I was originally born in London, England, but grew up a Minnesota Gopher and Vikings fan in a suburb of Minneapolis, MN. I believe this is just about the severest form of suffering God can inflict upon a human. I attended college at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO, receiving a BA in Speech Communication in 1991. After a few years as an account manager for advertising agencies in Minneapolis, I then attended graduate school at the University of Missouri before transferring to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I received a Master's in Journalism. Currently, I am a writer and account manager for a Denver-based advertising agency, which allows me to religiously follow my favorite team - the Colorado State Rams.
INTRODUCING SCOTT PEAD...
Favorite Team: BYU
Most Hated Team: I hate any school that routinely schedules seven or eight home games (e.g. Nebraska, Kansas State, Ohio State). I also hate elitists and the BCS.
Degrees: BA from Brown University, 1995
Profession: Software Hacker
Writing Experience: I've worked for years on an unfinished and amateurish novel about growing up in suburban America during and after the Cold War.
I'm a Utah native, and I was raised on BYU football in the 70's and 80's. Those were the program's halcyon days. Going to the games with my father and uncles was a coming-of-age experience of sorts, and I've remained a fan ever since.
College Football has all the complexity of any academic field - only on steroids..err..(cough)...well, with more physicality - and every year is a new one - replete with new players, new schemes, and great expectations, all layered on top of a rich tradition and pageantry unaparalleled anywhere else in American sport.
I've signed up to write for SouthernCollegeSports.com because the Mountain West Conference is incredibly competitive and very fun to follow. It's a story that should be told. One week your team is in the desert, the next week, they're just off the beach, and the next, they're fighting for their lives in a snowstorm in the mountains. This league is fun to watch. If you don't follow it, you should. It's our goal to make SouthernCollegeSports.com your top destination for following college football. Here's to a great 2004 season.
