tons of versions, very few bad ones.:thumb: Some of the bands I was in back in the 70s maybe.:)

(Although I have to add, there's a number of versions listed here I've never heard and a few I'm afraid to listen to, but great song all in all. And my second fave Son House song after Death Letter Blues. That one still gives me shivers after hundreds of listens, but mikethedeathletter didn't seem like a very good board name.)


John Mellencamp does great versions of both "John The Revelator" and "Death Letter" on his album 'Trouble No More.'

Insider article but pic of Groce, Smart and Cooley: Shaka Smart, John Groce and Ed Cooley are using hard work -- and increased on-court success -- to build surprise recruiting powers.

Also, 3 star point guard --Eli Brooks - with 100%CB to Villanova (only 3 predictions though)and an offer from them and Ohio St among others picked Michigan last night.

A 3*/NR. Michigan just needed a backup guy to Simpson. Not going to argue with Beilein though.

I think we've moved on from Christian Negron but he's been putting up some pretty good numbers in the FIBA Americas Tournament. Lot better than his AAU stats.

Larkin Basketball ‏@LarkinBBall 19h19 hours ago Great effort by Christian Negron in PR's loss to the loaded 18u USA team. 23 pts, 13 rebs, 3 ast, 1 steal. Game high in points and rebounds.

He's going to be an excellent player somewhere as a junior and senior. I hope it's not at Iowa

Xavier Tillman, PF, who is the Judge's homie, has his final four as MSU, Marquette, Purdue, & Florida. Interestingly, 2 of those (Purdue/Marq) are on Theo John's final 6.

Second Evaluation Period: Breakout Performers

The clear breakout performer at the NY2LA Summer Jam was 6-foot-11 Australian Jacob Epperson.

Epperson began to gain steam among college coaches in Indianapolis during the first evaluation period playing with AUSA Platinum. But in Milwaukee at the Summer Jam, coaches showed up in full force, and based on the amount of scholarship offers he reeled in they were clearly impressed.

Epperson obviously has good size for the position, but he’s also equipped with good length. He’s mobile, moves his feet well and runs rim to rim. Athletically, he’s average, but he his length and timing allow him to get to shots. In one of our two viewings, Epperson blocked a half dozen shots

Although from Australia, Epperson is expected to finish up his high school career at La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere.

Very interesting. Think Tilmon will have some pull? Epperson's game dovetails nicely with Tilmon's.

It would be nice if he just got the whole darn team. There has been quite a bit of discussion abour tilmon joining Goodwin at althoff. Recently read on a high school board that a respected poster says that he did indeed enroll at althoff and that lalu would not release his transcript. Therefore forcing him back to lalu.

Everything. I know who Kevin Pittsnogle is because of Beilein.

The list of totally off the radar recruits he's made into significant contributors is a long one. I'm pretty sure Zack Novak is still the all time leader in minutes played for the program's history.

That's silly.

Have no idea if that's true. That said, whenever institutions and adults are fighting over a kid, not putting the kid's desire first, it's pathetic. 'Course, that all changes very soon.

But to the matter at hand, Tilmon at LaLu could pay big dividends.

Tilmon said himself that he didnt go to Althoff because there was a chance he wouldnt be eligible and didnt want to miss any time. Nothing about any transcript stuff.
