I stand corrected. Seems reasonable.
Im still not BTDT, that giveaway phrase was clearly attributed as something he would say

So if Pman is not the Academics First, Elite LACs Rule poster... who is?

Too funny, so you admit to being the type of slime ball parent everyone else hates except you are misinterpreted? Thatís what you want to counter with? Who ever you are you are a loser.

Not sure where you got an admission of being "a slime ball parent" out of my post, but then again, comprehension has never been your strong suit. As for being a loser, I can only say that I am comforted knowing that it is impossible for me to be a bigger loser than you. When one steps back and thinks about who you are and what you've done here (celebrity parent with a D1 star) cracking on other people and belittling them for 12+ years, one realizes that you truly are uniquely disturbed. Please say hello to the twins....and of course Suzie, SoccerDad33, and SoccerTaxi.

Anther user, "Perspective" (Pman) had a son, I think, who was good enough to get a "tip" into a NESCAC - Amherst?.

Pman understands that most players are not the Unicorns that BTDT daughter is, and encourages us to put Academic First. Good advice actually. BTDT on the other hand, knows how D1 recruiting works and offers equivalently good advice for those seeking scholarships. The tension between these two is constant as PMan insists that going to a prestigious D3 Liberal Arts College is the real win, and BTDT points out that if academics was always the family priority, then why fly all over the country playing elite club soccer.
So are BTDT and BTNT one and the same?
