Georgia's representatives at SEC media days will be ...

ATHENS - SEC media days, which is becoming the college football version of Super Bowl media day, is next week. The three-day ritual marks ... we are obligated to write this ... "the unofficial start of the football season."

Georgia is going through the rigmarole on Thursday, and here are the three players, along with head coach Mark Richt, who will represent the program: QB Aaron Murray, TE Arthur Lynch and DE Garrison Smith.

They're not surprising selections, for those who follow the program on a daily basis. All are seniors, for one. Murray is obvious. Lynch is one of the leaders on offense, and the Massachusetts native is a media favorite. Smith is the lone senior returning starter on defense.

There will be a lot of star power next week in Hoover: Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, is making the trip. So is Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, leading one to wonder if he'll bump into Brent Musberger in the hallway.

South Carolina man-child Jadeveon Clowney, expected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft, is also making the trip.

In addition, LSU will bring quarterback Zach Mettenberger, the former Georgia backup, for a second straight year.
