‘How the SEC Became Goliath ’ by Ray Glier
How the SEC came to dominate college football is a question every other conference is trying to answer. Enter Ray Glier, who has covered the SEC since 1986. Glier’s book, “How The SEC Became Goliath,” takes a historical, analytical, and anecdotal look at the past six seasons. Clearly written for those with eyes already fixed on SEC football, at times it’s an exhaustive, clear-eyed study of a college-football takeover; other times it’s a love letter to the college sports’s sexiest conference.
