Locker Room Report: Wolfpack Players

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Several NC State players met with the media after the loss to No. 22 Florida State.

"Tough... heartbreaking. We've came so close. This is our fourth game decided by seven or less, and we're right there. We just have to finish."

"We know that we can."

"I'm always ready for the opportunity. I didn't have the best game at ECU and got benched.  I stuck with it, believed in myself, and believed in my technique."

"Unfortunately Kyle missed tonight and I was called on."

"You got to get out of your head, and every kick is the same kick."

"We lost, so heads are down now, but we have to keep fighting."

"We go out every week and practice, practice hard, come out here and play hard."

"Playing a running back like that, you want to stop the run first."

"He's a great back. If he had the ball, we were trying to get to him."

"We've lost a lot of heartbreakers... we keep finding a way to lose instead of winning. It's been really tough, but I know we'll keep working."

"Our offense, Ryan finds the open man and i seems like tonight I was the open man."

"We didn't come out with the win, and that's really all I care about."

"We knew we had to finish... we know they are a fourth-quarter team and it will be a fourth-quarter game."

"Ryan was giving me some great balls... honestly the 100-yard game and all that came from the o-line."

"You can never think that because you see what happen.  We have to keep our heads up and keep playing."

"Stopping the run is a point of emphasis every week, and he happens to be the running back."

"I told him he's my brother... I love him. You can't look at it like the game is on him." 

"We could have got a sack instead of putting him in that situation."

"We have to get there."

"It's very frustrating. It almost feels like we're cursed."

"We have to come back to work."

"The line did a good job of opening holes for me today."

"It's tough, we won all aspects of the game, but we just have to finish."

"It was a great feeling, but it's Florida State. You can't sit back on those guys."

"He's hurt right now and a lot of guys are talking to him."

"It's what I need to do to help the team win."

"The o-line did a great job of establishing the line of scrimmage."

"I'm not really surprised... that's what he does in practice."

"We're a great team, we just have to finish."
