Quentin Michaels

Owner & Host

Q-Man graduated from Southern Illinois University with a bachelor's degree in radio broadcasting. He has always dreamed of becoming a famous talk show host, so he asked himself, "Why wait to get hired by someone when I could start my own show?" He's extremely vocal on his views of sports topics. He is a tall dude standing at 6'6" and is a proud owner of a French bulldog named Bella. Quentin is a die-hard Chicago Cubs fan.

Vance Schmidt


Vance is the newest ticket holder of Section 312. He's a big Bears fan and a sports fan in general. He is a former college football player who knocked people to the ground at middle linebacker.

Matt Gross

Information Technology Manager

Matt is the man behind the curtain of the show. He graduated from Southern Illinois University with a bachelor's degree in Information Systems Technologies. He is actually from the St. Louis area and is a Cardinals and Blues fan. He hates Stan Kroenke and the NFL. Matt met Quentin at SIU in the lobby of the Mae Smith tower through a game of billiards. Matt Gross is also a huge fan of Southern Illinois Saluki athletics, especially basketball and football. When Matt isn't making websites or applications, you can find him bowling, watching sports, or trying not to suck at Rocket League.
