Hello! I write about college football for SB Nation and Football Outsiders. Formerly I was founding editor of Yahoo! Sports' college football blog, 'Dr. Saturday, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the BCS.' I've also written full-time for CBS Sports and contributed to numerous other publications, including The Baffler. Follow me on Twitter: @MattRHinton. I do not love the BCS.
