Dave Doeren’s Press Conference After WVU: BULLETED

Published

on

Head Coach Dave Doeren met with the media in his postgame press conference after NC State’s 44-27 loss to West Virginia yesterday. You can watch the video here, or check out a bulleted breakdown below.

  • 1st half did some good things offensively.
  • 2nd half couldn’t stop edges of their run game.
  • Give them credit. Did a lot of different things than we’d seen.
  • Adjusted, but didn’t do a good job getting players to understand adjustments.
  • Coaches have to own the loss first and foremost. Players have to be able to take the coaching.
  • Not ourselves.
  • Blocked punt a major mistake on mental error. Catchup from that point, & weren’t throwing ball well enough for that.
  • 5 of 17 on third down.
  • When you give up 200 yards rushing it’s hard to win.
  • We won’t let this game define us.

Touchdown struggles in 2nd half…

  • Multitude of things.
    • Dropped passes
    • Batted balls when we had guys open.
    • We ran the ball well into the boundary in 1st. They adjusted.
    • They won battle of the trenches today.

Run Defense issues…

  • Couldn’t stop the edges.
  • Have to be able to adjust during the game.

Matt McKay…

  • Did some good things.
  • Don’t think he played rattled.
  • Calm on sidelines.
  • Could do a lot of things better obviously.
  • A lot of things that happen are out of his control.
    • Dropped passes.
    • Not running the route right.
  • Easy to blame me. I’ll take it. Easy to blame QB, but there’s a lot of people involved, and all have to own it.

    exactly what a coach who constantly accepts losing says. Hey, it’s easy to blame me. Easy and proper!
    I try to like Dave, but he’s not a winning coach, and certainly not what NC State needs in a head coach.

NC State’s Dave Doeren Buys Lunch for Rex Hospital Employees

Published

on

Earlier this week, NC State head football coach Dave Doeren bought lunch for 100 employees at Rex Hospital in Raleigh.

The food bought was from Moe’s Southwest Grill.

Rex is where NC State sends their players if they need to go to the hospital.

Alan Wolf, media relations manager for Rex Healthcare, told Jonas Pope IV of the News & Observer how much Doeren’s generosity meant.

“It’s a stressful time to be at the hospital,” Wolf told the N&O on Tuesday. “These are folks on the front line of helping patients through this pandemic. To have an outpouring of support from people like coach Doeren and those in the community who have donated all sorts of food, lunches, meals, it’s been an amazing thing to see.”

“It’s thoughtful, it’s generous and it’s heartwarming,” Wolf said. “When you’re in the hospital for however long your shift is and all of a sudden there’s a boxed lunch that a football coach donated, it means the world.” (N&O)
