I'm a student at the University of Texas at Arlington who breathes college football. I've been a TCU fan since birth and will forever be a Horned Frog. My father got his PhD at TCU as did my Step-Mother and I went to Alice Carlson Applied Learning Center for elementary school, literally right across the street from Amon G. Carter Stadium (where TCU plays).
I hope you enjoy this.
Just wanted to say congrats on the big win. ha. helluva game. Best of luck next season.
Haha don't let the intimidation stop you. I have had nothing but good responses from people. I just finished up my second semester at BSU. I have been taking my time as I already have a 17 month old son and we are expecting a daughter in Feb. So it is hard to balance spending time with family and earning money to support them and a full load at school. My son is a stud though and he already loves watching the Broncos with me. What year are you? What are you studying?
Dylan, I appreciate your comments and am always pleased to have a new fan. haha. It is also nice to find another student here on b/r. It seems that most of the writers here are 30+ yr old guys, and I often feel a little bit intimidated and underqualified. After looking at your page here, it is such a relief to see someone else in our generation that lives and breathes sport. I look forward to reading some of your work here on b/r.
"See" you Tuesday.
You dfinintely have the right attitude. Good writing requires research and masive rewriting. I used to watch my mother rewrite articles dozens of times. That was in the day of typewriters. She was, however, published in a couple dozen publications.
It appears to be a little over two years old. This site has begun growing much faster lately. I was member 47,213 and have only been here a couple months. You are 64,029. http://bleacherreport.com/users/19-Zander-Freund is one of the founders.
Because journalism involves more than just writing, it also involves editors there are people here who perform each role. You will most likely be pleased (frustrated?) with the results of whoever chooses to edit your work. If you see a need to edit you own work either before or after a regular editor as you may do so at any time.
Thanks for the kind words Dylan. I worked more ours on that article than I would like to admit. It was excessively long but doing the topic justice resulted in the length it was.
You will find much acceptance among us bleacher creatures. I am looking forward to your first article and can tell from you comments that you are going to find success Here. There are many jerks that like to write for much the same reason as people who love the sound of their own voices. Those people don't find the negative energy they seem to need to feel fulfilled and generally wander off.
Just like you I stumbled onto this place. I enjoy it, the idea behind it and the people who are here regularly. Read, write and give people enough leeway to accept their loyalties are different than yours are.
Thanks for the Favorite article pcik Dylan.
I hope you find b/r to be as positive as I have. Welcome abord.
