This whole article at ESPN's Wolverine Nation raises another interesting question. Do you think the following columnists and journalists read mgoblog? If so, do they participate at mgoblog under their psuedonym / nom de guerre? Or do they just lurk?
I really don't need or want to know their identity: if they wanted to be known, they would have already chosen to make their presence obvious. (i.e., if they wanted to post as themselves, TomVH is well known, and also Tim Sullivan. It would be easy enough for journalists to have two user names: their own name, and their anonymous name.)
Regardless, mgoblog is a great source of information, and I don't doubt that Rothstein, under some username, is a regular reader here. As such, he would know all the details about "Lloyd Brady," and this would have been an easy and interesting piece to write. I would think that any competent journalist would regularly read what is posted here, and probably gets tips or scoops on various matters of interest to Michigan fans. I've sometimes suspected that an article or news bulletin is put up AFTER they read the news here at mgoblog.
I also sometimes wonder how much athletes and coaches go to blogs. I think it has to be much less often than journalists and fans. However, with Borges' tweaks of Heiko, it makes me wonder if Borges lurks here too. Some of the coaches have to be compulsive football junkies, to the point that they would find a few of the things here interesting.
