Hodge Watch
"But unless Hodge can be reasonably assured after the June 1-2 pre-draft camp that he'll be a first-rounder, his best option would be to withdraw from the draft and play for State next season. He can pull his name out up to a week before the draft and still return to NCSU." - Caulton Tudor 3/24/2004

Rivers Watch
"Rivers has a demeanor, a presence about him. Everyone talks about his delivery, but we have no reservations regarding his throwing motion. He has the ability to make all the throws." - Chargers coach Marty Schottenheimer - 3/30/2004

Quote of the Day: North Carolina State baseball coach Elliott Avent - "They (FSU) have a good baseball team. I know they were struggling a little bit when we came in defensively, and they had a tough night Friday. But (Saturday) they showed what they are about. Today they came out and played with a lot more confidence."

Don't bother coach Mike Martin about Stephen Drew's struggles at the plate against North Carolina State. Drew may have a zero in the hit column for the series but it was another zero that was a bigger deal to Martin after No.19 FSU won 10-3 on Sunday to bounce back with two victories over the Wolfpack.
