I'm a typical 27-year-old sports writer who thinks he knows everything, and anything but.
Having graduated from an SEC institution for Public Relations and recently obtained my Master's in Communication, I'm aggressively pursuing a career in collegiate athletics communication, media and/or information. Welcome to my dream.
I strongly believe statistics tell a more convincing story than any human ever could, though they can't do it alone. That would be a pretty boring story, right? I include a heavy dose of statistical analysis with my commentary, in hopes to make arguments based on fact and not on public opinion.
I am partial only to the SEC, which - by the way - is better than your conference.
Enjoy the reads, and don't be lazy...get in the conversation and comment!

Well, glad you enjoyed the article. No two opinions will ever be exactly the same. Thanks again!
Hey Kurt, you wrote an article on the 8 most feared defenders and left Clowney off. You fired back at everyone on the comments who challenged you on this. Even when it was pointed out how coaches actively talk about and game plan him. You even said "How do you know what the coaches are doing do you talk to them" I think you need to go read article on ESPN "Gators rally around freshman QB" It talks about why the game plan was limited starting a freshman QB. Brent Pease says and I quote "Understand that last week was really based around no. 7 on their team too, that guy is the best player in the nation." He goes on to tell you all he can do but I don't have to go on and on to prove the point. For you not to think these coaches don't care about what is lining up over there is absurd. It easy to take one guy out of the game and effect his stats. When you base the article off stats you can't argue with you but stats don't tell the whole story. It was unfair of you not to include him. Even if you didn't put him # 1. It seems you had bought into the hype machine. The one that made him an God that he could never live up to then tired to tear him down when coaches began to take him out with double and triple teams.
Greg, I'm not sure exactly what your problem is. Auburn is one of, if not THE, worst team in this league and Arkansas was EASILY the worst last season.
You beat a terrible team by 11 at home. Congratulations.
Sounds like you need to decrease the size of your ego just a bit.
Ari, from what I remember of Pickett he was dynamic, fast and a solid defender but streaky as a shooter.
Auburn isn't going to slay anyone. At least there's football......
Check this one out if you've got a minute!
Maybe we can slay us a giant! Thanks - HB
Missouri State University is a "cupcake"?
You are young and obviously don't do a lot of research.
SEC teams keep comin to Springfield and goin home with an "L". Last year it was Arkansas. Last night it was Auburn.
You're not very good. Poorly coached basketball team. SEC nonsense like "cupcake" backfired on you.
Since you're an SEC bball enthusiast, I wanted to ask you what you think of Rico Pickett, who transferred to Manhattan via Miami Dade and Alabama. Aside from the off the court issues, what is Pickett like as a player?
I'd really appreciate if you could check this out.
It's a unique article about Manhattan's Devon Austin who is adjusting to his first year of pro ball in Europe and I think it speaks a lot about what these guys need to go through in order to achieve their goal of playing for a living.
Take a look at some of the early matchups this week as the season finally begins:
