Patrick Johnston is a Newsdesk Contributor for SB Nation's East regional sites. He is also a co-manager of SB Nation's Big East blog, Big East Coast Bias and a contributor to Yahoo! Sports. He started writing the blog One-Handed Grab in 2009 following requests from a professor and a fellow graduate student at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa after they talked way more about football than political science. In 2010, he created the Positive Impact Factor, which includes rushing statistics, as an alternative to the Passer Rating. Before beginning to write about sports, he picked up a Bachelor's degree (and a necessary dose of Tiger athletics) from LSU and a Master's degree from UH Manoa (both degrees in political science). Miscellany: published a novel, has some of a dissertation on Lincoln written, applied for the New Mexico State job that went to DeWayne Walker.
