"When you can't play, you still have to be part (of the team)," Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski said Monday when asked about the game during an interview. "You should be encouraging the guy in for you, unless you have to go back to the training room. Your body is not there, but keep your spirit in there."
"If a guy's hurt, that team is not going to let him play," Coach K said. "If he can't play he can't play. But because of (Cutler's) reputation or the perception that he doesn’t always have a great face, what they portrayed on the sidelines was something that you wouldn't want to see. He wasn't interacting. At least what we saw on TV. But then after the game they talked about how he did interact with his teammates."
Coach K knows as well as anyone how what people see on TV can alter their perception of a person.
"They can make you out into who they want to make you out to be," he said.
