We've finally gotten around to bringing on board some more writers, and the ones we hooked are two gentlemen I've enjoyed reading for a while. Please say hello to Derrick 'DevilsReject' Hawkins and Andrew Mishler.
Derrick has been reading Stampede Blue since (at least) June of 2009, and his FanPost articles and comments are typically some of the best on our blog. Derrick plans to write articles this summer about former players, taking a "What If?" approach to them.
Side Note: For you old time comic book geeks out there, Marvel's 'What If?" series in the 1980s and 1990s was one of my favorite.
Andrew Mishler comes to us via Ball State University. He is a writer for the Ball State Daily News, covering the MAC conference, Ball State football, and pretty much anything else sports-related in Muncie, IN. Andrew is sort of our intern, and after July 23rd, he will be whisked off to London to cover the Summer Olympics! Between now and then, he'll be writing player evaluation articles on players, analyzing the Colts undrafted rookie free agents signings, and breakdowns of draft prospects of the past (Jerry Hughes, Donald Brown, Fili Moala, etc.).

Please send them a welcome tweet, or comment below. Note that neither one of these guys are the cynical weirdos that Matt Grecco and I are. All in a concerted effort to add more voices to the site, to balance out my insanity with other types of insanity.
