RALEIGH, N.C. -- NC State head coach Tom O'Brien met with the media following the Wolfpack's loss to Clemson.

“Give Clemson credit they did a good job today. That's a good football team and certainly we didn't help ourselves today. Too many mistakes – for a team like us to beat a team like them we had to be perfect and we were certainly far from that this afternoon.”

“I don't understand [the drops] at all. You come out and you have a chance to play and you have to make plays. As I said you have to make plays to beat somebody as good as Clemson. You got chances, the guy is open, you gotta catch it.”

“You have those young kids in the secondary and hopefully they grow up fast. Hopefully they learn from this and do better this week.”

“There are too many kids here in their last year here to just cast them aside and say you aren't going to play. It's still the same thing, you still have to win as many football games as you can and you still try to improve as a football team.”

“They use [Spiller] a lot but the bottom line is if you get lined up and you stay in your responsibilities you at least give yourself a chance.”

“I can't think of any [positives], to tell you the truth.”
