Around the Quad: Shawn Bell is a Hoser
I humbly ask your apology for yesterday's rant on Garret Lewis. While he remains an Enemy of the Blog, I do believe my wit could have been better employed. Like by arranging a foreclosure on his home. Oh well. Today, there isn't much to report, save a few scattered items, thanks to our new Assistant Editor of Research, LoomisBoy, and Google Alerts, which is quite possibly a sign of the Apocalypse. With that, I present news from Around the Quad.

1. Shawn Bell, From Darkhorse Heisman to Canadian Superstar. Before his collegiate career ending injury, Bell had broken nearly all of The B's passing records. Sadly his injury spelled doom for our bowl chances and, more importantly, the A&M game. However, Shawn has emerged in Canada and appears to be doing well for himself, except that the journalists covering the story seem to think he's a black man. Here's a quote from the Vancouver Sun on our beloved QB:
Furthermore, Bell doesn't have a howitzer for an arm. He thrived in college as a game manager who used his smarts and dink and dunk passes to make first downs. Last season, he set single-season records for passing yards, attempts, completions, completion percentage and touchdowns at Baylor, a cap-and-gown school in central Texas that traditionally operates in a different football paradigm than, say, the annual bowl-bound University of Texas Longhorns. A .500 season for the Bears is cause for a parade in Waco, Tex.
