SEC Media Days one-liners always make for a good laugh. And on day one, there were certainly a few in the house with Steve Spurrier addressing the media.

But a darkhorse for the best interview from day one was Missouri WR TJ Moe. He was a fantastic interview. If, and I say if, Missouri has a tough time on the field this year, they will never lose a press conference as long as Moe is available to the media. He’s a media member’s best friend.

For the most part, it is coach speak and basic jargon, but here are the best quotes from day one:

“It’s easier to win the national championship than the SEC. Ask Nick Saban.” – Steve Spurrier

“We don’t have the Honey Badger back there returning kicks, but we got some pretty good boys.” – Steve Spurrier on special teams

“Auburn and Arkansas have got our number. I’ll admit it.” – Steve Spurrier

“They’ve also got prettier girls, the air’s fresher and the toilet paper’s thicker.” – Missouri receiver T.J. Moe said with a straight face, when talking about the SEC

“The SEC has had teams that are dominant,” he said, “but not all 12 teams have been dominant. It’s one or two.” – TJ Moe (I would argue with him on this one)

“Everybody wears a tie or sundress to games [in the SEC]. Look at me. I wore a Dri-fit polo to Big 12 media day last year.” – TJ Moe

“You think I make the schedule? If I made the schedule, Georgia would be playing LSU and we’d be playing Ole Miss.” – Steve Spurrier on playing against SEC West opponents.

“Our fans, to say that they are excited about us being in the SEC would be a complete understatement. They’ve become fanatical about it.” – Missouri coach Gary Pinkel on the Tigers’ inaugural season in the SEC

“It’s a pretty damn hard league.” – Aggies’ coach Kevin Sumlin on the SEC

“I’ve got me a new knee.” – Steve Spurrier on one of the reasons he feels good about 2012 after January surgery.

“I’m a cold-blooded player. I like to talk trash and get in my opponent’s head. I also like to back it up.” – South Carolina DB DJ Swearinger on his play

“We’re dropping the anchor and we’re drawing a line in the sand and not backing up. We’re ready for a fight.‬” – Vanderbilt coach James Franklin

“People act like we play a bunch of high school teams. We’ve played in a pretty good league.” – Gary Pinkel

“Year two is a lot different than year one. I remember last year I walked all the way down Radio Row to the mall and not one person said a word to me, and I turned around and came back.” – James Franklin.
