02/10/2011 - 4:26pm 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?

07/26/2010 - 2:59pm billfer was one the best. sad

billfer was one the best. sad to see him go.

06/25/2010 - 3:22pm Because he is ready to move

Because he is ready to move on.

06/10/2010 - 12:32am It's over 20

It's over 20 scholarships..,0,7548894.story

06/08/2010 - 10:40pm So this is where Demar Dorsey is earning his diploma from...


04/22/2010 - 9:07pm It sucks...

I have not been impressed with it at all...

04/16/2010 - 8:55pm 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.

03/03/2010 - 5:16pm 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.

02/19/2010 - 5:19pm 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.”

02/01/2010 - 11:26am WWW is very close to the Family

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'.

01/15/2010 - 1:29pm The number of Eddie Hightower

The number of Eddie Hightower pictures in the photo gallery is great. Someone should send the man a link.

10/26/2009 - 8:36pm 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.

10/11/2009 - 12:21am Same with Tate...

Same with Tate...

07/17/2009 - 11:14am Yes it should...

They are good people over there and worth checking out.

07/09/2009 - 7:34pm Maybe not...…

He very well could still decommit but he told Scout's Evan Daniels otherwise.

06/17/2009 - 4:00pm 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.

06/17/2009 - 3:49pm 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.

06/15/2009 - 10:50am 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.

06/02/2009 - 11:25pm 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.

04/07/2009 - 3:24pm 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.

02/23/2009 - 6:24pm Radio

Nice job on the radio Brian. Although I figured your comments about the "Threet meeting" would stir up some drama.

02/23/2009 - 2:32pm He's recruiting.

He's recruiting.

02/21/2009 - 5:03pm 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.

02/10/2009 - 1:46pm 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.

02/10/2009 - 1:36pm 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.
