I'm a 22-year old college student who absolutely loves sports.
A bit about my writing experience:
-I was a B/R Featured Columnist for Boise State football from Jan 2013-Dec 2013
-I own my own sports blog, Around The Corn Sports Blog (www.aroundthecorn.com)
-I have a particular interest in covering college football, college basketball and Major League Baseball but write about several other sports as well
I appreciate anyone who takes the time to read my work either on this site or my blog. The readers truly are what keeps me interested in writing.
I love to hear the thoughts of my readers, so please feel free to leave your feeback about my articles and/or writing in general.

Glad to help! Thanks for writing about the Blackbirds. I live in Brooklyn, so I'll be rooting for them to score an upset.
yeah make sure you have plenty of time to commit to the internship as you need time. as for contacting rich or michael. via email is usually how I talk to them but you could try on here or somewhere else.
Ive been covering college football all season long for b/r and have worked with Rich Thomaselli and Michael Pinto a lot since 2010. I did not go to the event I just watched it one TV is all. But as for how I got to where I am, I went through the b/r writing internship program and then everything came thereafter. So, if you are serious about writing for b/r going through that internship is the best advice I can give you. If it helped me, it can def help you.
You know what you think, I want to read your blog to find out what you think. If you are not going to give your opinion, what is the point of having a blog? People read blogs b/c they want to get someone's take on an issue, b/c the writer is clever/funny, or b/c the writer is a great wordsmith. If you tell me that you watched Andrew Luck throw a pass against VTech were moved to question your sexuality, it is a little funny and tells me how great you think Luck is. A blog is a web log of thoughts. If you aren't going to tell us what you think, then why are you blogging?
I am not an expert and don't want to come off as a know it all, but wanted to give you some constructive criticism. I like the way your blog is laid out a lot. Also like they way you break down teams, but you need to be more definitive. You say you love sharing your opinions, but they are kind of half opinions. Take a stand! Either Stanford had the best defense in the Pac 10 (I think they were statistically) or they didn't. It is not arguable. Andrew Luck isn't quite possibly the best pocket passer in quite some time. Either he is the best pocket passer in the past decade, or he is not. Black or white. I want to read your blog b/c I want to know what you think, not conjecture. State your case, then back it up with facts. People will keep coming back to see what you think if you make viable arguments. No one wants to read a blog that is on the fence. Just my two cents. You write well, but you need to stop playing it safe on your blog.
Thx for becoming a fan. Why does ur blog reference corn? You. A big Nebraska fan?
