Bell isn't even transferring - he's just hanging it up. I guess that is ok if his priority is graduating and pursuing his career. Maybe football is just no longer a priority. But McDowell is a head-scratcher.
Both are selfish IMO. I know it stinks that they weren't playing and maybe they deserved more time....but they were going to get it. When they see Sandvig out on the field in a week or two because we keep seeing 5 wide sets, they are going to be kicking themselves
Pretty stupid to quit in the middle of a season. What do you really have to gain? Bell will regret this for the rest of his life as he is done with FB forever and I'm sure his scholarship is gone after semester. Let's see, $17k a semester for out of state tuition gone for skipping out on 7 weeks of playing football? Stupid.
McDowell could have easily been the starting nickleback as soon as next year if Benton moves to CB to replace Banks. If nothing else, tough it out for 7 more weeks and then look at 1AA schools. Absolutely nothing is gained by quitting now. Gotta keep it real, tho.
Besides, who's to say that neither would have played yet this year with the possibility of injuries and the passing offenses we're staring at?
