I was torn on him Saturday. In one sense I felt like our running game needed a boost Saturday but in another sense I didn't feel comfortable throwing Bo out there in that type of game for his first action. Schwartz wasn't playing great but at least he wasn't turning the ball over or anything. A fumble out of the RB position would have been deadly.
Somewhere along the lines we need to get that young man on the field. Especially when A-Rob isn't healthy.
What more do you expect out of a freshman power back against the best d-line in college football? Schwartz did fine, all things considered, and I think we see Blankenship on saturday, even if A-Rob is healthier. It was all about security and protection this weekend.
In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
This past saturday the way the game was playing out I had major doubts he would play. If we were falling behind and we needed something maybe explosive then I thought maybe we would see someone else. But we were never really behind. SO it made sense to stick with what we were doing. Had they scored a touchdown or two I wouldhave guessed the offense would have opened up a bit and maybe threw in a different running back or two.
