The NCB Crew

Author account for co-written content – don't overthink it.

Founder, lead editor and part-time scribe for NCB. I'm all about that throwback jersey/NBA/90s hip-hop/college football/content industry life. Basically, I'm a poor man's Shea Serrano with Bill Simmons-like responsibilities. Spam my inbox at derek (at) nocoastbias (dot) com.

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 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.

No Coast Bias’s 6th Man, I’ve written some of the pieces you’ve liked and some of the pieces you didn’t like. Sometimes I make sense and others times I’m just rambling on like right here. Follow me on twitter for more of the same @DanielSoden.

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.

Sam is a 2014 graduate of the University of Georgia from Montgomery, Alabama. Growing up in the heart of SEC country, college football was the first sports love, and Alabama and his alma mater are his teams of choice. He is also an avid follower of the NBA, NFL and college basketball.

Bryan Gottula writes about college football for No Coast Bias and proudly claims the title of writing "the stupidest thing (some random person has) ever seen on the Internet."

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.
