Michael Arnold was a player at the University of Chicago and Columbia University. He frequently goes by "marnold" or variants thereof like "marhola" (originated by Kevin Olmstead and his illegible handwriting). He was on championship winning teams at ACF Nationals 2009, ICT 2010, and CULT.


Michael has been a member of some tournament-winning teams.

In 2006-2007, Michael was part of an Andrew Yaphe-led team at ELVIS.

In 2007-2008, he was on the team that won ACF Fall in 2007. He won the award for top Div II scorer at 2008 ACF Nationals.

In the 2008-2009 season, he was part of Chicago A's championship team at 2009 ACF Nationals as well as regular season victories at ACF Winter, Penn Bowl, TIT, and Cardinal Classic.

After matriculating to Columbia Law School, Michael was the top scorer at the 2011 Region 2 SCT, leading Columbia to what some think is the school's first ever academic tournament victory. At 2012 ACF Nationals, Columbia finished T-10th, their best finish ever.
