The normal Sunday routine for N.C. State’s football team is to watch film together.
The Clemson loss wasn’t a normal loss, so coach Dave Doeren skipped the normal routine.
“We felt like the best thing was to move forward,” Doeren said on Monday. “Correct the things that we needed to correct but not dwell on something like that.”
That’s the first time in Doeren’s fourth season the team hasn’t watched the game together. The players’ emotions were still raw on Sunday, Doeren said from the 24-17 overtime loss at No. 3 Clemson.
“They were angry, disappointed, mad — all the things you would expect them to be,” Doeren said. “But they were really good about wanting to move forward.”
