    Exactly. He throws out the 'stone's throw' metaphor without really thinking it through with respect to the rest of the leagues.

    So I guess if Miami wins it all, we have a built-in reason to dismiss their Championship: Ft. Wayne and Detroit are a 'stone's throw' away from their campus.

      I will attempt one more tap on the BC faithful hornet nest before I run off. I will admit that my choice of the words 'stone 's throw' lacked accuracy. Allow me to change it to....let's say.... shouting distance. Worcester (4) Manchester (2). Don't like that one? How's about "short bicycle ride from Commonwealth, or a flightless airplane ride from one end of Logan to the other? Lighten up guys, BC is one of the top programs in the country. We can all admit to that.

        I think people took exception to your comment about being one of the top three or four teams within your conference.

        I'm in Atlanta now and that's how the SEC football fans sound when they start dismissing other successful teams / programs from other areas of the country.

        ...but, I'm sure you knew that. It's fun to poke the hornet's nest now and again s'all good.

          It. Doesn't. Matter.

          The nature of east vs. west is that the venues are closer in the east and the successful ones keep winning bids. That's Worcester and Manchester on a regular basis with Providence, Amherst, Bridgeport, Albany, Rochester sprinkled in. And again, almost all of those you will consider to be in close proximity to BC until you get out to Albany.

          The fact that you BC fans revel in the superiority of your team in an admittedly weak league leads me to believe you will be more sorely disappointed when the end comes than we will.

              We think highly of York and the BC program in the west, but no more than the top three or four WCHA programs over that same time span.
