I've covered athletics on both coasts of the United States. Currently hosting three sports talk shows for ESPN Radio's Atlantic City affiliate (97.3 ESPN-FM) and I cover the national college football recruiting landscape for Bleacher Report.
I served on the Rutgers University Scarlet Knights football recruiting staff under coach Greg Schiano for three seasons (2006-2008) before switching over to the press box. We won three bowls and Ray Rice ran... a lot.
Following graduation from Rutgers, I drove across the country and settled in Southern California. Soon I was serving as a multimedia sports reporter in Los Angeles and Orange County.
I joined Bleacher Report as part of the 2012 Summer Olympics reporting team, and have taken on roles as a national columnist for college basketball, NHL and PGA action.

this writer is an idiot. Nebraska doesnt need a new QB especially a slow one. We have tommy armstrong , who has shown flashes of greatness. Also we have elite 11 finalist QB Johnny Stanton. He was redshirted this year. But could pass up armstrong this summer.
There is much controversy about what to do with early season one or two loss teams and undefeated teams and the lack of a real playoff' Please read this.
A NCAA FOOTBALL PLAYOFF for NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
A Simple Guide by J D Age 76 9-1-2013
FACT: There are always 13 Saturdays in the 92 days of September thru November
STEP ONE: Require all teams to finish their 12 GAMES by the END of November. There would be time for ONE OPEN DATE . Or TWO using the LAST SATURDAY in AUGUST. STEP TWO: Have an NCAA selection committee pick the TOP 32 Football Teams: FOUR Divisions would be set up: East, South, Midwest, West. Four Number One Seeds would be chosen in each Division and progressively on down: Number Two through Eight. SEED Number One would play Number Eight, Number Two plays Number Seven and so on.
STEPTHREE: SIXTEEN GAMES would be played ( 32 Chosen Teams) on the First Satuday in December. The SWEET SIXTEEN winners would play on the second Saturday in December. STEP FOUR: The Elite Eight Winners are in the HIGHEST FOUR BOWLS called CHAMPIONSHIP BOWLS and would be played on New Years Day. STEP FIVE: The FOUR QUARTER FINAL TEAMS play their TWO GAMES on January 8 or later. STEP SIX : THE FINALS: 2 WINNERS would play a week later near January 17 for the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. Conclusion: Only FOUR TEAMS would NEED to PLAY past the Holiday Weekend of January the 1st. Andthe rest of the Teams could go back to their studies and Classes.
Addendum: The 30 plus BOWLS are kept . The LOSERS in the FIRST or SECOND Round can PLAY AGAIN in ANY BOWLS but the FOUR CHAMPIONSHIIP BOWLS and rejoin the Top Twenty five.
Dude you should just cover East coast stuff because you really know diddly about USC football. Article was a complete waste of time to read about some punk kid with a big head and a bad attitude because he wasn't offered a scholarship in the first place. I wouldn't want this kid to play for the Trojans and he will become some kind of cancer wherever he ends up.
Dude, one of your articles was shown on TV during the LIU Brooklyn - James Madison game. They were advertising B/R and they showed your article.
I am from Montana and read your article on the Griz. 30 points is a lot but I can understand Montana is well off the map. I live and work in the Pocono Mountains in PA. The player you talked about for Montana has not played a game in a month and is out for the season (foot injury). So by your logic with Ward out we will lose 100 to 50 not going to happen. Here is a hint Will Cherry Kareem Jamar Montana can really shoot the 3 and play some D. The next time you have to write one of these you should see whats going on with the teams your writing about. Email me about Montana I'll fill you in. I think you will shocked about how Montana does I'm not saying but they will make it game you never know
Tyler your post on Whitehead to St. John's is completely false from what I hear...can you detail where you received this info?
Tyler why don't you investigate why Deapul keeps such an inept AD? Its a decade plus and Depaul has consistently deteriorated in the mens Basketball program under her watch. The BS that it is an urban school and cannot compete is just that BS. Marqutte, St Johns Cincinatti Gonzaga - hell the list goes on - Depaul fans are fed up -
