Eric Crawford digs Card Chronicle

During your live chat last Thurs, you mentioned that you occasionally scan blogs. How much credit do people like Jurich and Klein give to blogs and how much time do you think players and coaches spend reading them? I thought it was interesting K.Klein recently called out a blog for reporting false info while simultaneously giving credit to the blogisphere’s affect on his program’s public perception. Thoughts?

Eric Crawford:
I know most of the bloggers who do any kind of regular work on U of L or UK. Not all of them, but probably most. I look at some more than others. Mike Rutherford does a great job on U of L, in particular.

I think people in college sports are trying to figure out how to proceed with the blogosphere. U of L has been pretty progressive in giving blogs credentials where possible. I think they have done that hoping that the bloggers would take that as a responsibility to follow some basic rules of journalism.

I think it’s all a process in evolution. I read a lot of blogs — more national than local. I have a lot of respect for people who do it well.

The respect is mutual…actually I’m almost positive I have far more respect for Eric than he does for me. Dude can write and on top of that he works very hard.
