It's a sentiment that could be uttered multiple times by Southeastern Conference football coaches Tuesday through Thursday as the league conducts its annual media days extravaganza in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover.

Alabama's Nick Saban set the tone minutes after the Crimson Tide's 42-14 rout of Notre Dame for the national championship in January when he said, "We're going to enjoy it for 24 hours or so."
