In the winter of 1921, fifteen prominent colleges and universities met in Atlanta, Georgia, to form a new organization to promote intercollegiate athletics competition. That organization, soon to become known as the Southern Conference, remains a strong and viable member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) 100 years later. This is the first definitive history of the SoCon, utilizing many rarely-before-seen photos, researched via official league records and minutes, and filled with features and highlights in an easy-to-read format. There's also a detailed look at the present conference membership, which is a remarkably diverse combination of state and private institutions, as well as two military colleges.
