State of the Blog: Last Call

Dylan Burkhardt


We’re entering the final hours of our State of the Blog 2016 fundraiser and want to thank everyone who has helped us reach 54% of our goal as we make one final call for contributions.

We’ve received over 100 contributions and are thankful for each and every one of you who has helped keep this site in motion.

The final day of last year’s drive was one of the best, so we’re hopefully that we can make another late push toward our goal this year. Donations can be made in the sidebar, in the widget in this post, or at our Indiegogo page, and make sure to check out the various UM Hoops swag items that are available as well.

Any donations, big or small, are appreciated and we are looking forward to providing you with the best Michigan basketball coverage around for the remainder of the 2016-17 season.

    This is the only internet site that I give money to. Why? Because I love basketball. I don’t have a ton of basketball knowledge but I have learned an enormous amount here. And because UM Hoops gives me a basketball community far from Ann Arbor, in Tallahassee where I live.

    If you’ve been tracking the discussion in the forum lately, you’ve noted what an uphill battle teams have to fill their stadiums these days, especially at Michigan, which is such a big football school. Yet–despite that–we are lucky to have one of (the?) most sophisticated and beautifully designed basketball blogs on the internet in UMHoops. Night after night, Dylan stays up after moderating the in-game discussions to furnish really well-written post-game analysis. Shortly we get the sophisticated and thrilling Five Most Important Plays. All this is essentially free to anyone who wants to look in–but a small handful of us regulars are benefiting enormously, week in and week out. C’mon everyone–especially if you come here often: throw a little money Dylan’s way! This site is a treasure, and we need to show our support.

    Just made a contribution. I’m a man of limited means but great appreciation for what you do. It’s VERY much appreciated especially by me, a longtime UM fan who lives far from the homeland and relies on you and your team to keep us informed about our favorite team. Keep it up!

    Meant to add – c’mon guys. We’re all benefiting so let’s all contribute and show appreciation to Dylan and crew.

    I’m excited to get my t-shirt but I’d be more excited if I knew what it was going to look like. Dylan, maybe next year it would be good to show the merch’ to entice people into the higher giving levels? Or, am I a dunce and completely overlooked where this is? Thanks for everything you do! Go Blue!

  • Thanks for all the kind words and support guys!
