In one of the least shocking developments of the week David Bell has been named the Big Ten’s Co-Offensive Player of the Week after his dominating effort against Iowa in Purdue’s 24-20 season opening win. Bell had 13 receptions for 121 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winner with 2:15 left. This only added to his tormenting of the Hawkeyes after he caught 13 passes for 197 yards and a score in Iowa City last year.
What can I say. David Bell loves setting the Iowa secondary on fire.
Bell was, of course, the Big Ten’s Freshman of the Year last season and won that Weekly honor four times vs. Maryland, Iowa, Northwestern, and Wisconsin. He was also a Freshman All-American and an honorable mention all-Big Ten selection.
(whispers quietly, seductively)
He hasn’t really played a game with Rondale Moore yet.
(returns to normal voice).
Once Mr. Moore returns (hopefully this week at Illinois) the Big Ten will tremble because Milton Wright had a great week too.
