Where is Snipe?

I need his input before I take any of this conference re-alignment seriously!

Re: Where is Snipe?

He was apparently given a little vacation from this board. Don't know if it is over or not, but I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't come back either way. But, I'd like his take on this re-alignment stuff, as well.

Snipe is still at a reflection session with a cheap bottle of rum, first along the wall when the revolution comes!

On another board or two, Snipe started off saying that he thought the BE7 should add only Xavier. He later said that a 9-team Conference would be best playing a 16-game Conference H/A schedule. He later agreed that a 10-team Conference would be acceptable if the H/A concept were carried over (for an 18-team Conference schedule).

He said that Butler should join X to make 9, but he never did say whom he preferred as #10. If fact, he merely said "Pick one."

I just want the team I support to be in a stronger conference. I'd prefer it to be a stronger A-10! To me that would mean every member would have at least 2 trips to the NCAA Tourney and 5 winning seasons during each 10-year cycle. It would also be great for every program to seriously challenge for a league title (either regular season or Tourney) at least once during that same period of time.

Snipe's banishment was a sign of the A10 apocalypse.

LOVE Snipe! If and when this re-alignment crap does come to fruition, I am going to miss Snipe most of all! Xavier has always been my number two team and it's because of Snipe!

Snipe is no longer on vacation. He is more than welcome to post his drunk ramblings on conference realignment if he would like.

Hmmm. Are you trying to infer that the reason Snipe has been gone so long is because he's recovering from a sex change operation?

Now wouldn't that make his ramblings interesting.

I suspect if X pulls out another miracle tonite, he will re-appear for another drunken, expletive filled Flagship rant and be re-banned until March Madness.

Re: Where is Snipe?

I almost forgot about Snipe, he has been standing in the corner for awhile now.

I suspect if X pulls what I think would be a HUGE upset, you might see a few Xavier posters find their way to a keyboard after a couple of cocktails.

I'd imagine Snipe took his ball and went home. Doubt you'll be seeing him here so long as the Gestapo is in charge.

Snipe comes and goes when he pleases. And he always comes back, because we are one of the most liberal boards around when it comes to language and tolerance. Think about that when you want to loosely and blithely throw around morally offensive and reprehensible terms such as "Gestapo" when you refer to something as commonplace as bulletin board moderators.
