Brissett: "It's Going To Be Fun"

RALEIGH, N.C. - NC State senior quarterback Jacoby Brissett met with the media to discuss the upcoming bowl game against Mississippi State.

"Just the resilence of the team. We lose two of our best players throughout the year and just the way we kept pushing and kept fighting."

"The way we handled that, it's a big part of our offense that we lost."

"You look at our schedule we still played some of the toughest teams in the country, one of them is in the playoffs right now."

"We have to play our kind of football and let everything else handle itself."

"Yes, we'd be 8-5 and end the season with a win against a tough opponent.  It would be a good way to send the seniors out."

"Just how the game goes... in the beginning of the year a lot of teams knew one of our strong points was [David Grinnage], and he's been making plays. I've been doing a good job of trying to find him and I've put him in situations where he can get open."

"That's what it is... throw it up to him, and you've seen some of the catches he's made.  Sometimes I think I'm stupid for throwing it at him and he finds a way to catch it.  He's a really good player and I'm lucky he's on our side of the ball."

"They've been great. They've been making plays all throughout the game and all season."

"That whole receiving core has grown up a lot this year.  They've done nothing but impress me this year."

"I can't wait to watch him play.  He's a really good player and a really good kid.  I'm excited to see him get his career started and go out there and show what he can do."

"He asks me sometimes too many questions, and that's a good thing.  He's always willing to learn from everybody and that's what is really good. I can't wait to watch him play and see how he does."

"I just tell him to do what he can do.  People will hate you and like you at every point at your career.  Go out there and do your best... make a name for yourself to do what you can do to help yourself in the future."

"I threw a couple of passes to him.  He's actually really good. That's exciting for the future of the program. Hopefully for the bowl game we'll get him a catch or two."

"It's no different than any other game week."

"It's a bowl game but at the end of the day you have to win a game and that's the importance of the trip."

"He's a really good player.  He was at the Manning Passing Academy with me this summer and I got to see him throw.  It's going to be fun. I don't think it's going to come down to us, it will come down to our whole teams."

"Yeah, I played.  I scored and got a concussion. I don't remember... it's been a long time."
