I am a journalism major at the University of Memphis.

I am a Staff Writer for the Memphis Tigers' Rivals affiliate, I've also been featured on The Memphis Edge, the official sports blog of The Commercial Appeal;, a blog for Midwest sports fans; and, an entertainment/sports site for Memphis. I report sports at The Daily Helmsman, too.

Don't tell me I shouldn't go into journalism just because you didn't make it, either. That's offensive to me.


Feel free to e-mail me at, guys. I always enjoy an educated debate.

See the girl in my profile picture? She's the best thing that ever happened to me.

    Dude, I just saw an insane YouTube video on this panda bear with a 46" vertical. . . but of course, with his girth, they think they could convert such insane leg strength and make him into one helluva road grader of an O-lineman. I think Tommy West at the U of M has a good chance at signing him. I gotta send you the link. . .

    LMAO ;-)

    My statements are not blind or ignorant.

    America is probably the most hated country on the planet, I'm sorry if this is hard to deal with, but I'm sorry to let you know the truth.

    Maybe if you left the country, went travelling, had some life experiences you would understand.

    i was replying to comment, about someone who was upset that Americans are rooting for Russian fighters and then saying that all Pride FC fighters are loosing in the UFC. (Which is so far from accurate is embarrassing)

    And if my writing mechanics and me looking pale in a photo that is over exposed due to a flash indoors is the best thing you can come up with, I have reason to believe that your journalism career wont go much further after your graduation.

    Maybe you are still frustrated with the loss to Missouri still, or maybe it's all that built up sexual frustration you must have.

    could you link me to the article where i said that? i do not recall the article.

    although, i do believe what i said isn't very far from the truth, the US isn't the beloved country you may think it is. maybe puberty will give you some clarity.

    Hey John,

    Just wanted to thank you for becoming a fan. While it's not the reason I write, it is still nice to hear that people are "fans."

    If you don't mind me asking, which article(s) did you read that prompted you to click that "become a fan" button? Ha.

    Roll Tide,
