Quick notes from Boyd's press conference

by -

* Boyd said they didn't handle business in last loss with NC State. Any team can be beat on a given team. We were not a very mature team.

* Boyd said he can not remember what Dabo said after the loss and we just did not handle success. Coach Swinney helps us learn how to handle success. We have to continue to grow and hope have a good season.

* NC State has a good team. The DL has trimmed up and they go all out. We will need to be able to run the ball.

* He feels that the program has grown up.

* The guys on the team was really dialed up in practice.

* We practice the right way.

* This is a very physical team compared to past teams. The Defense is a little different from last year cause of a different system.

* Boyd has not seen a more passionate coach than Brent Venables.

* The WR's have a great week of practice. Germone made the most out of his time against SC State.

is going to be "ridiculous."

* This game is not a revenge game. They were the better team back then.

* On playing on the road: There is nothing like it. Some of the younger guys have never flown on an airplane. It is always fun.

* The game is sold out and is a credit to the program here and will continue to make strides.

* On getting best team best shot: We have high caliber players, best coaches in the nation, and everything we need.

* On crowd noise: I am so locked in and can not even hear the noise.
