Locker Room Report: Chuck Amato

RALEIGH, N.C. -- NC State head coach Chuck Amato met the media following the loss to Georgia Tech.

"We're going and going and we thought we would have the opportunity to see a two point play at the end. We had big plays, our kicking game was good, and we had those two interceptions. We held our own defensively in the third quarter."

"We came in thinking we had a better chance to move the ball. But if you're going to throw it, you can't have seven or eight dropped passes. They do so much zone blitzing that it disrupts the running game, but our line did good reading the blitzes. We thought this was our best chance to move the ball. I don't think we've had this many dropped passes in the last three games, and we have good receivers."

"There's no question that we'll see plays [on the video] that should have been touchdowns. I know people don't want to keep hearing this, but those kids came in believing, our fans came in believing, that we would win this game. And that's what's so great about our fans, that they believe."

"We have no room for error. To get to a bowl we have to win our next three games. None of our next few games will be easy."

"We started to control the rush because we didn't want their quarterback running around. We had double coverage on Calvin, but when you do that, you have to take a man out of the box. We had to decide how to make it tougher on them and we decided to try and take out Calvin."
