    allen bell?

    how deep in the doghouse is he? is he down to 4th string now with banks back? i thought he would really help this defense out after playing decent last year.

    the 2 freshmen are playing well for us, and i definately think they have earned their playing time, and i really like what banks brings to the table, i just wish he didn't have his arm in a cast. and then theres mcdowell and singleton.

    did he even play yesterday? did he blow his knee out and i missed something on here or is there more to this story?

    anyone with any insight?

    Not a fan of Bell personally. I think we have guys that are better than he is.

    Would we be like nebraska and play more dbs and one less linebacker since everyone passes? Oh, that would be CHANGE...

    IMO, Bell is the best corner on this team. I am baffled as to why he is not playing. The same way I am baffled that the guy with the most sacks on the team doesn't start.

    Bell lacks ball skills and catch-up ability. Plus, our other corners hit better.

    I think Banks is the best CB on the team, but thats just me.

    . Coach Chizik always tends to play the players who are not the best for the position.

    Ah yes, the 'coach is always right' argument. Strong work outta you for breaking it out.

    Same rationale as running a 3 yard slant pattern on 3rd and 7?
