Football and religion are two sides of the same coin in the SEC. And in the SEC, that coin is carried by the bag man, a fan who believes he's leveraging football success $500 or $50,000 at a time.

Last week, SB Nation posted a great long-form article on the shadow-world of bag men paying paying college football players.

A college football bag man can draw attention to himself, but never importance. He will never be famous or be the annoying rich guy hovering next to the coach right after a big game.

Bag men operate in clandestine spots like the Waffle House. They talk in person as much as possible and stay out of the public eye. Like drug dealers, they carry lots of burners.

They don't have an FDIC-insured bank account, but a pool of money can be accessed quickly for things like large single sums to convince a recruit to sign or maintenance payments to current players.

Bag men live close to campus so they can meet up with their players to give them frequent payments of $200 to $500. It's also easy to get used mid-range SUVs for players.

The way they see it, if you can help the team win games on the field and also help a struggling family out, then why not. It's called the SEC for a reason, it's about straight earning cash.
