NEW YORK — The words came from the Jack Coffey Field press box with a full-throated fury.
"That spit is on you! You're a senior quarterback! Act like it!"
Michael Nebrich had just thrown a lousy pass into the middle of the field picked off by Sacred Heart's Alec Finelli in the second quarter of this FCS first-round playoff game. Nebrich, the quarterback who drove out of Storrs in 2012 and never looked back, put on the headset and, yes, those were the words he heard from offensive coordinator Andrew Breiner, although Breiner actually used a barnyard phrase that rhymes with spit.
The words rattled the walls and rattled in Nebrich's ears.
