Doeren is done!

Maybe we could forgive the Head Coach for being a bonehead if this was his first or second time, but it's more than three times at least that his stupidity has cost us momentum in a game. Yes, as Steve Logan says coaches get fired over such things as fake punts when you have the lead in a game, especially when you lose to one of your rivals.

.... .... .... yes, he's the Pack's Torbush, but without a Bowl win, and he's well on his way to being the first STATE Head Coach let go after only one season (Coach Michaels voluntarily stepped down so Lou Holtz could take over).

Another stunning hire by Yow. Mark "Plan Z" Gottfried stinks, too. Then she goes and fires Harper, one of the few good things we had going for us!

Before long (end of 2014) seasons, Yow will have NC State in same economic "red ink" she left Maryland with. The only smart choice is to fire her ASAP along with her hires.

Reminded me of the Monte Kiffin "on side kick" years ago. Dumb play then, and still dumb move yesterday!! Same old NCSU....Ha Ha

And he says he is going to remember the UNC celebration on his field "for 364 days" until he plays us again. Perfect! Just the sort of mindset UNC fans like to have NCSU's coaches stuck in!

Dave Doeren has not shown the football savvy needed to guide this team properly, he has game time management issues, mistakes every single game, and now this desperate attempt to seize defeat from the jaws of victory. It's obvious that you never call a fake punt when you have the lead, and certainly never ever when the other team hasn't even gotten on the scoreboard yet, not to mention where on the field he decided to do this, utterly foolish.

I find it interesting that NIU is still a top 25 team. I guess it wasn't the coach . 4th and 12 fake punt. No one with that thought process should be coaching major college football let alone high school. just a stupid move. Can't imagine what he was thinking when he heard this play called....." hey yea i like it...let's give it a try"....just shameful.
Chapel Hail Nov 4, 12:13 p.m.
... "thinking", no he wasn't thinking much at all, it was a total act of fool heartiness, and really not needed at all. Why give the opposition any idea that you don't believe in yourselves as a team, really now, it showed a hand of desperation when there was no reason to be desperate.

I just find it frightening that a coach would ever believe that was the right call. Wether they make the first down or not is irrelevant. that was the worst call and a coach with that mind set is scary. I'm all for giving the guy a chance to get his own players in the system but regardless who the players were that was a terrible call. How long will NC State stick with a guy who is that brain dead?
