We're only at the midway point for SEC Media Days, but you can go ahead and chalk up another triumph for Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reporter Bob Holt.

Holt's ability to, you know, ask questions at press conferences and even prepare his questions ahead of time has left other reporters in awe. He even got his own feature Wednesday morning in AL.com, which is highly recommended reading.

A Twitter search for his name will reveal just how much he's clearly dominating. As the AL.com story indicates, he asked Gus Malzahn 7 of the 27 questions he faced during his press conference.

As you may recall, we also recognized his victory last year as well. And, no, we have not heard about Holt's boss playing solitaire yet, but there's still time.

Bret Bielema graces the SEC Media Days stage at 2:30 CT this afternoon. It will be televised on ESPNU.

Excited? Nervous? Scared? We're talking Bielema with a live mic in front of 1,000 or so media folk. The chances we'll end up having to defend some ridiculous statement are high. Although, Kevin Trainor, the Associate AD for Public Relations at Arkansas, is the moderator for the entire event. So if we could get a camera to stay on his face while Bielema's at the podium, we would be much obliged.

MORE PLAYS UNDER REVIEW

These new rules go along with new penalties for hitting quarterbacks below the knee, and removing the 15-yard penalty when targeting is overturned.

Officials will also be emphasizing appropriate pace of play (BIELEMA!) but it's kind of a gray standard. They say they're not going to hurry up for teams but they're not going to slow down either. It's a "crisp jog". Whatever that means.
