Thanks for the link, support and donations guys.

|5 years 49 weeks ago||Both very different players, both will play||
Brundidge is a short-ish powerful two guard that thrives going to the hoop. Video:
Burke is more of a true point guard that has great three poiint range. Video:

Anyone have a link to a good stream?

billfer was one the best. sad to see him go.
|6 years 30 weeks ago||Because he is ready to move||
Because he is ready to move on.
|6 years 32 weeks ago||It's over 20||
It's over 20 scholarships..
|6 years 32 weeks ago||So this is where Demar Dorsey is earning his diploma from...||
|6 years 39 weeks ago||It sucks...||
I have not been impressed with it at all...
|6 years 40 weeks ago||Benzing was a question short||
Benzing was a question short on his SAT, that's why he never made it to Ann Arbor. He might have had to serve some sort of suspension for amateurism but that had never been decided b/c he didn't make it.
|6 years 46 weeks ago||He doesn't have offers from||
He doesn't have offers from Syracuse, Tennessee, and Oklahoma. I am not buying that right now.
He's a plan-B type guy for Michigan. Not sure if he'd get an offer.
|6 years 48 weeks ago||Benzing was an academic issue...||
A suspension, probably a year, might have come down if he had qualified and gotten into school.
Here's a recent quote actually from Beilein about Benzing
(Laughs) “It’s huge. Hopefully those were going to be two very good players for us at this time, with their size. We’re probably one SAT question away and an injury away from having that type of presence.”

Including kids on Michigan's roster, especially Peedi.
That connection has been known for sometime and it is what it is. The biggest time it has really come up was during Malik Hairston's recruitment. As you know, Hairston went to Oregon... Essentially 'Nike U'.
|7 years 1 week ago||The number of Eddie Hightower||
The number of Eddie Hightower pictures in the photo gallery is great. Someone should send the man a link.
|7 years 12 weeks ago||Pretty sure those Technorati articles||
(Technorati is the original source I think) are based on a certain group of their top 100 bloggers or something like this. If you link over to the Technorati site there are 4-5 parts that include more information about the study I think.

Same with Tate...
|7 years 27 weeks ago||Yes it should...||
They are good people over there and worth checking out.
|7 years 28 weeks ago||Maybe not...||
He very well could still decommit but he told Scout's Evan Daniels otherwise.
|7 years 31 weeks ago||Great point in your second||
Great point in your second paragraph. Blogging is a lot of hard work. If you start out with the illusion that you will "make it big", you are going to quit in month.
You have to truly enjoy doing it, the money that you make isn't going to really change that.
|7 years 31 weeks ago||The behind the scenes things||
The behind the scenes things are all good to know, and they are definitely true and important. But the bottom line is that you need to produce content people want to read. Everything else will eventually take care of itself.
Something that I saw mentioned in the last BWB thread was that bloggers have a passion and love for their topic that most reporters don't. This is a differentiator between good blogs and bad blogs. It is also what can make blogs more appealing to the consumer/reader, but at the same time makes them much more dangerous than newspapers. I think somewhere there is a balance between the proper amount of fandom/passion and just the facts.
There has definitely been plenty of saturation in the market as well but I think there are still opportunities out there. Unique and quality content is key, if you write about the same thing the same way as everyone else, there is no value added.
"Making it big" and getting picked up by ESPN or something like that is going to take an extremely talented and lucky person. Just like any other field you are going to have to catch your breaks.
I'm rambling, but I absolutely love this topic. Great post Brian.
|7 years 32 weeks ago||Good stuff Brian||
You probably should have been on a panel. For a blogger that didn't make it, your recap is appreciated and informative.
I really like the point you make about a team blog vs. a general blog. The difference is so big that it's hard to even compare.
|7 years 33 weeks ago||I Love It||
Call it brutal or whatever... With Duke out, we needed another game like this.
Gotta play the best teams... A road game against a truly elite top 5 team is really a no lose situation when it comes to the RPI as well.
|7 years 41 weeks ago||NBA Draft||
Manny could enter his name and then withdraw as well. It has nothing to do with age and everything to do with hiring an agent. Still, there's nothing to worry about here.
|7 years 47 weeks ago||Radio||
Nice job on the radio Brian. Although I figured your comments about the "Threet meeting" would stir up some drama.
|7 years 47 weeks ago||He's recruiting.||
|7 years 48 weeks ago||GT will get in at 8-10 in||
GT will get in at 8-10 in conference unless they lose like the first round of the Big East tourney.
|7 years 49 weeks ago||Fair point... I did say||
Fair point... I did say "reportedly let him have a piece of his mind" and the fact that he got dragged into the whole thing still let him learn first hand about how heated the rivalry can get.
|7 years 49 weeks ago||The point I was more of less||
The point I was more of less trying to make was how blown out of proportion the whole thing got. It ended up on the radio, started some beef between reporters, and I believe even coaches got involved. That kind of thing doesn't happen after every recruiting battle.
