Bragging Rights: A Season Inside the SEC, College Football's Toughest Conference
A compelling narrative that follows the progress of a few key players and coaches over the last year. Joe Namath, Herschel Walker, Bo Jackson, Reggie White, Emmitt Smith ...they all come out of the Southeast Conference (SEC). The SEC is the most exciting football conference in the country. Southerners are among the most devoted, most fanatical football fans in the nation; the average attendance at an SEC game is 70,000 (the highest in the US), with hundreds of thousands more watching the games on TV and listening on the radio. The SEC's nationally televised championship game annually attracts in excess of 20 million viewers. The SEC has more good teams, more good players, more All-Americans than any other region. This book looks at some of the biggest SEC teams, how they operate, what the players go through. From the locker rooms to the coaches to the championships, this is an in-depth look at the state of Southern football today. By extension it offers broader pictures of national college football.
