Brian likes all sports to a varying degree that ranges from mild interest to intense obsession. He primarily writes about college football, the NBA, and pop culture, but will also write about other, more obscure things when his superiors allow it. He also doesn't care in the slightest for Bruce Springsteen, which separates him from 98% of all other sports writers.

I joined NCB in May of 2014. My major interests/contribution points are the NFL, College Football, College Basketball, Hip Hop Music, and let's just call it miscellaneous.

As a tall human, Alex Schubauer was destined to love basketball. He believes the NBA is the greatest sports league in the world, so that's what he writes about. He also enjoys The X-Files, the National Treasure movies, blink-182 and Kanye West.

I was born and raised in St. Louis, so yeah, of course I love the Cardinals, Nelly, and Jon Hamm. But you can find me here writing about the NBA, soccer, pop culture, and more. Apologies in advance for all the Country Grammar references.

Max is a dreaded Coastie, growing up rooting for the Red Sox, Patriots, and Bruins while on a beach in Rhode Island. He's also a Cavs fan, but that's harder to explain. If you can think of a movie that more perfectly captures the spirit of America than Top Gun, he'd like to hear from you.
