    The CEO of this site was fighting with people on Twitter, calling reporters ugly and suggesting they lacked "the balls" to meet him face-to-face. We know the insinuation there. Also bragged about getting thrown out of bars. Where do I send my resume, again?

    Well, according to his site profile, he's "on a mission to prove that Kentucky football has a pulse and find new ways to combine fine cigars and SEC football."

    So maybe someone insulted his Wildcats. Or his cigar.

    Well this certainly flies in the face of the legitimacy I assumed they were aiming toward. I'd advise someone take an internship at Bleacher Report before working for a company that picks drunken Twitter fights.

    There are some good people at SDS, including the guy that posted this job. They deserve better representation in public than what their drunken former CEO was willing to provide.

    I applaud this. If the OP is right and the site really is trying to make a turn to a legit source and not just clickbait, this is a step in the right direction.

    Do you just copy pieces of other posts?

    Regarding this site: Does it do a strong job of developing the pro-SEC narrative?

    Also, if one were to believe -- and I am spitballing here, of course -- that following the SEC and knowing college football are mutually exclusive concepts, would that person be excluded from consideration?

    He makes some good points.
