    want them to talk about me, that I one of the best in the country, if not the best, Carter said in July at Pac 10 Media Day. compete for that No. 1 spot. I going to shock people. They know I decent. They not going to say I good. who was recently selected to the Butkus Award preseason watch list, is easily the Bruins best linebacker of the past five years. A standout season in 2009 could make him one of the school best of all time.
