“I used to love them, now I want to kill them.”

Son, your first mistake was assuming Ryan Day was on the up and up about his quarterback recruiting.

“I get it’s a business, but it always sucks being lied to,” McCarthy said. “And that’s kind of where the rivalry started for me. And the hatred. But what are you going to do? It’s a business and they have to do what they have to do. They lied to my face, but it’s all good now.”

This is college football.

    Day sounds like a scarlet and gray Butch Jones on the recruiting trail. Wonder if he coaches like him, too?

    Ryan Day learned from the master. Remember “we’re only recruiting [Tim Tebow] as a linebacker”?

    So, the number 2 rated quarterback felt threatened enough by the number 8 rated quarterback to go elsewhere? Shouldn’t you welcome the competition? Aren’t you confident in your own abilities? I don’t think I want a guy like that on my team anyway.
