Friday July 18, 2014 A Links Recap from SEC Media Days: Muschamp, Driskel, Debose, Tabor, plus more

Updated: 7:44am, July 18

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Another SEC Football Media Days has come and gone. The Gators stopped in Monday on the first day of the four-day hypefest in Hoover, Ala.

Alabama coach Nick Saban closed the show on Thursday. In between, there was enough typing and tweeting among the assembled media (a record 1,267 credentials were issued) to make Tolstoy's "War and Peace" seem like a leaflet.

To save you some time, here are some notable stories on the Gators and SEC that came out of Hoover:
