I will graduate in 2014 from Rutgers University-New Brunswick with a Bachelor's degree in Journalism and Media Studies. I mainly write about college football for Bleacher Report. I started writing for Bleacher Report in May 2012, when I began the Bleacher Report Summer Sports Writing Internship. I have passionately followed sports since I was three years old. As far as organized sports go, I played tee-ball and town league soccer for a few years in elementary school. I was also a coxswain on my high school crew team for three years.

As always, thanks for reading, and you can follow me on Twitter at @MCarroll_Philly.

    Michael Baird just proved that it doesn't take much, either, to voice an He'll never figure out 'logic' with his biases. Oh well, eh ?

    Your system's o.k. - just gave me an opportunity to plug some "less noticeable, but (possibly) equally important" games. If they're not 'marquee matchups' at this point, eventually someone might wish that they had heard or thought about checkin' them out.

    Michael,you think Alabama will lose this year and Ole Miss just might be the team that does it? You got to be kidding me. I bet your one of the writters that thinks Boise State should be in the National Championship game every year too regardless of their schedule strength. I cant follow the logic of people like you. It just proves to me that it dont take much to land a job as a sports writter lol.

    please write an article bringing up the issue of Connor Shaws speed in the new EA NCAA football. His speed in the 2012 version was 94/81. (acceleration and speed) In the 2013 version it is 78/71. WHAT Happened?! With Connor's running game being such a huge part of our offense this year how can any South Carolina fan expect to play a anywhere close to accurate version of their team in this years game. Maybe it can be fixed if it is brought to attention.

    My neighbor and I just loved Ray Bourque and when he went to Colorado, we just followed him and I've loved them ever since. Primed for a great year next season!
