Mocking the Seattle Seahawks Future

Let's not fool ourselves. Ignoring college football is ignoring the Seahawks future.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Clemson running back C.J. Spiller said he was embarrassed by Clemson's 24-21 loss at Maryland.

Spiller rushed for 72 yards on 18 carries, scored a touchdown on a 92-yard kickoff return and established an Atlantic Coast Conference record for career all-purpose yardage.

"I'm embarrassed for us," he said. "We didn't get it done. We're a team that needs to find a way to win."

Sound Ruskell-enough for you? Is Ruskell-enough even the standard anymore?

When not being a humble, team-first leader, Spiller was doing this:

This is a profile I absolutely love: Huge speed, north-south runner that can catch. It's not obvious in this clip, but Spiller is rare-fast. He runs away from DBs like most running backs run away from linebackers. You'll notice too, even when he's dragging guys, he's not making a lot of wacky Knowshon Moreno juke steps. He churns those legs and every field move is forward. Clemson is really struggling. That offense looks like a dog's bollocks. If Spiller slips into the late teens, early twenties, he could be a building block player that contributes as a rusher, receiver and returner.
