How well do you know the SEC?

Kelly Lambert

Finance vs. football headlines are trickier than they seem.

As football fans know, the acronym SEC stands for the mighty Southeastern Conference. However, normal people might know a very different SEC — the Securities and Exchange Commission. These two are very different.

Every now and then you'll run across a headline that could feasibly cause you to mix up your SECs. (SEO tip for SEC football bloggers hoping to improve their audience on Wall Street.)

See if you can determine which of these SEC headlines are about finance and which are about football. It's tougher than it looks.

What did you get?

As much as "Suspended by the SEC — Sell Your Marijuana" screams SEC football, not a single one of these headlines has anything to do with the gridiron.

So the moral of the story: Don't believe everything you read, kids. Or at the very least, read past the headline.
