    Bo Williams

    Does anyone think that Bo Williams would have a shot at playing deffense? I think there is so much talk of him moving down on the depth chart and everyone else improving i wonder if he could give linebacker or saftey a try?? Just a thought!

    Geez guys we haven't even seen him run with the ball yet.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: Bo Williams

    i just really question if he has the hands to be an effective option in this offense.

    Well, you know, there may be times that we actually have a lead, and are trying to run out the clock. Then, a good sized back with some speed makes for an effective option, hands or not.

    The chances of him just starting to play linebacker right now and being a worth a damn at it are roughly 0.

    Hopefully Herman will use the weapons that Bo provides in any way he can.
    I think TH will do that.

    You need more than 2 RBs.

    This. He didn't get a full ride to Florida for sucking. Is he a prototypical back for this system? No, but Herman has made it very clear that the "system" is more about utilizing the talent available as effectively as possible rather than pounding square pegs into round holes.

    There will be plays drawn up to suit Bo's running style, just like there will be for Schwartz.

    Also, he may not be the featured tailback in the current system because of poor catching ability, but ARob can't play the whole game. Bo will get his chances to run the ball and when he does, I think he will make some things happen. Always a good idea to have multiple types of rushers available.

    exactly. You need at least 3 and really 4 to get through a season.

    Re: Bo Williams

    Bo has rapid acceleration and hits the holes. The guy can flat out run. I still believe he will be a factor for us this season. He's a game player.
