Live-blogging Phil Fulmer

1:11 p.m. Fulmer says there have been no off-the-field problems since February. "I think that says something about our focus, our attitude." Or maybe it says that all the players that would be trouble have already been locked up.

1:15 p.m. "I'd much rather be playing for the SEC championship in Atlanta in December than to be picked first in July." Good luck with that.

1:17 p.m. Fulmer has not been given a subpoena. "This is not the place for that kind of thing." This might mark the first time this question has been asked in any media days anywhere. Gotta love the SEC.

1:23 p.m. "I think we're getting close" to the Tennessee teams of the late 1990s. Tennessee: Trying to get back to where the program was ten years ago for the last five years.

1:27 p.m. Here's the news story on Fulmer allegedly being served. (HT: EDSBS)

1:30 p.m. Fulmer refuses to discuss the subpoena again. "I've talked all about that I'm going to talk about that." To Fulmer's credit, he might have gotten hungry and eaten the subpoena without realizing what it was.

1:33 p.m. The subpoena talk is actually the most interesting discussion here. This would be so much more entertaining if Fulmer actually could shoot frosting from his eyes. The people asking about about the court papers would already be covered in liquid sugar.

1:36 p.m. On the criticism of him: "People want to start talking about the record and all of these things." Because, y'know, that's the worst possible way to evaluate a coach.

Fulmer is done. The podium appears to have maintained its structural integrity.
