Karlos is here!
What does it mean to you to return to Arizona?
It means a lot. Being a franchise player here two years in a row shows how much I meant to them. Having them open the door and let me back in is a blessing. I'm trying to get my name in the ring of honor.
Karlos, how far do you think Auburn can go in this NCAA Football Ultimate Team voting?
Hey man, I know we can get to the final four. We have GOT to get to the final four, at least! That's the least of it. We have no choice.
What's better, sack/fumble or an INT?
Phew! WOW!! Man....right now, for me, it has to be the interceptions. At this point in my career, INTs are valued very high.
Ar eyou a big video game player?
Yes. Very much so. Halo. Call of Duty. Madden. You name it. I'm somewhat of a gamer.
Karlitos, do you play fantasy football? How do you feel about it?
Fantasy football is crazy. I've never played it. My brother has. He tells me about it all the time and how close he is to winning. I'm just glad that the fans are into it and engage with the players.
how often do you get back to Auburn?
I try to go every other year, at least, on my bye week, if they have a home game. The last couple of years, they've had an away game. Hopefully I can get back into the mix this year.
Any pre-game rituals?
Good question....I have a stretching routine that I do. I do it every game. It's a must that I do it to play at a high level.
If Auburn can't win the Ultimate Team fan vote, which school do you want to win?
I know what you want me to say...I would never say that, because it gets under my skin and makes my skin crawl, if I even mention something about those guys. Read between the lines.
What's the key to a successful Arizona season this yeaR?
I want to say execution and health. We have to be able to execute the game plan and stay healthy. Those are the keys to a successful season.
How excited are you to be back in Arizona?
I'm very excited. I'm very comfortable out here. I know the area like the back of my head. The community is great. The atmosphere is awesome. I feel like I never left.
Welcome home Karlos. With the 9ers and hawks getting all the press as favorites, can y'all sneak up and take the division?
Look. I wouldn't have it any other way. Let them have all of the attention. Once we make our run...hey. We'll make our presence be known. Trust me.
Do you think Auburn has any chance against USC in the first round of this voting?
Man, without a doubt. We beat them. We had that 13-0 season, they didn't want us that year either. We owe them. Perfect way to get back at them.
Do you think about Super Bowl XLIII still?
I think about it every day. How close we were to living out a childhood dream and making it come true. It eats at me every day.
Have you set any goals for yourself this season?
Without a doubt. I have a lot of personal goals and I'll keep them personal. I appreciate you for asking, but I keep them high. I'm going to reach for them. I got close last year.
Coach sets up drill where everyone can choose a position that they normally dont play. The position you would choose and why...
Huh...good question. Great question...I would have to say I'd go back to WR. WR. Get my Calvin Johnson on.
best memory at Auburn?
I have to say 2001, Chik-fil-a Peach Bowl. I intercepted a pass and jumped out of bounds and tipped it back in.
Beating Alabama three times, outweighs that tremendously.
Are you guys confident going into the season does any teams out there give you any goose bumps????
No teams give me goose bumps. I love the challenge. This division has evolved. I'm excited about the season and the opportunity that we have.
Measure ourselves as a team against the others in this division.
War Eagle! Get out there and vote. Let's make it happen. Get to the final four and anything can happen then.
