Cincinnati Head Coach Butch Jones
On NC State's Defense--
"We made some mistakes against a very good football team. There's a reason they're ranked first in the ACC in total defense."
On Cincinnati defensive back Wesley Richardson--
"Wes is an individual we rely on defensively."
On preparation for upcoming matchup with Oklahoma--
"Nobody on this team is going to feel sorry for themselves. It's a long football season, and we'll be back. We'll be working tomorrow."
NC State Head Coach Tom O'Brien
"I think we're playing hard. Now we have to play smarter. We can be a much better football team. We gutted it out, and found a way to win. Russell (Wilson) played well, and our receivers made plays. Our defense was pretty good, but we gave up too many long passes tonight."
On the play of Jarvis Williams:
"He was great. He made some great catches tonight. He made catches that most receivers won't make. The important thing is that he made the catches early on when we needed it."
On defensive plan against Cincinnati quarterback Zach Collaros:
"We wanted to blitz to help keep their quarterback (Collaros) from running the ball. He's a real good quarterback, and fast. So our focus was to stop him. We thought if we could stop him then we could stop their offense."
"I think we can be a better football team, but more importantly, I think our football team knows they can be better. The good thing is we didn't get shook up when we made mistakes. If we can do a better job of coaching and making them (the players) smarter, then we can be a much better football team."
