Prevost: Slinging arrows around the SEC

Prevost: Do you trust your SEC coach?

As we approach late September, SEC football is in full swing, along with another bruising competitive race - the Republican presidential campaign. It's difficult not to notice the parallels between the SEC and presidential politics. Big money. Bigger egos.
