Selected Quotes from Tom O'Brien After State Wins Over North Carolina

"What it speaks to is we're the best football program in the state. Without question."

[N.C. State would finish 2008 at 6-7, but with wins over their three in-state ACC opponents.]

"It means a tremendous amount to this program. They're going to ask how [their] senior year was, and they're going to say, 'We beat Carolina.' And that'll sum up their year."

"Thank God it's over. I mean, I don't think we could go play in a bowl game if we had to."

[N.C. State entered into the 2009 game already ineligible for a bowl game.]

"It was a prayer, and it was answered."

[This, of course, referring to the tip-and-catch touchdown pass in 2010.]

"Well, just another State-Carolina football game."
