Dude’s Top 10: No. 1 – An Oral History of the SEC Network
This series focuses on my favorite posts of all time. Lest I be labeled as overly arrogant, please note: 1. This was new DYC Editor-in-Chief Chad Floyd’s idea. 2. These are my “favorite” posts not my “best” posts. I don’t have “best” posts, because that would imply that I had better posts and good posts to begin with.

Running this site has been a blast. When Chad asked me to do a “Top 10” list of my favorite posts I spent an embarrassing amount of time researching myself and my own writing. The posts that made the initial cut all fit the same bill: they were light-hearted and fun.
In some ways, that’s not surprising. As I said in my farewell address last month, I created the site to entertain and to inform. I’m not all that great at informing folks. So hopefully I’m better at entertaining.
This post, which went up last August, was barely even read by anyone. Seriously, from August through November last year this piece was read a total of 240 times. For comparison’s sake, the site picked up 498,694 reads over that time period. So how did a post that accounted for .048% of the site’s readership (at its peak) earn the top spot on my Top 10 list? It’s simple. The post was wildly entertaining to write.
I planned this post weeks in advance by Tweeting at DirecTV about the SEC Network. I got into the falsified headspace of my co-writers at DudeYouCrazy., and I went to town. I crack myself up reading this post—even today. And I was in tears writing it.
So do me one last favor and go read it now. Or don’t. Whatever.
That’s all I got/
