LSU at SEC Media Days 2016

NCAA Football: SEC Media Day Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

After days of mind-numbing coachspeak, Bret Bielema calling too many things "sexy", and Saban and Finebaum getting into the lamest "confrontation" I’ve seen in years, it’s finally time for Les Miles to tell us all how his summer vacation went. Coach Miles will take the podium in Hoover shortly after 10 am CT, and it will be live on SEC Network and the WatchESPN service. We’ll break down his comments here and try to collect all the other interviews he and the players give in Hoover today.

My live notes on Les Miles time at the podium, full transcript to follow later

Starts with a pretty compelling speech on what's gone on in Baton Rouge lately and how he wants to gives his players a platform to affect change....Summer Vacation update and Miles family update...Cam Cameron is back and healthy...says Harris is more ambitious...Fournette is keeping his weight on track... (forgive me, at this point Miles basically goes through the whole depth chart) KJ Malone will play LT or LG..."OG Josh Boutte, should he decide to have a great fall, can be one of our more dominant players"...Arden Key is going to give QBs fits...John Battle is back healthy...says he hasn't set any curfews for the team due to the protests, but he does advise them...A lot of talk about getting the right guys in position on the OL...Wants to gives his players the opportunity to be leaders in the community, though managing that in the busy fall will be tough...only one real question about the offense opening up, but Miles answered with the usual comments about playing with a balance.
