An SEC Network ad of biblical proportions

The SEC Network has unveiled a new commercial during SEC Media Days about the head football coaches of -- you guessed it! -- the SEC. Take a look, but also a listen:

That's Johnny Cash's "The Man Comes Around," a song written specifically about the second coming of Jesus Christ as foretold in the New Testament's Book of Revelation. On its face, the commercial is a neat play on the song's title (we guess), but given that Day 1 here in Hoover has been marked by the TBD punishment of Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall by head coach Gus Malzahn, the lyrics are a bit ... foreboding?

There's a man going around taking names

And he decides who to free and who to blame

Everybody won't be treated all the same

There will be a golden ladder reaching down

When the man comes around

As if the deification of SEC head coaches needed any encouragement. College football. It's literally now a religion!
