OT - Old PennStateHoops.com links


#1

Anyone have any of the old PennStateHoops.com URLs? I was curious about how long I have been doing this, and I thought I would look on archive.org to see how far back we go. I used to call it the Penn State Basketball Recruiting Digest and it was probably on home.maine.rr.com. Also, there was a forum as far back as Joe Crispin’s freshman year, 1997-98. I think that URL had “ubb” in it somewhere, but I could be wrong.

Are you going to get all nostalgic on us Tim? :slight_smile:

The Wayback Machine takes you (at least the homepage) back to 10/1/99. Not sure about old boards you might have used before that, but that’s a good start to see where you started with the homepage.

I am pretty sure I was blogging years before this one: http://web.archive.org/web/19990223213235/http://home.maine.rr.com/tjb/psuhoops/

ahhhh…yes, who can forget the Blanchard Watch? sitting on the edge of our collective seats for every rumored detail…psssttt… didja hear they took LaVell to Hershey so he could observe an operation?

Tim…I think you should revisit this Special Report from that old site.

PENN STATE Student-Athlete Admissions

An occasional feature type article/post on PSU hoops might be of interest to your target audience.

Apparently Glee Club features would not.

We started on *P around 1992 or 1993. I can’t remember when you started your site, but 1996 or 1997 seems to stick in my mind for some reason.

I do remember www.grassy.com as one of the earlier forums.
