LOCKER ROOM REPORT: Wolfpack Players

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

"We just had trouble wrapping on."

"I guess put a focus on wrapping up, getting to the ground."

"We didn't make enough plays to get the win, so back to work."

"We had to get the  swing of the game going back our way."

"Obviously we didn't do enough. We could have got a stop at the end of the game, but we didn't. We just didn't finish on defense."

"We played well in the first half and in the third quarter they came out and scored two touchdowns. We just can't do that. We knew they were a third-quarter team and that's what we preached all week."

"We're not working together, but when the offense is down the defense has to step up, make takeaways, create big plays on defense."

"I can't speak for the offense. I'm not an offensive player."

"We have to forget this game when we leave the building."

"Not at all. This one hurts obviously on Senior Night, and we didn't get our sixth win to go bowling, but the season isn't over. We'll bounceback and get our sixth win next week."

"To say it was frustrating is definitely an understatement."

"This has been one of the best experiences for my life. I wouldn't trade it for the world. I wish I would have had five years here.  Obviously God's plan is different and I'm here, and I've enjoyed every single minute I've been in Raleigh with the Wolfpack."

"We'll start working on it tomorrow. We have to move on from this, learn from the mistakes."

"We have a lot of confidence."

"This one is tough, we have to move on from it."

"I think we just didn't execute to the ability we could."

"I don't listen to what the fans say. I just try to stay in my zone and play my game, do what I have to do for this team."

"I really don't pay attention to what anyone says, if they are cheering or if they are booing."

"We have to stop the run. That's our main focus the entire season. If we can stop the run we'll see what happens."

"We can't live in the past after today.  We have to focus on Carolina."

"It's tough right now because there were a lot of mistakes on the field... that's why it hurts so bad."

"It's correctable, we focus on those things all the time in practice."

"We can't have any dumb penalties, but it is what it is."

"It's tough because these guys work on it day-in and day-out in practice... it's tough to see that on the field when these guys work on it all day."
