In Response to Re: Reggie Jackson Declares for NBA Draft
[QUOTE]I can't even muster the energy to respond to LP at this point. His attendence argument says it all. He claims it dropped, he was shown for a fact that is didn't, and I will bet any amount of money he'll ignore that and start another thread claiming the "gang of two" are responsible for the Japan crisis. I will give you one piece of credit LP, you are the single most annoying person I've never actually met. Well done....

Take heart, momort. LP has destroyed whatever credibility he might have had (if he ever had it) a long time ago. His recent post is a case in point.
He was the one who brought up the attendance. You destroyed his argument by showing the official attendance figures for this year compared to last.
He was the one who cited BC's alumni giving rate as a sign that "no one cares for the place." A lot of us, including myself, destroyed his argument by showing the official alumni giving rates of other schools - facts which showed that BC was right in the middle of the Top 50 alumni giving rates and was ahead of or virtually the same as many other schools - including Georgetown, GT, et al.
He was the one who cited that "BE BB was thriving" compared to the ACC by citing how many BE teams were in the Top 25 compared to the ACC. I agreed with his comment and cited HIS logic to support ACC FB supremacy over the BE. After all, this past year FOUR ACC teams finished in the Top 25 compared to ZERO teams from the Big East. Now, of course, he forgets he ever made such an argument. Again - more hypocrisy.
And yes, BC IS a superior academic school in the eyes of many. Just refer to the USN&WR which is the survey that these schools all use - including Uconn - to advertise their academic pedigree. I invite PL to access the 2010 survey and go down the list of National Universities, pick out where BC falls...now continue further down the list to see where Uconn falls. Again - his argument destroyed.
One interesting thing about LP. He slams BC for every small thing he can imagine. Yet in his praise for Uconn, he is very willing to forget some serious and embarrassing developments regarding the men's BB program - the major NCAA sanctions that were levied against them just a couple of months ago, their horrific graduuation rate, the embarrassing story in both the Globe and NYT this weekend. One only wonders what he would be saying if these stories were being written about BC this year. Methinks he would not be turning a blind eye to them as he has done for Uconn.
If that isn't enough, he sadly makes an idiot out of himself with his claim that the JFK election was "not lawful." Perhaps LP needs a good political science course to better understand how the US electoral system works.
To sum it up, LP has made...and continues to make... a class A fool of himself on these boards. Sad really.
