It’s that time of year again for conference media days, in which largely nothing of consequence is revealed, but the dropped crumbs nonetheless serve as vital sustenance for starving college football fans everywhere.

Your very own South Carolina Gamecocks are taking the podium today in Hoover, Ala., last but not least at 4 p.m. on the SEC Network. Coach Will Muschamp will be joined by senior quarterback Jake Bentley, senior wide receiver Bryan Edwards, and senior linebacker T.J. Brunson.

Speaking of Bentley, the veteran signal-caller has been named to watch lists for both the Maxwell Award, given to player of the year, and the Davey O’Brien Award, bestowed on the country’s best quarterback. It’s safe to say expectations are high for Bentley this season.

Oh, and let’s not leave out senior defensive lineman Javon Kinlaw, who landed on the watch list for the Bednarik Award, given to the defensive player of the year.

But back to media days, which is what’s really important. Here are a few items of note to catch up on from other teams’ sessions, because hey, everyone loves talking about the Gamecocks:

And finally, here’s an interesting nugget on USC’s possible participation in Atlanta’s Chick-fil-A Kickoff, which has bafflingly avoided including the Gamecocks so far:

What are you guys hoping to hear about from South Carolina today? What’s the over/under on how many questions Muschamp gets about how brutal this schedule is? Feel free to chat away!
