I have Vonn Bell's own words:

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — What if Vonn Bell had been given an earlier chance to show what he could do on the back end of Ohio State's defense?

The junior All-American, first-team All-Big Ten performer and soon to be NFL Draft pick, said he weighs that question often.

"It's lingered in my mind," Bell said Monday, stationed at a Fiesta Bowl media table at the Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort. "But it wasn't my time. I was a young guy. Had a lot to learn. I wasn't ready yet."

"I was making plays in practice, but as a young guy you tend to get the calls and signals wrong like, 'What's that? What's going on?'" Bell said. "Try to remember everything and everything's going so fast-paced and you're trying to slow it down. But, it happens.

He definitely showed it in practice, they just wanted to lean on the seniority and minor experience Brown had over Bell.  

You know this how?  Everyone knew Bell had tremendous potential coming in, that's very different than being ready to play at an OSU level right away though.  Bowl prep is most helpful for the young guys coming into their own, is it not feasible that Bell was able to put it all together then and was rewarded with PT because of that?

2017 Jamarco is a borderline 1st rounder, that doesn't mean 2015 Jamarco was.  I don't think they started a converted DT at RT over a better Jones because of Seniority, its more likely Jones wasn't ready yet.

I like him a lot, but I can't agree that a career .303 hitter is the best hitter in baseball history.  One of the best for sure, but I don't think he's above Babe Ruth or Ted Williams.

Would love to see them bring back Kendrick Perkins with the sole responsibility of demolishing Draymond Green every time the Cavs play the Warriors.

Nah, haven't had an NBA jersey since 93.  I don't think there was a trend for what KD did, if there were then Lebron would have joined the Celtics rather than the Heat.

Lebron joined the team that went 73-9 and lost the finals the year before?  Durant showed the world he's a pussy in the offseason, but he'll get his ring so hopefully it was worth it to him.

Is it when the change is accompanied by NCAA Sanctions that the transfer rules change?  I seem to remember schools going through coaching turnover losing players without them having to be released, but I could just be crazy.
