In the middle of football season we can’t just ignore the other sports in which our program is currently struggling …so, we thought we would throw some love towards “Section Six” for their poignant reasoning.
So, from the coach himself, there are no excuses for not making the NCAAs, and missing the tournament is unacceptable. If/when the team does not reach that goal, then… right? Right?
When you read Tarantini’s comments like the following…
To get to play on Friday or Saturday night will be a huge advantage for us. I have never talked about that before. You never heard me say anything like that. I never talk about facilities. That’s not me. I play with whatever we have, and there was no excuse for us to not make the NCAA tournament.
…you need to keep in mind how easy it is for Tarantini to make these statements publicly without the least bit of private or internal pressure. He could basically make himself sound like quite a stand-up guy because he has never had to worry about complaining about facilities since his Athletics Director makes the excuses for all of his coaches.
Remember this entry?
“I couldn’t expect a whole lot more from [the soccer coaches] with the facilities we had,” Fowler said. “So now that we do have facilities, I expect an uptake, and we need to be playing to go to the NCAAs every year — not one out of two or three.
As shared in the comments section of this entry, the following is the current NCAA South Region Soccer rankings…all of whom OBVIOUSLY have much better fuch-cilities than NC State when you apply the Fowler-doctrine.
1. Wake Forest
2. North Carolina
3. South Carolina
4.Campbell They will beat UNC OCT. 28
5. College of Charleston
8. Florida Gulf Coast
