Spiller was the only back in the nation to record a TD. in every game this yr.
Another interesting fact: Out of 55 total college games, he's only had 12 games of 100+ yards rushing. Of those 12 games, 5 of them came his freshman year.
Also, thoughout his college career, he's only carried the ball 20 times or more in 5 games. Of those 5 games, he went over 100 yds in 4 of them [best game: ('09 vs GT) 20 car, 233yds 4TDs].
You could argue this thing either way. He hasn't quite proven that he can carry the load, but he has proven that he can be productive when given the opportunity and he's managed to stay relatively injury-free. So, he appears pretty durable, as well...
Those stats are still a bit misleading considering he shared the ball with James Davis for three seasons. As good as he was during those first three years as a change of pace guy, I think he definitely performed his best in his senior season as the featured guy, especially with a rookie QB and rookie OC helming the offense.
Plus, compiled those remarkable stats with playing through a turf toe injury this yr.
