University of Colorado fans still can't believe former coach Dan Hawkins overlooked Kenny Bell in the recruiting process, allowing him to escape to Nebraska where he's been killing Big Ten defenses for three years now.
Late in the third quarter against Illinois on Saturday, Bell provided a play-of-the-day kind of catch that will only have them fuming again back in Boulder, his hometown.
Bell went up high and stabbed a pass with one hand, split four defenders and galloped into the end zone where he was promptly flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct because of his celebration.
After making the sensational catch, which caused a member of the ESPN TV crew announcing the game to say 'Are you kidding me?', it might be hard for even Bo Pelini to get upset about a celebration penalty.
