    Bo Williams

    The hype surrounding Bo has really died down from the winter to the spring. I was just wondering if he has lost the starting job. Will he be seeing more or less carries than Arob and Schwartz? The hype surrounding him has just really died, and I just hope he doesnt sit on the bench all year.

    Re: Bo Williams

    how could he lose the starting job he never had? He is coming off of sitting out a year...guessing he needs some time to get going again and establish himself with the coaches. If he's that good, he'll be fine.

    I don't think that it was ever said that he would have the starting job. Now, people on here probably made that comment, but that's it. That said, I think that he really has his work cut out for him if he's going to pass ARob on the depth chart.

    Bo left Florida for a reason, but he could still be really good here.

    I really hope so. He had 4 stars out of high school (Not that stars mean anything) which means he was better coming out of highschool.

    Re: Bo Williams

    We have plenty of talent at RB, and if Bo is that good, he will play. As usual, we had plenty of people here annointing him the next Heisman winner. Rule: when an athlete sits out a year at ISU and becomes extremely hyped, they do not come close to hyper's expectations. See: Lucca Staiger.

    I think Bo is a good player, and will see some quality minutes. Don't think he'll beat out A-Rob for the starting spot right away.

    I just hope he gets his fair share of carries.

    Re: Bo Williams

    ARob has yet to make it through a whole season intact. The last two years, he got hurt early and didn't get back to full strength until the last few games. Schwartz is a bull, but I don't know that he fits into the offense all that well as an every down back. Assuming that they want to redshirt the freshmen, IMO Bo is going to get plenty of carries eventually.

    Maybe the hype about Bo Williams has died down because anyone who as actually seen him run has been blinded by his speed or killed by his powerful stiff arm.

    I hope the best back gets the carries. I could care less who was getting the carries.

    It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    Re: Bo Williams

    From what I've read, it seems like the staff is really high on Williams running ability, but his pass blocking needs a lot of work. I'm confident we'll see him on the field at some point.
