The website’s publisher, Kelly Quinlin, has covered college athletics since 2005, serving as the beat writer for the Georgia Rivals affiliate UGASports.com (2005-07) before becoming the sports editor for the Marrietta Daily Journal (2007-09) and later moving back to Rivals where he runs the Georgia Tech, Cincinnati, South Florida, Mississippi State and Alabama sites. Tide Illustrated’s managing editor, Tony Tsoukalas, is a previous APSE award-winner who has been covering Alabama since 2016.
