Fascinating.

But considering they have been mixing up BU/BC & Eagles/Terriers there was a decent chance half the people in the thread didn't get it.

But thanks for your input.

Not me, the BU Eagles and the BC Terriers.

How I remember it, is that the college is in Boston, and the university is on Chipmunk Hill. Because Eagles like hills, you have the BU Eagles....and obviously because Boston Terriers live in Boston, it's the BC Terriers.

:p:D:D

And I meant that it didn't matter whether or not your posts were or were not actually about BU (which some were, but that's fine as this thread is about the regional BU is in). You are in here posting. More than BU fans are. It just seems like you've posted in this thread more than in the Northeast Regional thread, where your team is playing. You certainly haven't posted as much in the East Regional thread. I haven't checked out the Midwest Regional thread because, well, I only have so much time to waste in the day people!!!! Would you be in this thread as much if BU were not in this regional? Personally, I would say no, but given the nature of the UM-UND rivalry, you might be, though maybe not to the extent you are here now, IMO. I could be wrong. And all your posts are helping increase the post count, which is by far higher than the other three.

Would be very fun to get this thread complete and locked before the puck drops.

Yes, some of my posts have contained the letters B and U next to each other, but it's hard not to have that happen in this type of thread (as you alluded to). I don't think I've been "trolling", so I just don't see what the big deal is. This thread has gotten the most attention and for good reason. That's why I read it. It has nothing to do with BU, so don't flatter yourself. The entertainment value provided by Sioux and Gopher fans is enough reason to read this thread. Again, why does it matter if I'm posting in this thread more than other people and more than in other threads? The only thing that should matter is what I'm posting about, not where I'm posting. Like you, I don't read every thread, but with Minnesota and North Dakota (ok fine, and BU) all in the same regional...it seemed like a good thread to follow. It surely hasn't disappointed. If I say something dumb, call me out on it, but don't get on me for simply posting in this thread.

Considering it is not even located in Boston, it makes it even dumber...er.

Dave, I wish I could say the same in return, but I'm usually left scratching my head after reading a post from you. Keep up the good work! Oh, and...BU.

Careful now! Don't point out that "BC isn't in Boston" too loudly. Those BC guys have ears like fine-tuned seismographs. The slightest tremors of truth set them off, and they'll all be swarming in here in a minute or two. Sssshhhhh!

Its best to refer them like the MLB's Angels. So the preferred name is actually "Boston College University of Newton"

How do we add W Michiganians to this thread? Does W Michigan stand for Wishwewere Michigan?
