Originally from Central Pennsylvania, grew up in Pittsburgh and its suburbs, and will always consider that my home no matter where I live. After writing for two collegiate papers and past stints with Blogcritics and Technorati, I now cover college basketball regularly at Mid-Major Madness, college football less regularly at Hustle Belt, and obsess over baseball fanatically.

FGCU Making A Financial Difference For the A-Sun

+

This is a neat story about the money involved in the NCAA Tournament, and how it effects us little guys. So Florida Gulf Coast (like every NCAA tournament team) brings in roughly $1.41 million for the conference for each tourney game they play, and they have also seen a 700% increase in merchandising revenue compared to this time last year. And yet, like many other schools, they are hoping just to break even this post-season.

Creighton Teaches Cincy How To Dougie

2013 NCAA Tournament Preview: WKU vs Kansas

+

The Hilltoppers streaked their way to the Sun Belt's conference auto-bid into the tournament, but that is about as far as their talent can take them when they draw a team of Kansas' caliber.

2013 NCAA Tournament Preview: MTSU vs Saint Mary's
