So last night before I turned in I read a post with "insider" information.
IIRC, it detailed:
-- Who was taking snaps with first and second teams
-- Who was being benched
-- Who was fighting in practice
-- Who was kicked off the team (BooBoo)
I found the post informative. More, I would say, this is part of the reason I read the blog. To get information I can't get elsewhere. HOwever, the comments to the OP went all over the place, with offense being given and taken, and people freaking out at news they didn't like to hear. Whatever.
Apparently the post has been removed. Possible reasons:
-- The inside source freaked that the info had been posted.
-- The OP was cheesed off at being questioned by guys.
-- The mods felt the post crossed some line.
1) I'd like some moderator to comment on why the post was removed, and what is the threshold causing posts to be removed.
2) We have mocked ND & MSU & OSU boards for removing posts: isn't this the same thing?
3) Isn't this kind of stuff why we read the blog anyway? I get tired of endless speculation ("How many games will we win? Who will be the new AD? Has the NCAA found any real allegations that will stick?")
My favorite posts:
Analysis (cf Sharik, misopogen, UFR, Brian.)
Commentary (Brian, sometimes links to other blogs)
Recruiting (FNL, Tom V)
Inside Info (various folks close to the AD, Admin, or on the sideline at practice, or parents, or on the team.)
Links (Angelique, Mlive, ESPN, local papers on their hs recruits)
Is the blog readership now so large that all inside info will now be censored and removed? I really hope not. Obviously, I can wait until Sat. afternoons, and find out what is going on. But it has been wonderful to have a window to what happens behind the scenes. I would hate for that to dry up.
