SEC Media Days wrapped up in Atlanta on Thursday afternoon and there was one common theme: the coaches don't like NIL. Nick Saban called it, "a competitive balance issue." Kirby Smart (with a fresh 10-year, $112 million extension) worried that young athletes may be getting too much money, too fast. Overall it was more of the same posturing from superstar coaches, but the train on NIL has left the station.

Dan Wetzel & SI's Pat Forde discuss the latest round of comments from these coaches, weak comments from ACC commissioner Jim Phillips, a new proposal on transfers & the end of the turnover chain in Miami.

Wrapping up the pod, they guys look into the case of the stolen R2-D2 in Florida and the existential punishment on man that known as the Velveeta Martini.
