Nothing wrong with a good possession WR. You do not have to be the fastest guy to run a good clean route, get behind the LB's and in front of the Safety. Not every WR has to be a deep threat.

Says much, and I don't think we'll ever see that kind of blind devotion from a former player in our era.  Although we all did read the "baby Tress" story, which is actually more evidence of fan stupidity than player loyalty.

I feel old now.

Dave and I were in the same class.  He roomed down the hall from me in South Quad.  Congratulations to his son.  I'm sure he's proud as hell.

Welcome aboard, Bo. Glad to have you with us, and you made a good choice. We have had some walk-ons prosper here. Take a look at leading tackler Jordan Kovacs. Hang in there, and show everyone what you can do . . .

Eliminate or at least cool the much need for WRs? If so do we still take one of the four burbridge, Stanford, Thompson or chesson?

Does anyone know if this kid is a preferred walk-on or a walk-on ?  There is a huge difference. Reason I am asking I did a little research on his stats and wasn't very impressed.Seems he is more of a D 3 player ! Also "Bo" is a nick name his name is David Dever ( which means nothing but thought I would put that out here).  Also what will Michigan do now that he has such a serious injury, a torn ACL, means he is out for the season ! This after two broken ankles last year.  Will Michigan still take him as a walk-on or let him go and play D 3 ?

Does anyone know if this kid is a preferred walk-on or a walk-on ?  There is a huge difference  I  did a little research on David Dever ( his nick name is  " Bo") Seems he really is more of a D 3 player. There is nothing wrong with playing at a level you belong at.  My question is does Michigan keep a walk on that has a torn ACL, this coming off two broken ankles last year.  He is out for the season.

When you look at the big picture, there isn't really much difference between a walk on and a preferred walk on.  If he's a preferred walk on he gets to skip a try out or two and might have an easier time getting into UofM.  He can still essentially be cut from the team if the coaches want to.  I've never seen any backlash for a coach cutting a walk on during fall camp.  His dad played for Bo.  Legacies with a sufficient amount of talent generally get the offer of a walk on spot.

Listen here buddy. Bo Dever has been working his ass off to get to where he is. This has been his dream since he was a kid to go to Michigan and play at Michigan. If you have a problem with him receiving this amazing offer why don't you just keep your comments to yourself or man up if you are from LF. You are just jealous that Bo is living out your dream for you. Can't wait till he proves you wrong. So stop trash talking an amazing young man and why don't you go blog about something else. Bo you are going to do amazing things at Michigan. Don't let someone blogger get satisfaction by putting a damper on your dreams! go BO! Prove this person wrong!

If you knew anything at all about this subject you would understand that we need to fill the slots with  players that can add something to are team .  this kid has a history of serious injuries.  Why should we let him take a spot from a better player ?
