Covering non-revenue sports is the worst combination of difficult and thankless. You're presented with multiple hurdles. For one thing, information is much harder to come by. If the football team has a new recruit, a quick Google search will find 10 reputable websites (and countless disreputable ones) with more information than you could possibly need. But if you want information about non-revenue athletes, there's really only Calbears.com
Analysis? Well, that can be tough, since the sports are watchable only on occasion. Information about broadcasts and webcasts tend to be difficult to track down and occasionally unclear and/or incorrect. And when you do all that work, most people tend to not notice. Unfortunately, the market for, says, college tennis is a little different from the market for men's basketball.
I know a little bit about this, because I've covered women's basketball, softball and baseball in the past. But women's basketball is easily the most visible non-revenue sport, and I (by sheer dumb luck) covered the baseball team when they went to the World Series and the softball team when they were ranked #1 throughout the season. LEastCoastBears covers EVERY team, no matter how high they may or may not be in the rankings, and does an unbelievable job at it.
With the conclusion of the season for men's golf, men's crew, and men's rugby, the spring season has essentially drawn to a close, which means we won't have current Cal athletes to follow until late August. It also means that now is the perfect time to acknowledge the amazing job LCB has done making sure every Cal athlete gets coverage on CGB. Frankly, I don't know how he does it.
Hail to LEastCoastBears!
