Steve Fisher slams NCAA in postgame presser (VIDEO)

Mar 21, 2014, 10:39 AM EST

The NCAA tournament game between New Mexico State and San Diego State didn’t tip until 11:03 PM eastern time (8:03 PT time), and when the game finally ended — an overtime affair won by the Aztecs, 83-73 — it was well into the evening. When asked during the post-game presser why SDSU didn’t post double on Sim Bhullar, coach Steve Fisher instead broke character and chastised the NCAA for forcing the losing team to leave the regional site immediately.

Some choice quotes:

    • We don’t want to go home tonight. It’s 10 minutes after 11. By the time you get back to the hotel, did they want us to tell our kids pack your bags and if we win we’ll go back?
    • It’s disgraceful. For the billions of dollars that we have here, for them not to find a way to accommodate these kids, the student athletes. You can’t tell me they couldn’t find charter planes.
    • …we can say we want to do all these things for the benefit of the student athletes, but you play a game like we did tonight and you get to the airport at 1 in the morning?
    • I would like to have every, every go from the top up administratively, have them at a site and allow and say you’re going to ride home with that losing team … It shouldn’t happen.

      the NCAA is completely right, get the phuck out immediately you losers, and
      don’t ever come back!

    I had no idea it worked that way. That’s totally absurd. The NCAA cares about nothing but the dollars. Somebody probably got a promotion for saving them the few bucks it would cost to handle this properly.

      they should charge the kids for the Gatorade too.

      you are right, go sleep in the airport, I applaud the NCAA and not support losers, do they
      expect food too, what is this welfare?
