Know your place.

NCAA Football: Connecticut at Boston College Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

I am the resident Nutmegger here at BC Interruption, and as such I’m also the one who has been calling for BC to schedule UConn in football.

Let me tell you why.

You don’t know blind, baseless arrogance until you are surrounded by UConn fans. For years — years! — UConn fans have been telling us that if only BC would stop being so afraid and schedule them, they’d sure show us!

The lawsuit was just an excuse, they’d say. BC’s refusal to play the Huskies and blackballing their entry into the ACC was not due to bad blood, but a fear of being exposed by the new kids on the block down in Storrs (or East Hartford or whatever).

“Just watch,” we would hear, incessantly, “Give us a shot on the football field, and we’ll finally prove that we’re better!”

Just take a trip on over to The Boneyard, UConn’s message board, if you don’t believe me.

Well, UConn, you finally got your chance, and against one of the weakest BC football teams in our long history. This was your big shot! And, well...

30-0! Do you know how hard it is for us to score 30 points? Do you know how hard it is to not score any points against us? And the game wasn’t even as close as the score. The Huskies crossed midfield exactly one (1) time. This was a certified, Grade A, backhand-slap-upside-the-head to a fanbase that was getting a little too uppity for its own good.

I can already see you furiously typing. But is “hey, you know this is all B.S., we only lost because we’re really, really bad!” even an excuse? I mean... you’re right! We agree!

-6 yards rushing. Negative 6! That’s amazing. You know who had more yards rushing this weekend than UConn? Me. I did, personally.

121 total yards of offense — a program record for ineptitude, as The UConn Blog pointed out. Wow. We are truly honored.

God, curbstomping your garbage program was just so satisfying. I don’t care how bad BC football is this year. It is comforting to know that no matter how bad BC could ever be, UConn will always be just that much worse. And now, you all know it too.

A complete, thorough thumping of your team, as bad as we are, made slogging through this godawful season worthwhile. After all these years of you begging us to let you “settle it on the field,” y’all got clowned by one of the worst BC teams in history.

All UConn fans will now kindly STFU and speak only when spoken to. Stay in your lane. And enjoy life in the AAC until you finally fold your program to focus on hoops.

Know your place, UConn fans. Live it. Learn it. Love it.
