I'm a 2011 graduate of Middle Tennessee State University with a degree in Electronic Media Journalism. So yes, I'm more trained at this than most.
Despite what my degree says, I still consider myself a Boilermaker at heart, since I grew up in the shadow of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. It's for that reason that I was once a B/R Featured Columnist for Purdue basketball.
I'm now an FC again, covering as much of the nation as they'll let me. For even more on college basketball, check out The Back Iron (backiron.blogspot.com), home of the exclusive Back Iron Index, which attempts to dig up the real best 68 teams in America.
For two-plus years, I produced and hosted broadcasts on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville, one of the nation's most popular sports-talk radio stations. Those included live broadcasts of basketball games for both the University of Tennessee and the Belmont Bruins. In addition, I spent two seasons as a reporter for Titans Radio, covering the Tennessee Titans.

I'm always down to discuss ball on Twitter or in my comment threads. But, one warning to all the trolls out there: I troll right back. Hard. Come at me with pitchforks drawn, watch out for the cattle prod.
Scott........enjoyed the "most disastrous coach" article. I would submit, however, that Wade's tenure at Maryland was by far and away THE quintessential disaster. Taking a top tier program and bringing it back down to pre-1969 status was a real work of art. Bob couldn't make the transistion to college and it was apparent from day one. Also, Ruth over Mays.......that's too easy.
care for a fan add?
I am hoping you have time to read my new piece.
Thank you so much,
Title: 2010 US Open Semifinal: 2nd Best Novak Djokovic To Topple Roger Federer
Excellent article on Sun Belt Football 2010 Preview: Ranking The Linebackers. Impressive data wriiten on Demario Davis for the Arkansas State Red Wolves. Was present at the Auburn game tonight (9/4/10), and noticed Davis only played Special Teams and the last 2-3 minutes of the game. He made some great tackles in spite of the few minutes on the field. Wonder whats going on here?
I woke up and ooked into the mirror this morning and saw me upside down and tried to follow the image in reverse for a change. .
Hope you can bear with me for once.
