A day after USC was not selected for the NCAA Tournament, Andy Enfield was in rare form Monday. He said it was not his decision whether USC accepted an NIT bid but USC’s administration that decided. He also did not make any players available to the media.
Enfield also said it would be up to the players who might be draft picks to decide whether to play in the game.
“Whoever says they want to play will play,” Enfield said.
Is he ever responsible for anything? Not the schedule. Not accepting an NIT bid. Not his assistant coach who got fired after being indicted by the federal government.
When USC tailback Ronald Jones was asked if anyone was thinking of sitting out the Cotton Bowl, he immediately scoffed at that idea and said everyone would play. The NIT is not the Cotton Bowl. But acting like you are too good for it sends a terrible message and makes the coach seem like he has no control over the program.
