Editor of Bucky's 5th Quarter since September 2012.

After four years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, including two as the sports editor of the nation's largest independent student newspaper, The Badger Herald, I'm furthering my passion for college sports with SB Nation. I've also worked for MLB.com as an associate reporter covering the Washington Nationals in 2012, as well as InsideFootball.com covering the New York Giants during the 2011 Super Bowl season.

My work has been found on the websites of the New York Times, ESPN and MLB.com. You can find me on Twitter @mikefiammetta.
