Where athletics and academics meet (and there's video to prove it)

The SEC brethren (along with ESPN, always known to carry the banner for higher learning when it doesn't get in the way of ratings-slash-revenues) have launched the SEC Academic Network, a Web site dedicated to the notion that member institutions not only set the standard for football factories, but for football R&D as well.
