Florida State football fell to NC State 28-14 tonight. The Seminoles’ second straight loss dropped their record to 3-6. The ‘Noles will have to win out over their last three games to become bowl eligible. After the game, QB McKenzie Milton, RB Jashaun Corbin, WR Keyshawn Helton, and DE Keir Thomas each spoke to the media. Here’s some of what they had to say:

McKenzie Milton

“I think the bulk of the team was dealing with some ailments, whether it was physically or mentally. It was tough, but the way our team handled it, it doesn’t surprise me the way this team’s responded to adversity all year.”

“I’m proud of our guys with the way they came to work. We got to game day and fought our butts off.”

“Always try to stay ready and approach my work just to be ready to go.”

“I felt confident in the game plan and my ability to execute, there were just some critical situations where we didn’t.”

Jashaun Corbin

“Challenges was just new faces having to step up. Flu is kind of going through the entire city. New guys had to step into bigger roles. Guys like me needed to step up more and lead more.”

“We got in a little rhythm in the second half, but we got to do that for the entire game.”

Keyshawn Helton

“I think we should have played better. College football is someone goes down, next man up... we got to do a better job of executing.”

“If anybody has to get anybody hyped up for this game (FSU vs. UM), they should not be playing at Florida State. I’m looking forward to it.”

“It’s about work. You get better through the work.”

“To keep going, we just got to keep believing.”

Keir Thomas

“We just got to eliminate the big plays.”

“It was pretty tough. Training staff did a great job. That shows toughness for some of the guys.”

“I’m not worried about how we’re going to respond. I know we’re going to fight. It’s just cleaning up the little things.”
