    If it ain't broke don't fix it. Rants from old men about rants from younger men aside, I do agree with you that Bell was a great Gator who might well have been remembered with fourth statue outside the stadium had he played in a different era. His '85 season was arguably better than Chuck Long who almost beat out Bo Jackson for the Heisman that year.

      I’ve gotten hotter as I’ve aged.

        I have to watch a tendency to get all philosophical, the wise older (57) guy. But I’ve got all my hair and you have to get really close to see the gray.

        But, I’m 50lbs heavier than my best weight (175). I’m committed to knocking 1/2 that off by spring. It creeps up and sticks.

        One thing I admire about Mullen: he has all this “relentless effort” workload yet knocks out a 5-mile run regularly and seems to have life in pretty good balance with his family.

          Bell is 6'3", and you can see his girth in these pictures. If he isn't 300, he's extremely close, and I'm not saying that to be a jerk, just stating a fact.

          I think he really is 300 pounds. Hence, the thread title is just stating reality, not hate.

          Also, several people were offended with my "hardware" question about his time at UF, but no one bothered to answer the question.

          Ummm, yes I did.

          Edit: I guess I should’ve addressed the quantity in question. If I recall correctly, 2 SEC Titles, 1 stolen and 1 blocked by the hypocrite from athens. It wasn’t just him, but he led the campaign.

          Oh, and if you wanna use the bamuh/voles standard for counting MNCs, I think the NYT ranked us #1 at the end of the ‘85 season.

              The title of this thread is beyond childish . Kerwin is a member the University of Florida Athletic Hall of Fame as a "Gator Great".

              "Among the top 100 Gators of the first 100 years of Florida football, the sportswriters of The Gainesville Sun ranked him the No. 26 greatest Gator of all time in 2006."

                Seriously, what does his weight have to do with anything. Does he have s front butt? No? Why the shade?

                    Pretty sure he's only 297.

                      Lets have a weight guess thread and then email him to find out his real weight and see who wins. Maybe some oxbux.

                          Does it matter what his weight is?

                          When he has offenses that can hang 50 and go undefeated y'all worry about a coach's weight?

                              Some of my first gator games that I remember were with Bell. There's an emotional attachment. Not SOS level but he's up there. Gator great, let's not denigrate.

                                Corch gets an automatic like from me with his stories and especially his ramblings. Never stop Coach. Never stop.

                                  Oh... I love Bell. Hope he dominates and makes people look stupid.

                                  Some people don't like the fact that he and Matthews advocate for scoring points instead of running the option.. It is usually people for whom Gator football began with CUM.

                                    Pell throws Bell in against Miami as a raw freshman and the kid damn near leads an upset of Kosar & Co. Had ice in his veins.

                                              Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
