12/7/09 - Mr Everything

CJ Spiller - he may have gotten snubbed on the invite to NY for the Heisman, but we still want to show love for the best player in college football, bar none. As a Canes fan, I watched up close how dominant Clemson's all-world, all everything RB/WR/KR was when he ran by a pretty fast Miami defense for 310 total yards in what has basically become just another Saturday for the senior. In the ACC championship game on Saturday he literally ran himself into the ground as his leggs wobbled and looked weak late in the 4th qtr at the end of a game where he'd been Clemson's star running back, star wide receiver and star kick returner all at the same time. Spiller also seems to be a super nice guy, who has won over the usually uppity fans in Death Valley who tend to expect more than they really are entitled to at Clemson. He's so popular that they have already planned to actually retire his number 28 and he hasnt even played his last game yet. We know taking RB's super high in the draft is usually a recipe for disaster, but if there is one guy coming out this year that we'd burn a top pick on its CJ.
