Columnist

Though I'm currently a resident of eastern Washington state, I've counted myself as a Cowboys fan since I first saw Emmitt Smith run over a would-be tackler and a Rangers fan since my father first took me to see Nolan Ryan in person. I am a huge follower of objective research in sports, the advancement of the NFL passing game, college basketball and an unapologetic but understanding minority fan of college football bowl games (though not the current BCS). Some of my writing in the past includes beat writing for the Daily Evergreen in Pullman, Washington, and link herding for SB Nation's own Beyond the Boxscore.
