    What's the deal with Bo Williams?

    Really that bad that he's getting beat out by a true frosh?

    In trouble?

    injured?

    Or, which I hope is true, is the coaching staff moving him to defense?

    Put your best athletes on defense and let the rest fall into place. Our LB corp is really thin after this year and could really see him making the 2 deeps if he can tackle at all. Just a thought.

    But really......anyone know whats going on here? For a guy who had over 30 different schools offering him when he transfered there has to be something else going on here.

    Re: What's the deal with Bo Williams?

    What are the 30 different schools that offered him? Also, how do you know he's the one of the best athletes on the team?

    When Bo Williams plays Oregon Trail his family does not die from cholera or dysentery, but rather roundhouse kicks to the face. He also requires no wagon, since he carries the oxen, axels, and buffalo meat on his back. He can carry more than 100 pounds of meat back to his wagon. He always makes it to Oregon before you.

    Re: What's the deal with Bo Williams?

    the 30 schools thing was mentioned when he first transfered here. I think Chizik said it, so who know's. As far as him being the best or one of the best.....I don't know that, but Florida sure thought he was a pretty damn good one and I think they won the Nat'l Championship last year. I don't know?

    He seems to be happy even if he is 4th string

    Re: What's the deal with Bo Williams?

    When everyschool in the country offers you im going to guess and say that he is a damn good athlete. If they arnt going to play him at RB then switch him to defense and start having him learn the LB roles. We cant waste an athlete like bo just like we did with bates (even tho it was probably stubburn bates who didnt want to make the switch)

    Re: What's the deal with Bo Williams?

    If he doesn't like contact as a RB, then I don't think a move to the defensive side of the ball is really going to matter.

    our staff is probably doing the same thing with him as with our playbook - not going to reveal until the real season starts! Why show your best stuff against the crap teams we've played so far?
