In today’s internet age, there’s no lack of online coverage about your school. From each program’s official website, to newspapers, to TV stations, to other blogs online, odds are you have multiple stories to read about every game your team plays.
But how much of that coverage dares to be critical? When’s the last time they looked past the numbers on the stat sheet?
My goal is to shine a unique light on the Ohio Valley Conference; one that’s intelligent, analytical, backed by facts, while remaining relevant to the changing trends in the world of sports coverage.
I ultimately serve fans, not the coaches or schools. As a result, my goal is to provide sharp commentary, without being disparaging to the institutions, or it’s members. Above all — I seek to be fair, to praise the good as well as denote the bad, and how it can be improved.
I don’t seek to replace the sources of information that exist about the conference — I don’t do a lot of “game stories.” Rather, I’m looking supplement those kinds of stories, with views, statistics, and analysis those other sites don’t report. I want to take the vast amount of information available, including advanced metrics, video, and social media, and bring attention to what’s important.
I also have a full-time career in media, currently serving as an Executive Producer at WKBW-TV in Buffalo, New York. This is a hobby I enjoy on the side, but I bring to it the same experience and professionalism I bring to my “9-to-5.” (Which is very much not 9-to-5)
Finally, this isn’t a business venture. I’m not here trying to maximize profits, or provide sensational journalism for the sole purpose of site clicks. While I may eventually provide light advertising to offset the costs of running a website, I don’t measure success solely by page views.
I hope you enjoy the site I’ve created. If not, we ask that you scroll to the “contact us” section at the bottom of this page, and let us know what you would like to see.
