The entire quote is even better:


Speaking of Massachusetts, since joining the ACC, Boston College has become irrelevant in college sports. The Eagles (1-6) can't compete in football. They have no natural rivals.
The first time the vaunted Tar Heels came to Conte Forum, students camped outside for hours to get seats. Same with Duke. Now the novelty has worn off. Fans in Beantown wouldn't give a bowl of Manhattan clam chowder to see BC-Wake Forest or BC-Clemson.
It's worse in football. BC had great competitions with Penn State and Syracuse and West Virginia. But if you're not a BC alum, you don't care about those games against Duke or Virginia Tech or N.C. State.

BCU blocking UConn's invitation to the ACC is one that is based purely out of spite and hard feelings. They would benefit from having a natural rival. Leahy and Flipper are too dumb to see that.
