About

I've covered athletics on both coasts of the United States. Currently serving as a national columnist on the college football recruiting beat for Bleacher Report.

I spent three seasons with the Rutgers University football recruiting staff under coach Greg Schiano before switching over to the press box. We won three bowls and Ray Rice ran... a lot.

After departing Rutgers, I drove across the country and settled in Southern California, working as a multimedia sports reporter in Los Angeles and Orange County.

I joined Bleacher Report as part of the 2012 Summer Olympics coverage team and remained with the company, taking on roles in several departments. I also serve as a talk show host for ESPN Radio's Atlantic City affiliate (97.3 ESPN-FM).

    I like how you didnt allow for comment at the end of the story about the hooker that some no name worthless college team signed....its kinda like danica patrick in a way. the college is looking for one thing out of this and it sure isnt a CB....it publicity and you provided that to them good job....WTF are they gonna do with a women? unless she benches 240 and runs a 4.5 or better she wont make it...just like all the other women who tried and failed at playing football....i could care less that they try who cares...getting a medal for just showing up is worthless.... show me you can play and then ill give a FU*CK....So wheres this bitch gonna change and shower after games???? Im guessing the coach will have to wait until she washes her hair in the other locker room alone then wait for all the guys to get dressed so she can come to their locker room for the after game speech???? that or i hope she likes looking at dick....i see her getting cut before the season unless like i said earlier the college is looking for PR points then she'll make the team....NEVER touch the field but she'll make the team like Rudy lol....

    The only thing i see in her furture is giving out handies in the locker room for the guys who play well....screw game balls when you can get game handjobs and blowjobs lol......

    Tyler, when I read your headline for this story I thought about the Clemson Tigers...not Auburn. It may come as a surprise to you but Auburn is just like Clemson but Clemson has a Lake called Lake Hatwell. Next time you write about the Tigers. You might want to consider that Clemson is just as well known as Auburn as the Tigers...if not better. After all they fly a War Eagle around their stadium so I always get a little confused as to whether the Tiger or the War Eagle is their mascot. But when you say the Tigers...their is no confusion in my mind and the mins of many a great college football fan. Clemson is the true Tigers of college football. We have proven that we do not take a back seat to the SEC and when it comes to Auburn...we can hold our own on the field with them too.

    If Vic Wild is an "American ex-patriot," how can he be on Russia's team, given that ex-patriots are simply Americans abroad?

    Hey Mr. Donahue:

    Do you stand by that prediction that Wichita State "Should take a significant step backwards" for the 2013 - 2014 season?

    Shame, shame, shame. Seems to me that once again, someone with east coast ties did not do their homework about a midwest team.

    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.

    FIGHT ON

    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

    Go Griz
