(ARE ANY FRESHMEN NICE DRESSERS?)
I ain't seen one yet. I haven't been impressed lately. But we'll see when schools starts. They're going to get their new clothes out and show it off, but I ain't gonna bring mine out on them yet. I'm going to keep mine in the closet.
(TALK ABOUT RJ ANDERSON)
RJ is doing fine. RJ is taking all the critics, looking them in the eye, and says, Sept. 6 comin', I'm gonna answer all y'all questions. He'll be ready to play. He's bitter. He's strong. He's faster than ever right now.
(CONFIDENT WITH THE DEFENSE?)
This year they're bigger, stronger, and faster than ever right now. They've got tons of experience and they're coaching the young guys to get ready to play too. Watch out, they're ready to play.
(ARE YOU GOING TO CARRY THE BALL?)
We're negotiating that. Me and the coach, we gotta split that up some how. If we win, it don't matter. I can snap too. I'm ready to snap. But I'm at fullback, and I'm grateful for that. I'm ready to play. But I can run though. Give me two more carries, and they'll never have to hear me again.
(YOU HAD A HUGE 48 YARD GAIN TWO YEARS AGO)
I ain't have one of those since I got here man. Right now, I'm a little quicker and faster than ever. I'm ready.
(WHAT DID YOU DO OVER THE SUMMER?)
Train. Watch what I was eating. Lifting weights. Just, all out. Whatever I could do to make myself better. I'm ready. I dropped a couple of pounds. I can't way to show y'all. I can't wait. But, mentally, I'm getting better.
Did y'all ever know I sat behind two draft picks? Y'all got to know that now. So it ain't like I haven't been playing because I was a scrub. Mentally, I'm ready to go. I could play next week.
(FIRST GAME IS AT UNC WHERE YOU GREW UP)
I can't wait to go home. I'm not even going home next week. I'm going to stay and train. When I go home, I'm gonna win. They're going to have to snatch me off that field because I'm going to talk so much junk. Man, what's that guy's name that played for the 49ers?
I'm going to be the Terrell Owens of Syracuse football.
