HOOVER, Ala. | The three players representing each team at SEC Media Days go to their separate corners of the big ballroom at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham and hold court for about 20 minutes.
Heisman Trophy candidate Todd Gurley drew an predictably large contingent Thursday that wanted to talk to the playmaking running back.
Receiver Chris Conley, fresh off the release of his Star Wars fan film that has generated plenty of buzz on the Internet, was a magnet for those who wanted to talk about that or NCAA reform since Conley is a leader nationally for student-athlete issues.
Linebacker Ramik Wilson was OK being the other guy, even if he was the SEC‚Äôs leading tackler last season.
‚ÄúThey‚Äôre talking more,‚Äù Wilson said. ‚ÄúThat‚Äôs fine.‚Äù
Gurley told reporters Wilson gets his tackles in practice because he ‚Äúcheats sometimes,‚Äù because he knows the offensive plays.
Said Wilson: ‚ÄúThey run the ball away from me and I go get them.‚Äù
