RALEIGH, N.C. -- Audie Cole and Taylor Gentry met with the media today to discuss the upcoming game against Georgia Tech.

Audie Cole

"We know we have to get off the field. We enjoy third down. Third down is a fun down to play. Usually you're looking for pass, except for this week I think, but usually you're looking for pass and everyone is excited."

"When you're having fun you're winning."

"Everyone has been doing their assignments and we've cut down a lot of mistakes."

"J.R. and I were talking the other day about how if you're having fun playing football it's hard to lose."

"It seems like there's a good atmosphere around campus."

"I think we were 3-1 last year so... we didn't end up too well so we've got a long ways to go."

"Last year at some point, maybe middle of the season, things became a lot easier."

"I think they have a good offense. It's tough to stop. You have to be very disciplined on defense to stop them."

"That's what we're trying to stop this week."

"My boxing coaches always thought I could pursue it if I wanted to."

"No. I don't think so. I think a few schools recruited me as an athlete, not sure what to do, but I don't think anyone [else] said that's what they wanted me to do, play linebacker."

"He always said I played quarterback like I played defense."

Taylor Gentry

"I received several walk-on offers from ECU, UNC, and NC State."

"I felt like this was the best fit for me."

"Both of my parents attended NC State, and I had been attending games since I was about seven years old."

"I went out there trying to get the coaches to notice me by tackling people."

"You need to make the coaches remember you. That's how you get a spot."

"It was a big transition. I was 195 pounds coming out of high school playing wideout."

"It's just cool seeing my little brother make a tackle out there."

"The only place I think it really affects me is in the passing game, blitz pickup."

"It kind of changes the person we have to pick up."
