‘Religion of SEC Football’ is a real college class

If you thought earning college credit for playing “Pokemon Go” was cool, how about a class focused on SEC Football? Well, thanks to Presbyterian College, you have the opportunity to do just that.

The school is offering a class called “Religion of SEC Football,” taught by Dr. Michael Nelson and Dr. Terry Barr, otherwise known as the coolest professors in America.

The one-credit elective course is available to first-year students.

Just check out the amazing description:

“Woo Pig Sooie!? Roll Tide!? Go Cocks!? What is it about college football that turns otherwise sane people into raving lunatics? Why is it that each fall millions of people schedule their lives around SEC football, spending hundreds of thousands of dollars for RV’s and tailgating for days prior to a game? Why do fans often hate another school — such as the ‘Bama fan who poisoned 130-year old trees at Auburn? This class will attempt to answer these sorts of questions by exploring the ‘religion’ of Southeastern Conference football and how each of us fit into that faith.”

How amazing is that?

Interestingly enough, Presbyterian College actually plays the Florida Gators this season. Perhaps the college course will help the team learn their opponent, but we wouldn’t put our money on it.
