Spiller's priceless wisdom

I am all aboard the Spiller train. A couple of my favorite quotes from an ESPN profile last week: "When the Tigers struggled midway through the 2008 season, Spiller watched how Florida's All-America quarterback Tim Tebow rallied his own teammates to the national championship with a rousing postgame speech after a loss to Mississippi. Spiller wondered why he wasn't providing the same kind of inspiration to his own squad. A few weeks later, he was organizing the other leaders on the team to hold a players-only meeting and regain their focus." "My thing is that if you're a ballplayer, then you'll always be a ballplayer," said Spiller, who became the first member of his family to graduate from a four-year college. "But once this is done, I wanted something I could fall back on. And I didn't want to be some 30-year-old guy coming back here to finish up my classes." "I think I really grew in my pass protection. I wasn't responsible for a lot of that [earlier in college] because I had to get on the edge and catch passes. But I wanted to show people I could block. I didn't want anybody to have any questions about my game." So he is an elite talent and someone with a good head on his shoulders who wants to be a complete player. Yeah, I am allllllllllllll aboard the Spiller train.
