Brian Edwards covers football, basketball and the UFC with a special emphasis on SEC football and SEC hoops. He has handicapped for VI since 2002.
Brian is a 1998 graduate of the University of Florida. After working as a sports writer in the Atlanta area for nearly two years, Edwards joined Vegas Insider in March of 2000.
Brian is a regular guest on radio shows all across the country. During football season, he is a weekly guest on the The Paul Howard Show in Las Vegas, The Sharp and Benning Show on 1620 The Zone in Omaha and the Chris Vernon Show in Memphis. Brian also makes regular appearances on Chad Millman's podcast on ESPN.com.
On Dec. 26 of 2009, Brian beat every member of the national media to the news of Urban Meyer's resignation as the head football coach at the University of Florida. Of course, Meyer changed his mind the next day, but VI was the website that provided that stunning news first. Also, Brian alerted bettors to the pending suspensions of 20 FSU football players prior to the Music City Bowl in '07, suggesting that gamblers immediately play Kentucky -1 because the line was going to be heavily adjusted. As it turned out, Brian advised VI readers to then come back with FSU +9 (the adjusted number) so when the 'Cats won by seven, the perfect 'middle' gave gamblers multiple winners.
Brian hosted VI's radio show, The Power Hours, on Thursday nights from 2005-2012.
Brian is a life-long fan of the Florida Gators, Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Hawks and the Atlanta Falcons.
Brian is also a big fan of Steve Spurrier, Charles Barkley, the Van Gundys, Bill Raftery, Hannah Storm and Erin Andrews. On the flip side, Brian is not a big fan of Roger Clemens, Alex Rodriguez, Kobe Bryant, Bobby Bowden and all Dookies including Coach K.
