    Quote of the Day: Chuck Amato on Philip Rivers for Heisman - "There is no reason he shouldn't be part of this Heisman race. If we kick one extra point (at Florida State), wouldn't he be in the top three? He would be. In the Ohio State game (a triple-overtime loss), if one official's call is called the other way and we win ... you're talking about one play he had nothing to do with. They're not wiping off the wide receiver (Larry Fitzgerald) at Pitt, and they have three losses. That's why I feel sorry for Philip Rivers. He's broken every ACC record and he's never been first-team all-conference."

    Tim Peeler * News & Record
    That's the best way to describe Philip Rivers' legacy at N.C. State, by putting him right next to Roman Gabriel, who for more than 40 years has been the name in Wolfpack football, at least in the mind of Chuck Amato. For others, it may have been Dick Christy, or High Point's Ted Brown, or Gibsonville's Torry Holt. Read More

    Quote of the Day Extra: Chuck Amato on retiring Philip Rivers' jersey - "You can be rest assured at one point that No. 17 will be hanging on that dadgone second deck, if I have to call my cousin Vinny down and do it ourselves."

    Quote of the Day Extra 2: Norm Chow on Philip Rivers - "However you want to define what 'it' is, Philip has it. It's something you can't teach, it's something you can't learn -- it's just something you have. And he does."
