Avent: "We Are Excited"

RALEIGH, N.C. -- NC State head coach Elliott Avent discusses his team's NCAA bid with the media.

"What I try to teach our young me... you don't need to talk about fair shakes in life."

"We know what we have to do. We have three very good teams coming to Raleigh this weekend."

"I hope they don't even think about it. It's a decision made by people we don't have no control over it."

"We love our fans. They'll come out in droves like they did in Durham."

"We have got play a tad better. We're playing good, but we'd like to turn it up a notch and play better."

"These guys can put things in their rear-view mirror."

"That was one of the greatest ballgames I've ever had the privilege to be in, in front of so many of our fans. I was so proud of our team for playing so well, but we left some things on the table and it could have been a different outcome."

"You're winning it for your fans... for every former player that's ever put on a baseball uniform at NC State."

"They put that sign up themselves because it's been this team's focus since day one."

"Our fans are very vocal and passionate fans. They'll be here and our guys like playing here so we are excited."

"We know we want to go to Omaha and win a national championship."
