NC State coach David Doeren blasts NCAA for Holiday Bowl decision
North Carolina State head coach Dave Doeren just isn’t proud of the NCAA for its decision to not award his group its tenth win of the season after UCLA was pressured to tug out of the Holiday Bowl because of a COVID-19 subject. Doeren went on a rant to media Wednesday evening within the aftermath.
Doeren took a direct shot on the group, jokingly suggesting the acronym ought to stand for “No Clue At All.” Here’s what he had to say, by way of Pack Delight.
“Properly the NCAA stands for ‘No Clue At All’ for my part so I don’t actually care what they are saying about it. However our guys, like I stated we took a roster of men down there with zero COVID points, practiced each day and did all the things proper and did not get an opportunity to play the sport.
“So far as I’m involved we did beat them. They couldn’t even get to the sphere, ? So you may say no matter you need but when have a look at the School Soccer Playoff definition of what’s going to occur if that occurs in one in every of their video games, that group is forfeiting. So I really feel like we’re following the identical tips that these bowl video games are going to comply with.”
A part of Doeren‘s frustration stems from the timing of UCLA’s decision. The Bruins introduced they wouldn’t be fielding a group simply over 4 hours earlier than kickoff.
NC State and the Holiday Bowl labored Tuesday evening to attempt to discover a new opponent for the Wolfpack, calling “north of 10 groups” to attempt to make one thing work. However the recreation was formally canceled on Wednesday morning after it appeared there can be no takers.
Regardless of Doeren’s opinion on the matter, the NCAA report books will see NC State end with a 9–3 mark and no postseason bowl recreation. What the varsity claims could also be a distinct story.
