CJ Spiller: I’m Still a Tiger at Heart

Posted by on September 14, 2012 – 10:53 am

Hey Bills fans!

For those who follow me on twitter, you know how big of a Clemson fan I am.

Every time you can see your alma mater do well it’s great. I know a lot of the guys that are still on the team and of course with the coaching staff – they helped me out both on and off the field. To see them be successful now means a lot … and it gives me bragging rights in the running back room.

I keep in touch with the Clemson guys – coach Swinney and I communicate when we can. Coach sent me a text after the game Sunday congratulating me on a career day (I was even nominated for FedEx Ground Player of the Week!). Whenever we have a bye week, I usually try to get down to Clemson to catch those guys and hangout. It’s good to see some old faces.

As far as trash talking and bragging rights go, we’re all pretty even. Corey McIntyre has the bragging rights on me right now because his West Virginia team dismantled mine in the Orange Bowl last year. But right now, Clemson is 2-0, Fred Jackson’s Coe College team is 2-0 and West Virginia is undefeated … so we’ve been taking it pretty hard on Tashard Choice (Georgia Tech) because his team lost.

Next week when we’re on prime time TV I need my Tigers to come through because I’ll never hear the last of it after the game!
