    He threw in the towel football wise. I think he may have graduated though on the academic side of things.

    False. He graduated and transferred to Uconn to play fullback. He is eligible to play against us this year.

    This could prove to be interesting.

    Bo Williams' career game on 9-16 approaching like an overloaded freight train on a downhill grade.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that ended up not working out. That's the last I remember anyway.

    I looked and found nothing confirming he was going there. A lot of "I haven't heard it and no one I have talked to knows about it" stuff from UCONN sources.

    He had a great run vs. Texas AM. It looked like he was shot out of cannon.

    It would have been interesting to see what he could have done with more carries.

    Last I heard he was headed to UCONN, but I guess things could have changed as that is the last I've heard of him.

    Hard to do that when he isn't even on there roster. Plus he has shown nothing to have that opinion, and as a FB? The only time I've seen a fullback ever rush for over 100 yards was with Kock on senior day against Mizzou.

    He wouldn't have been anything special. People just hyped him up on this board.

    I completely disagree. I think he could have been very special if we hadn't switched to the spread offense.

    Waste of bytes.

    I wish Bo the best and congrats on graduating. At least he had the chance to play at a higher level than most of us. Sounds like a good kid that doesn't deserve the crap by some of you.

    We ran the spread quite a bit when he was brought in by Chizik, so that point is moot.

    I've always heard two things:
    Bo had a tough time with the playbooks.
    Bo was a great kid and did well school wise.

    A great kid and remember he had a major concussion that set him back last off-season. If I remember right he took in his little brother or sister in and cared for them too.

    Where was the crap? They were valid points.

    Stating facts about Bo makes you a hater. But it's completely fine to state facts and rip on guys that actually contributed while they were here (Arnaud, Garrett, etc).

    Hypocrites.

    Bo was a message board phenom simply because he came from Florida. His big run that people like to rave about was in garbage time in a blowout. Nothing more.

    I wish him well and have nothing against him. I don't care for the people that make him into something he was not.

    This. The hype he received took any hype we heard about our WR corp to another level.
