The Observer asks 10 questions of Panthers offensive lineman Bruce Campbell, who came to Carolina during the offseason via a trade with Oakland, as the Raiders visit Bank of America Stadium on Sunday:
Q. What do you think about facing these guys and what do you remember about your time in Oakland?
Im actually excited about playing the team that I got traded from (for RB Mike Goodson). My time there, I had a decent time. But hey, line up on Sunday, youre enemies on the field and friends after.
Q. What was your highlight in Oakland?
(Laughs) I really didnt do too much out there but special teams. I dont know. Highlight?
Q. Did you like living out there?
Its a decent life. Its different. Different from the East Coast. It was a good change for me to see something different in life.
Q. Are you disappointed you havent gotten more work here this year?
I want to play. But playing guard for two years and having to come back and get used to being out in space and playing tackle, I fully understand. Im just playing my role. Cant really complain too much about that.
Q. I know youve been active a few weeks. Have you been on the field much?
I was goal-line tight end and I was on field goal when I was active.
Q. Were you an eligible receiver?
Yeah, one play. There was one time I did actually almost go out, but I didnt go out for a route.
Q. What did you think about Maryland leaving the ACC?
I guess change is good for everybody. I mean, its hard. Thats why I went (to Maryland) for the ACC. I just think its going to be something to get used to, people asking, what school did you go to? Maryland theyre in the ACC. Nah, theyre not in the ACC no more. So its going to be different.
Q. There are no natural rivalries for them in the Big Ten.
No. I cant even tell you a Big Ten school.
Q. Was Oakland as rough as some people make it out to be?
Not really. Oaklands a good town, man. Its a little rough in areas. But youve got natural respect for your environment after hearing so much about it.
Q. What will Raiders fans be doing and wearing when they show up at Bank of America Stadium?
Theyre going to be in Oakland stuff. You might catch a couple people face-painted, a couple people in masks, (shoulder) pads. Its all what the stadium allows. If they allow mask and pads, then people are going to be wearing them.
