Bruce Pearl on missed double dribble: ‘Get over it’

ESPN

Auburn coach Bruce Pearl isn't dwelling on the missed call on a potential double dribble by Virginia's Ty Jerome that might have helped his team advance to the national title game.

Pearl said Monday on ESPN's Get Up! that human error is a part of the game and he's proud of how his players handled a crushing defeat on Saturday.

"The biggest point I want to make, and I'm sincere in this, I'm not just saying this because it's politically the right thing to say. There is human error involved in the game. Kids make mistakes, coaches make mistakes. Yes, officials will make mistakes. That's part of the game. Get over it," he said.

"Sometimes they're going to go your way, sometimes they're not going to go your way. Are we going to give God less glory because we lost and … only because we win? Stop. Grow up, this is part of the game. These kids taught us, I think, in many, many ways how to handle defeat. And that's a difficult thing to do for these young kids. And I'm proud of them."
