My name is Rob Dauster. For more than a decade, I’ve covered college basketball and the NBA draft, for the likes of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports. I’ve been nominated for a number of writing awards; I even won one. I’ve worked on TV. I’ve recorded one of the most popular podcasts in the college basketball space.

And today, I’m unemployed.

If you’re here, you probably know that story. If you don’t, you can read about it here.

Like any breakup, I’m not really sure what’s next. I don’t know what I’m going to do long-term. But I don’t need a long-term answer in the moment. I just need something for the right now.

And for the next three months, this is it.

Welcome to The Rebound.

What is The Rebound?

Exactly what it looks like: A chance for you to read

Because it will be the only way for you to read any of the college basketball content that I create leading up to the start of what I hope will be a college basketball season.

What will that content look like?

Why should you subscribe?

If you’re here, you’ve gotten a taste of what I write and the content I create in the past.

If you would like that in the future, you’ll need to subscribe.

Twitter is a cesspool.

I use it, because I need it to be able to do my job.

But I hate it.

One goal of this project is to build a community where we can enjoy watching college hoops together, embracing the positivity and leaving the nonsense of social media behind.
