About

Formerly 'Uncle Popov', I have decided to start going by my given name as I make a return to Bleacher Report!

Sports is my passion to the point where my wife thinks it is more important that she; she may not be entirely wrong! My sports interest is wide-ranging, but I tend to be most interested in college football. I am neither a journalist nor a former athlete, unless you count my one season playing college football...in Japan. Seriously.

I am currently an assistant professor at Alabama State University. I have conducted sports-related research in the past and will, on occasion, incorporate that into my articles.

Here are some of the works which I am most proud :

NCAA Football Conferences and the Broken System - http://bleacherreport.com/articles/284690-the-bcs-conferences-and-justice-in-college-football (some people missed the point on this one)

Sports Media and the Loss of Power - http://bleacherreport.com/articles/267378-jeff-passan-sports-media-and-the-loss-of-power

Josh Hamilton and Human Frailty - http://bleacherreport.com/articles/234967-disasterpieces-josh-hamilton-addiction-and-human-frailty

Brett Favre's Football Addiction - http://bleacherreport.com/articles/219462-hi-my-name-is-brett-and-i-am-an-addict-brett-favre-and-football

    Never a problem Popov. I remember those early days of Napster fondly...and still grind my teeth when I think of how Metallica banned me.
