I enjoy SEC Football and started Saturday Down South in July of 2010 with Kevin Duffey and Drew Roberts to discuss football in the best conference in America, more out of frustration from the lack of quality coverage. Since then, SDS has grown to over 1 million visitors a month, and we're pumped about the big future ahead.
I write most of the content for SDS, in addition to being the main editor, and I handle all the media representation on Radio or TV. I handle roughly 15-20 radio interviews per week to discuss SEC football in season.
Our social media branding on SDS is second to none, and our distribution model is tops in college football, as we have over 1 million fans on facebook among our various pages. We have over 400,000 in our SEC page and our largest team pages are 200,000 Alabama fans and 160,000 Georgia fans. On Twitter, we have over 500,000 followers on our various accounts and like facebook, we have different feeds for each team.
Kevin, Drew and myself also run a couple of other football websites that are still in the early stages of development, and they are DirectSnap and Coaching Roots. Feel free to shoot me a message and introduce yourself.

The only team I would add would be Auburn. I think Gus Malzahn wins six this year and takes the Tigers to a bowl game.
Any other teams you would consider? Tennessee?
LSU: 92,400 (100,000 projected)
Texas A&M: 82,589 (102,000 projected)
S. Carolina: 80,250
Arkansas: 72,000 (80,000 projected)
Missouri: 71,009 (77,000 projected)
Ole Miss: 60,580
Miss State: 55,082 (61,337 projected)
Here's who I would take:
I just don't see what the big deal is. Coaches are paid to win games and rally fan bases.
Maybe I just like a little controversy...
Besides Brad Wing, name another player who wouldn't have benefited from another year of development.
