Just heard this rumor. Anyone know if it's true? Anyone care?

I work with an osu fan who said bucknuts went to 247 and they raised the price.  I wouldnt be surprised, 247 has really come on the scene as of late.

These sites are almost literally mercenaries who will contract for highest bid. Unless the business side of this stuff interests you, it shouldn't matter

Oh come on that's an outright fucking lie. 

I have access to the wolverine and there is a lot of stuff on there before it ever hits MGoBlog.

MGoBlog's only insider is TomVH.  Everyone else steals info from the premium sites.  Get a fucking clue.

247 is run by the guys that started rivals.  I think they are probably are better evaluators of talent and will probably be a better site IMO.  Still, I'm sticking with mgoblog.  What can I say, I'm a cheap bastard who would rather give money here when I finally earn a buck or two that isn't for necessities.

Bucknuts but they are saying that MICHIGAN keeps getting scrub recruits. I wanted to post there, but would never ever post there.


I kinda had this face when i read their board......

Mixed feelings about rivals.  Balas is kind of a tool.(sorry in advance if you're lurking Chris...but it doesn't make it any less true).  I guess I figured that rivals would probably become marginalized with the popularity of mgoblog and the emergence of Sam Webb(scout) as the face of WTKA.  But much like mlive and dont necissarily like or respect them, but they're another source, and our knowledge would be less complete if they did not exist.

It's strange that these rumors are happening now.  I subscribe to The Wolverine Magazine and earlier this week they were putting out a survey that was, in part, trying to estimate the demand for a combined magzine/Wolverine (rivals web site) package that is not currently offered right now.

But I do prefer 247, because they are not so biased against midwestern recruits. Be that from a higher concentrated effort in the area, or better talent evaluators, I don't know.

Haha I was just asking about this the other day. Its like when you hear a word you haven't heard in forever then it just keeps popping up everywhere you look. But not really.
