On this week's game against Florida State
"I'm looking forward to it. I think we have a good game plan right now and I think the guys are fired up about going down the Florida State, we've had pretty good success against them the past few years so I think we all know what it takes to win."
On how his role has changed since last season's game
"I don't know if there is more to it but I feel more comfortable and I feel like I can do more this year. I was still trying to feel it out last year, now I kind of know what to expect and know what I'm doing out there."
On his second opportunity as a starter this year
"For the team as a whole its an opportunity. I'm not really focusing on what's going to happen after this game or anything. All I can do is go out there and focus on winning the game and let the chips fall where they may after that."
On the turnover problem
"It's like – what do we do? We focus on it in practice and we focus on it in meetings and everything. I just think its one of those things where it's almost too much talk about it. There comes a point where the players just have to accept responsibility for each individual person and make sure it doesn't happen."
On Chuck Amato
"I definitely respect coach Amato, I enjoyed him as a coach while he was here and I think everyone did. Just the program that he kind of got back on track here at NC State just with the facilities, and the excitement of the fans. I think the fans still respect him too."
