    Is that what made him pick Aubie? Early playing time. Never knew that.

    The story about the phone that Coach Bryant called on was priceless.

    Best RB I've ever seen.
    He was a once-in-a-lifetime athlete.

    Watching him play CFB was a little bit like watching Cam Newton or Tim Tebow. You couldn't believe what you were seeing.

    Like Tim ---- and unlike Cam ---- Bo is a class act.

    Ken Donahue recruited him, and he was ours to lose - but supposedly, in an effort to show full disclosure - Donahue told Bo he would probbaly not play till his JR year

    And there was the possibility he would have moved to linebacker as well.

    Yes

    Basically, UA worked to recruit him to AU the last 6 months or so before signing day

    I don't care if he played for the Barn. He is a gifted, freak athlete and I have major respect for him.

    Watched bo "Vincent" in high school and college. Had true breakaway speed. One of the faster running backs ive seen. Not perfect though. He ran too upright, often didn't get as many yards after contant as a 222 lb back should get and wasnt very durable. He missed most of one season at auburn. Was slowed by other injuries and didn't last long in the nfl. There was no discounting he was dangerous with the ball in his hands.

    Best football player I ever saw play in person. I was in awe of his skills, even when they were used against my alma mater in the Iron Bowl. I was at all of his Iron Bowls, but the 2 that stand are are "I waxed the dude" where Dye did not give the ball to Bo near the goal line (I'm still appreciative of that...one of the dumbest play calls in history. ) and the freak show where he dropped ~275 on us. A man among boys that day. I've never seen anything like it.

    Wait...does having seen Bo play mean that I'm old? I'd gripe about that, but I can't recall what I'm arguing about...

    ESPN 30 for 30: You don't know Bo

    Best RB could be a toss up between Bo and Herschel. Best pure athlete could be a toss up between he and Deion. Bo was one of my earliest favorite athletes, barner-status notwithstanding.

    Re: ESPN 30 for 30: You don't know Bo

    Top 3-4 athlete of all time. No doubt. He and Herschel were the most physically talented college RB's ever.

    Bo knows how the pay system worked/works down on the plains.
    Bo knows how to 'keep it down home cuz'
    Bo knows how to keep his mouth shut.

    I don't hate the guy for it, but I don't really care for him either.
