About Ben Cornfield
After graduating with a degree in Rugby from the University of Wisconsin, Ben left the country, crashing headlong into South Korea, and then Europe, Saipan, and India.
He was never able to excavate a deep love of sports from his bones. Thus influenced by the dreadlocked wonder that is Ricky Williams, Ben earned his certification as a yoga instructor while in Rishikesh, India.
He met a beautiful girl on his travels, and a Florida alum to boot. Since, he has dedicated his time to his own style of athleticism and to covering the Gators and college basketball as a whole.
He would love to discuss the finer details of the clusterf*** that is the college basketball selection process. Please don't hesitate to leave questions/comments/ criticisms (especially criticisms) either on the pages of his articles or follow him on Twitter: @BenCornfield.
