The college football season is just getting started and the November elections will soon be here. We here at Alabama Daily News want you to be ready for both.
Here’s a rundown of who’s who:
Alabama – U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby – the unquestioned leader of the conference. Has a proven track record of success. Has visited the White House numerous times. Currently peaking and has everyone wondering how long the dynasty will last.
Auburn: House Speaker Mac McCutcheon – as powerful as anyone in the league when he wants to be, but has a gauntlet of a season in front him. At least 25 new House members makes for a tough strength of schedule.
Arkansas: House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels – doing things a little differently than the traditional in-conference powers but has enough moxie to pull off something big. Could be a threat to the big boys down the road.
Ole Miss: AEA – Suffering through some self-inflicted pain at the moment. Trying to climb back to relevance but that’s probably one more coaching change away.
Tennessee: Alabama Democratic Party – it’s been almost painful to watch them slip from the top of the conference to just being happy to field a team. There’s some new blood on campus but they have a ways to go before regaining former glory.
