Welcome to BF.
Any bike will get you started.
Then you learn more what your needs are.

Welcome to the site. Theres so much info here your head will blow up.

Find an OG who knows how to turn wrenches on bicycles and have him teach you how to do it. It will save you money and riding a well tuned bike is infinitely better than an untuned bike.

Have fuhn!

Welcome to the forums. For me, I started running since I don't have time to hit the saddle.

Hey gmoney, you found a great forum to read and learn from. Just remember to search before you ask! Some folks will remind you of that if you post a repititious question. All kidding aside, this is a great forum, welcome.
I race on a collegiate team, too. Got to say go Lindsey Wilson College blue raiders. We got 4th in MTB nats and 3rd in XC nats. Maybe we'll cross paths on the road, cheers
