On stage: 11:30 a.m.-2:20 p.m.

Coach: Gus Malzahn

Players: Jeremy Johnson, Jr., QB; Jonathan Jones, Sr., DB; Kris Frost, Sr., LB

Question Malzahn is sure to face: How much can Auburn’s defense improve under new defensive coordinator Will Muschamp? The Tigers ranked no better than ninth in any major SEC statistical category. Will they make enough of a jump to make Auburn the team to beat in the hard to handicap SEC West?


On stage: 2:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m.

Coach: Jim McElwain

Players: Jonathan Bullard, Sr., DE; Brandon Powell, So., WR; Vernon Hargreaves III, Jr., DB

Question McElwain is sure to face: What should be expected of the Gators in Season 1 under McElwain after they went a combined 11-13 the past two years? Optimism runs high with any coaching change, but how does McElwain hope to make the Gators a winner with issues on the offensive line, at running back and at linebacker?


On stage: 2:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m.

Coach: Derek Mason

Players: Ralph Webb, So., RB; Nigel Bowden, So., LB; Spencer Pulley, Sr., C

Question Mason is sure to face: Do you expect to be at Media Days in 2016? Mason’s first season (3-9, 0-8 SEC) was a disaster, even at Vandy, which James Franklin had in a bowl the previous three seasons. Mason jettisoned his two coordinators. If the Commodores don’t improve, he could be next.
