Georgia Basketball Blog is Two Years Old
Our team puts in such an amazing effort to provide you with the news and analysis of Georgia Basketball you deserve. “Big Tent, High Quality” is the philosophy and we’re doing that.
I’m enjoying being in the background giving our editor-in-chief, MonkDawg, the additional features he needs and giving him perspective on what is working and what is not from an analytical standpoint. Under MonkDawg’s directive, things are really coming into place rather well and he’s just getting started.
Georgia Basketball Blog is the leading independent publication that covers Georgia Basketball. Being an influencer is a privilege and it is not something that we take lightly. We know that media members do take cues from us, it’s not a well-kept secret. In fact, it’s not much of a secret at all.
Visitors from 131 countries this past year visited Georgia Basketball Blog. We even had a visitor that was reading Georgia Basketball Blog just south of the South Korea/North Korea Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). How about that! Screw you, Kim Jong-un.
Got a friend south of the Fall Line? Tell them about Georgia Basketball Blog. We have more visitors from New York, Chicago, Washington D.C. and Charlotte than all of the cities south of the Fall Line combined. Our young alumni in these popular out-of-state areas have flocked here. Wherever you are Dawgs, chime in here!
The Georgia Basketball Blog has a full offseason to cover all sorts of topics. Yes, the University of Georgia Athletic Association’s activities will be scrutinized and if the overwhelming majority’s view of how things are operating in Butts-Mehre is any indication, we are all empowered to thoroughly investigate the actions of the management and the
ownership big boosters. Currently, polls have the University of Georgia Athletic Association leadership enjoying a worse approval rating than Congress.
Personally, I do not agree with all of the opinions shared and that’s 100% fine by me. (I do e-mail counter-arguments to everyone when applicable.) What I appreciate is that there is a continued tradition of argumentation supported by well-cited facts. (You’d be horrified by how often other publications fail to do this.)
People can read game recaps anywhere. Anyone can easily come across message board and Twitter talking points, but after a while the talking points are just bumper sticker statements and we all eventually ignore it. Georgia Basketball Blog exists to peel back the curtain and think critically. We explain why things are the way they are and bust the misconceptions and blanket statements from different perspectives. It’s wonderful.
Thanks to MemphisDog, DerkDawg, Elevator, Tate Smillie and our editor-in-chief MonkDawg for keeping this going.
