Locker Room Report: Wolfpack Players

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Several NC State players met with the media following the loss to Florida State.

Jacoby Brissett

"I feel like we came out and played hard. Down the stretch we have got to make more plays."

"We were really locked in. I feel like it was my fault towards the end some of those plays I did put us in bad situations so I have just got to learn from it."

"Bo is a great player and he was making plays--which he has done everyday since he got here. That was a position where we felt like we could beat them at."

"It was great. Overall, it was a great experience."

"Coach Canada has done a great job, as far as game-planning, and it is putting us in a position to win the game."

Shadrach Thornton

"I am a different type of person than in 2012--a better running back--and that is because of my teammates."

"That is because of my O-line. Those guys are gelling better than ever. Quite frankly, we had it in our minds that we could win this game."

"I feel like we made a statement about our program and where we are trying to take it. But there is a lot that does not matter."

"Individual stats or anything like that doesn't matter when you lose a game like this. If I only had two yards and we win, I really wouldn't care."

"It hurts. I just really feel like we can build off this."

Mike Rose

"I feel like we should have won that game. I personally take responsibility, the defense should never allow 50 points, and I think we can beat any team as long as we play better defense."

"We earned some respect tonight. We definitely earned some respect tonight and we're definitely are going to make a couple of teams know that we are coming to do business."

Bo Hines

"I am confident in our team. We obviously showed we can play with any team in the nation. It was the No. 1 team in the country. I thought our offense played extremely well."

"It is unbelievable. I don't know that I have ever seen a player play that way. That throw to Dayes where he is basically on the ground, those are big time plays from a big-time player. I think he is one of the best players in the country."

"A couple of calls go our way, we don't fumble the ball in the red zone and that game is right there at our fingertips. If that is the best team in the country then I feel like we can play with anybody."

"The fans were awesome. It didn't seem like the fans sat for the whole game. It was loud but it was a lot of fun."

Hakim Jones

"We are a completely different team than last year's. We play a lot better and a lot harder. The main thing is tackling. We missed a lot of open field tackles again this week We have got to improve that this week."

"Honestly, I feel like Jacoby is a better quarterback than he is and we go against Jacoby every day so once you see Jameis it is like he is just another guy."
