SEC Media Days provide coaches and players the opportunity to share their insights on the year before, or on their improvement since, with the sports world.

On Thursday, the last of the three-day media circus, LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger did his Mad Hatter of a coach proud. The former Georgia and JUCO transfer struggled in his first season under center in Baton Rouge, but is expected to show vast improvement in his second and final year on campus.

In fact, when asked about the improvements he was making, as well as working with new offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, Mettenberger cited SEC legend Tim Tebow.

But The Chosen One might not exactly be happy with Mettenberger’s candid commentary.

Mettenberger touched upon a host of other topics aside from Tebow and his mechanics. Like Alabama’s AJ McCarron and Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, the Tigers passer was a participant at the Manning Camp.

However, only he and McCarron finished out the full time at the camp. Mettenberger explained how treacherous the surrounding night life could be after Manziel “overslept,” missed a meeting, and was sent home early.

Remember, he began his collegiate career competing with current Georgia superstar Aaron Murray for the starting role in Athens. He was asked how he believed Dawgs fans would welcome him back in Between the Hedges.

Finally, one of the biggest stories to have begun at Media Days is South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney’s statement that he was able to see the fear in the eyes of guys like Murray and Clemson’s Tajh Boyd.

Clowney did not mention Mettenberger by name, but the signal-caller was forthright with his thoughts on Clowney’s trash talk anyways.
