McCombs says little regarding situation
McCombs only said it was a “coach’s decision” and did not offer further comment on the situation.
Pasqualoni said “Lyle, unfortunately, violated a team policy and we will move on from there.”
Pasqualoni said he has been briefed on McCombs situation and he does not anticipate any further disciplinary action.
McCombs teammates made a point of offering support to him on the sideline when he was left to watch Hyppolite and DeLorenzo struggle to find holes against the well-designed and relentless Scarlet Knights’ defense.
“Lyle will be all right,” UConn senior linebacker Sio Moore said. “He is a hard-working kid. I am with Lyle all the time. He is always in my room and I am one of the guys who kind of took him under my wing. I’ve talked to him and he is going to be all right. He’s got the flame under him. He is going to come back and be all right.”
