Bryan M. Vance

Editor-In-Chief/MACtion expert

I'm the supreme leader 'round these parts. (That's editor-in-chief if you want to get technical.) I also serve as a senior editor over at Underdog Dynasty, the general Group of 5 college football blog, and as the SB Nation Group of 5 conference manager.

A two-time graduate of THE Ohio University, I once drank beers with a guy names Thunder. I'm also actively seeking full-time employment, or a role as a walker on "The Walking Dead". I'm not picky.

Yes, I'd love to talk #MACtion on your show, email me.

Follow me on Twitter, @BryanMVance. I'd be happy to tell you why the Ohio Bobcats are better than (insert school here).
