Blogging the NCAA Tournament
Illini Wonk is not alone in covering the Illinois Fighting Illini basketball team in the blogosphere and the NCAA Tournament has given a boost to that coverage. Previously, Illini Wonk brought you blogger predictions
on Illinois in the tournament and now we'll look at some of their coverage of the games.
First, ACC Basketblog
has the carnival of hoopsters
, which lists the blogs that cover the 65 teams in the Big Dance. Yours truly is listed as the best overall coverage of the Fighting Illini.
Also listed in the carnival is illinigirl
whose Notes from the RCA Dome
is a great first-hand account of the two Illinois wins. Illinigirl. What a great name! I see some mutual linking in our future! (In fact, you can find my permanent link to illinigirl at the right).
While you're cruising the blogosphere, you'd be missing out on a lot if you don't get to big ten wonk
. Wonk is noticably pleased by the three Big Ten teams in the Sweet 16, which ties with the ACC for the lead. Lots of Illini coverage here.
Illini Wonk has given you the tip of the iceberg on the coach of the Illini's next opponent, but if you're looking for more, surf over to jotsheet
