PC: Cole And Williams Meet The Media

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Audie Cole and Jarvis Williams met with the media on Monday afternoon to discuss the Pack's upcoming game with West Virginia.

Audie Cole

"It's important to the team and the fans to go to a bowl. It's expected to go to a bowl and when you don't it's upsetting to the team and the community."

"We're going down there to have a good time but we still have a game to play when get down there, we have to remember that."

"I don't really think they will be unfocused coming in. They are going to be ready to play and they have great athletes. But we're the best we've been since I've been here. It's going to be a tough one."

"We've still got one more game, we need to finish this out on a high note."

"You kind of forget about what he's been through but when they show it on the jumbotron it's kind of surreal. It's amazing how [Nate Irving] came back from it. He's still the same Nate. He's always worked hard, does everything he's supposed to do. I can't really say it's changed him too much."

"I don't mind that at all. I haven't been to Disney World in about 10 years. I didn't like it at the time but I think I was too young to appreciate it."

"They just do amazing things and we have to scheme and try to figure out how to beat them."

Jarvis Williams

"It's a great opportunity for me to play in my hometown for my last college football game. It's just going to be a great time."

"I made sure that going into the spring I would work on things I needed to work on. I progressed as the years came by making plays and getting the opportunity to start. It made me work harder."

"I knew Coach O'Brien's staff as well because they offered me out of high school as well. We had a relationship forever so I didn't think about transferring."

"Our chemistry has gotten better and stronger. The receivers have been around each other for three or four years. The chemistry came along through the years, just practicing together."

"[Russell Wilson] is a workaholic. He pushes every play. Just trying to keep up with him makes everyone a better player. He's always making sure everyone is locked in. If I have a down day I'll just look at Russell."

"It's one of my goals. Hopefully after I will get ready and prepare for the NFL draft."

"It's not tougher. We have played every defense there is and we already have watched film on them and seen some similar schemes. We already know what plays fit to take advantage of their defensive backs."

"My Mom and Grandmother came up and wanted to see me walk across the stage. I just wanted to make sure before I leave this school that I leave with a degree."
