Taxing as they often were, the events of those three years turned a football-loving Texan into an addict for college hoops. When The Kansas City Star “promoted” me to cover the Kansas City Chiefs in 2007, I lasted six months before bolting to Yahoo! Sports so I could return to writing about my passion: college basketball.
Four years later, as I begin my job at ESPN.com, the enthusiasm is even stronger. Every year, there are new inspiring stories to tell, new champions to crown and new heroes emerging in the unlikeliest of places.
