"I got an email from one of the BC assistant coaches who wasn't too happy about my commitment. He told me stuff like the UConn coaching staff isn't going to be there in January. I called up Coach Moorhead and Coach [Randy] Edsall and told them about it and asked them and they told me that was absolutely ridiculous and reassured me they'd be there. [...] It definitely surprised me coming from another school especially the asinine way they did it. Like I said, after talking to the coaches, I'm not really worried about it."

UConn football QB recruit (class of 2011) Michael Nebrich, to Des Conner at the Hartford Courant. Negative recruiting happens all the time, in every major sport, so it's not surprising that Boston College would be big liars to swing a prospect from Storrs to Chestnut Hill. Still, we don't have much opportunity to mock Boston College around these parts, what with them refusing to be embarrassed by play UConn in football and all. So you gotta love BC coaches feeling a little nervous about losing recruiting battles to those nobodies in Storrs, no?
