RALEIGH, NC -- NC State players Darrell Blackman and DaJuan Morgan met with the media today to discuss the upcoming game against Louisville.

Darrell Blackman

"It's an opportunity to make a big play and try to put some points on the board for my team."

"I just try to seize the opportunity and make it happen."

"We've got to go out there on defense and slow them down, stop them, and then on offense just put together a gameplan, complete passes, and move the ball down the field like we are capable of."

"I think you've got to be confident and fearless."

"I take that as a challenge. You've got to take it as a challenge... to make us step up to the plate and become a better football team. This week in practice, that's what I'm going to try to get across to the players because I know they probably heard it or someone asked them about it. That's all it is. He's trying to make us step up to the plate and step up to the challenge.. to be that team that we are capable of being."

"It would probably be surprising because he really doesn't give anybody compliments... we found out that he's a man of few words."

DaJuan Morgan

"Every week is a challenge. This week is a better opportunity for our DBs to get our hands on balls. I know we're going to be challenged this week."

"We've got to work hard this week in practice."

"I think we're becoming more focused now. We've been up-and-down."

"Great teams find ways to win in crucial moments, and right now we're not finding those ways. We can't be considered a great team until we do."

"It's a little bit of a shock. I've never heard coach O'Brien talk to me or about anybody that way. I never heard him say it so it kind of means a lot to me."
