    where he mentioned Steve Snapp the SID was really classy. My last post was about Ego Maniac SID's but Snapp is one of the best. Who else do you all think is very good?

    Jim Streeter at Eastern Michigan is great.

    And, I'm not sure if SID is his title, Bruce Madej at Michigan is at the top as well.

    I will try to say this as nicely as possible: any media member who says they enjoy working with Steve Snapp, or even that he is good at his job, is lying. The man is miserable, and if it wasn't for Brady Quinn packing it in during big games this season Smith would likely have lost the Heisman.

    Incompetent would be a good word to describe "The Snapper."

    Good SIDs to work for? Sam Ferguson at Averett is the only one that comes to mind. Jim Streeter is pretty solid as well, P.O.

    Anyone who ever tried to dial into the non-publicized Smith-Ginn teleconferences this year and wasted their time as one or the other either didn't show or the phones wouldn't work, or tried in vain to contact Snapp for info on upcoming Smith availability only to get no response, knows where Bucknutty is coming from.

    I thought that was absolutely hilarious that he thanked him. That's an SID's dream. The Snapper looked as if he was going to cry.

    Whenever The Snapper can give a straight, honest answer, that will be the first time.

    I can say that Snapp has been great to work with. I saw some of you commented on working for him and I can't comment on that. I can say that he has been terrific to me.

    You concur, I presume? And I'm not just a bitter one-timer. I dealt with him for two years, he sucks. Out loud.

    Great to work with? You with ESPN? Snapp is the biggest prick in the business. No sense of ethics and is just a miserable person. You can even sense the tension between Tressel and him.
