HOOVER, Ala. -- Southeastern Conference Media Days came to an end here Friday as LSU head coach Les Miles, quarterback Jordan Jefferson, cornerback Patrick Peterson and linebacker Kelvin Sheppard addressed members of the media at the Wynfrey Hotel.
Over 800 members of the media were in attendance to greet the Tigers, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Auburn on the final day of Media Days. LSU began its rotation through the various rooms of media at 11 a.m. and concluded with Miles joining ESPN's College Football Live at 2 p.m.
Miles and the players did one-on-one interviews with ESPN, ESPN SEC, ESPNU, CBS, Comcast Sports Southeast, Fox Sports Net, Sirius/XM Radio, the SEC Network and the SEC Digital Network. They also met with members of the print and electronic media in separate ballrooms of the Wynfrey Hotel.
The Tigers return 12 starters - six on offense and four on defense - from a squad that finished with a 9-4 record and a second-place SEC Western Division finish in 2009. Peterson and Sheppard were unanimous preseason first-team All-SEC selections by the league coaches and media.
With SEC Media Days complete, the Tigers now turn their attention to preseason camp. Players report to campus on Wednesday, Aug. 4 with the first workout schedule a day later on Thursday, Aug. 5. LSU Fan Day is set for Sunday, Aug. 8, at the Maravich Center and Carl Maddox Field House.
