About

Media resume: Live Radio interview on "Wake Up Call with Hollaway and Lundun" 1120 KPNW in Eugene, Oregon on Friday June 11th, 2010 regarding NCAA conference realignment and the Pac-10 expansion.

I am a lifelong Denver Broncos fan that grew up idolizing John Elway. My love for the Broncos has turned into a greater fascination of NFL football, the business, the teams, the draft (I am a HUGE draft junkie), and in turn college football in general. I am also very proud of the fact that my beautiful wife, Deserae, had the honor to sing the national anthem at the ground-breaking ceremony for the new Invesco Field at Mile High Stadium in 1999.

I have followed my home-state Colorado Buffaloes since the tragic and magical years of 1989 and 1990. I love to follow the NCAA teams, recruiting, conferences, and comment on the BCS system.

I have been a Colorado Avalanche fan since they arrived and am an inline hockey player. I play fantasy football and hockey, and commish a great keeper league in both. I came on here to find better research and educated opinions than you can find on message boards.

Aside from football and hockey, the only other sport I follow is MMA, and I watch every fight that I can (UFC, Strikeforce, WEC, Bellator, and sometimes Dream).

I had the honor of throwing out the first pitch at a Colorado Springs SkySox (AAA) game in 2005. Yes, I one-hopped it, and yes I was embarrassed.

    hey scott, I am of course writing the Big 12 angles and in doing so I had to consider the fall of the SWC. I have long maintained that NFL killzones made teh SWC a deadman walking and I just came accross two articles from the time that really speak to that and are great insightful --- and quoteable -- reads that I thought I'd pass on.

    http://books.google.com/books?id=IiwEAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA60&lpg=PA60&dq=southwest+conference+average+attendance+by+year&source=bl&ots=NBnHSDmy3u&sig=iWFfTmQLzk1FZ40y74041Q3vEHA&hl=en&ei=oRRcTv_KDq-KsAKiuPkM&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=10&ved=0CFkQ6AEwCQ#v=onepage&q=southwest%20conference%20average%20attendance%20by%20year&f=false

    page 58 onward. "the decline of the SWC"


    http://books.google.com/books?id=WC4EAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA5&lpg=PA5&dq=southwest+conference+average+attendance+by+year&source=bl&ots=HfsAZOEbfh&sig=zl86uzPvasRYM58CsfhK3z0_tKE&hl=en&ei=oRRcTv_KDq-KsAKiuPkM&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=8&ved=0CFAQ6AEwBw#v=onepage&q=southwest%20conference%20average%20attendance%20by%20year&f=false

    page 5 onward - "empty seats"

    also this one

    The three do a heck of a job in explaining what happened to the SWC, why UT does what they do and how they think, and why getting back in bed with TCU may not happen.

    Hope things are good for you.
