A Quick Bit About TTT
Welcome to To The Tin, a basketball-based web site written by Eric Van Dril and Elliott Pohnl. The goal of TTT is to provide a unique view about the NBA, College Basketball without being boring. It sounds easy, but it’s not. That’s why we are planning to broaden our coverage to all sports in the months ahead.

Elliott Pohnl – Hails from the Iowa City, Iowa area and finished college at the University of Iowa in December 2009 with a degree in English and currently covers college sports for Rotowire.com. Elliott moved to Silicon Valley in California in August of ’08 to follow his love interest and has returned to settle down and begin the difficult quest of looking for a full-time, decently paying writing job. He hopes to land a high-paying job as a fantasy expert someday. Elliott enjoys playing basketball, creative writing, relaxing with friends, and eating spaghetti.
Eric and Elliott met during college through mutual friends and instantly formed a strong bond. Okay, not so much. But we got along and shared a common interest in writing and sports. We began talking about starting a website in fall 2008 and decided that we wanted to start a site about the NBA. We later decided to add College Basketball to our site, because there is nothing better than March Madness. And later still, we decided to broaden our scope in an effort to make things more interesting.
