    I agree with you Col.Reb.I see Kyle having a huge year next season with around 1400 yards or so.He is the total package.What else could you ask for in a running back.I hope they can win their bowl game.It will be tough as Navy leads the nation in total rushing offense.

    Here is another great article on Bell.He had the most yards rushing ever by any CSU Sophmore and the 5th highest total ever for a CSU Running Back.Kyle had a outstanding year considering he didn't even start until the 3rd game of the season!Way to go Kyle!I hope he runs all over Navy.It is going to be a very close game.

    I too can't wait to see Kyle run the ball tomorrow night. We have two decent games from a caste prespective in the Las Vegas Bowl and the Poinsettia Bowl. I will be recording both! I hope Kyle gets 200 yards!

    KEENESBURG - She watches the game, tight, nervous, smiling, counting the yards down, writing the numbers on a program.</span>




    144 yards to break the record ...</span>




    Marie and Dave Bell are in the stands on this cool
    October evening, watching their son Kyle rush toward the all-time state
    record. They are here, with uncles and aunts and grandmas and grandpas.
    It's the Bell section of the stands right now.</span>




    The game begins and Brush keeps the ball for half
    the first quarter. Still 144 yards to go. Marie hasn't written anything
    on the program yet.</span>




    Exactly 6.7 miles southwest of this stadium, down a
    dirt road, across from the black mailbox, is the Bell farm. The modern
    ranch-style home is surrounded by fields of huge sunflowers, now dry
    and heavy with seeds, ready for harvest. It's where the Bell family -
    Dave and Marie, Kyle the senior and Holly the sophomore - live and work
    and play together.</span>




    Kyle runs a kickoff back for a touchdown, but it still doesn't count for his rushing yards.</span>




    Dave and Marie Bell seem to have somehow found the
    secret. Their son is not only the best rusher in the state right now,
    but he's also an A student. His little sister, Holly, also gets
    straight A's in school and is a manager of the football team. "People
    have asked us what the secret of raising kids is, and we really don't
    know," said Dave. "We're just lucky to have two good kids."</span>




    It's now halfway through the second quarter and
    Kyle only has 16 yards. Brush has kept the ball so long, he hasn't had
    many chances to rush.</span>




    In the school next to the stadium, close to the the
    overflowing trophy case, is a fold-out photo display of Weld Central's
    best athletes back through the years. On this night, the pages are open
    to David Bell, 1978. Running back, all-state. When he was in school,
    Dave set a record for the most rushing yards in one year. His son broke
    it when he was a freshman.</span>




    Halftime, and Kyle only has about 35 yards. People
    are starting to say he isn't going to make it. His dad sits silent, but
    he knows. His mom is nervous, optimistic.</span>




    "I guess we first began to see he might be good
    back in the seventh grade," Dave says. "We knew he was a good athlete
    when he was young, and we knew he was fast. I was pretty fast in high
    school, but he's fast and big and quick."</span>




    In the third quarter, the yards begin. 10 yards, another 10, 12 yards, slowly, slowly, Kyle starts closing in.</span>




    Marie is a secretary at the elementary school and
    Dave farms. They want their kids to stay busy at school, active in
    everything, not just sports. "We also want them to do well with their
    grades," Marie says. Both kids have straight A's.</span>




    In the fourth quarter, the end is coming close. with 7:42 left in the game, he has 125 yards.</span>




    Two hours ago, before the game started, the road to
    this isolated school looked like the closing scenes of "Field of
    Dreams." Headlights, all in a row, coming from different directions
    toward the school out in the prairie.</span>




    With 6:25 left in the game, Kyle's parents, his
    sister, his girlfriend Michelle Malone come down from the stands,
    waiting for the final moment. Kyle has 10 yards to go.</span>




    The stands are full, people standing along the
    fence, people standing along the track. They're asking, "How many more
    yards?" "What's he got?" "How close?"</span>




    Kyle is down to just a few yards, everybody knows.
    One friend shows two fingers to Dave, pacing the sidelines, meaning
    Kyle has two yards to go. He loses yards on the next two plays.</span>




    There's 3:14 left in the game, and Brush gets the ball.</span>




    Neither mom nor dad can stand still now, Brush is
    driving the ball, eating up the clock, Their son probably won't make it
    tonight. But there's hope. Marie sits against the fence, lowers her
    head, looks up, stands up. She knows. "He 's gonna make it," she says.</span>




    Weld Central has the ball, less than a minute. Kyle
    carries once, carries again. His family in the stands are cheering.
    They know. Finally, 35 seconds from the end of the game, Kyle rushes
    around the right end, churns up the yards and makes it.</span>




    Mom and dad and Holly and Michelle are on the field
    now, and Kyle hugs each of them, handing the ball to his dad. He raises
    one finger. Cheers flood the field.</span>




    Afterward, asked if she's proud of her brother, Holly turns and says, "How does it look?"</span>




    She's smiling, but tears are running down her cheeks.</span>

    wow, what a great start for Kyle! he has 23 yards on 5 carries and a TD on their first possesion! good job by his QB and TE to set Colo State with that good field position...

    plus the announcers are raving about Kyle: "sensational kid, been great for Rams, carries the ball exceptionally well for a young player, tough as nails, good guy etc..."

    Man alive, whats next? Flying monkeys? This is unreal. Kyle would have made a lot of news and highlight reels. I hope he recovers quick as he can.

    Well now they have an excuse to cut him from training camp in 2008, they can just point back to his ACL injury and say that he is "suspect." Did we really think he was going to be given a non fullback spot in the NFL?

    The only good news is that he will be granted a medical redshirt for this season.Kyle will have two years remaining to play college football.He will have to basically start from scratch though to try and prove his health and durability.It happened on a very hard tackle to the knee on the 2nd to the last play of practice.You talk about bad luck.In a game is one thing but to have your teammate do it to you is disgusting.

    yeah, but that's just bad luck... most injuries occur during training, in my opinion... all the best wishes and good luck to Kyle!

    Draft Daddy just predicted this will be the excuse the NFL needs to bulk
    him up and make him a fullback.

    Wow guess I won't be looking forward to watching Colo St play this year now. The sh*t ass CB who made the season ending tackle says he "thought it was a normal tackle and Bell was fine". Yeah right what a bunch of b.s. Watch this new RB in Bell's place pull a Kenny Irons and never look back at the bench. Kyle will be just another Tre smith rotting away on the bench.

    Gartrell Johnson III 102 286 2.8 6
    Nnamdi Ohaeri 76 259 3.4 0

    All the Utah sports media has been talking about in regards to CSU is the loss of Kyle Bell. It is nice to see him getting credit for making them a much better team. Of course, they did lose a great receiver last year. The only thing I hate to hear is that Sonny Lubick is getting too old to coach, like Fisher DeBerry. They aren't in my book, if for no other reason than they play whites. Lubick is just suffering from a lag in good recruits and injuries right now. It will get better, and I can't wait to see Kyle Bell run again in Cougar stadium next year!

    yeah those recruits are lagging for CSU [​IMG]

    let's hope that Bell will come back and have a good enough season to warrant a roster spot in NFL!

    Are you guys saying the injury was on a cheap tackle by his teammate? That is pretty bad to hit a guy hard and low like that in practice, but I'm sure his teammate feels terrible, it was obviously not his intent to hurt him. He mustespecially feel bad with the way Gartell Johnson is running them to loss after loss. Hopefully Kyle will come back even stronger next season...[​IMG]Edited by: ToughJ.Riggins

    With Kyle Bell being far and away the best athlete on the team, I doubt it was done intentionally, but you never know. Sabatoging a season might not be too high a price to pay to keep a white man from carrying the rock.

    How have you been Colonel_Reb?Hopefully all is well up there in Utah.Byu had a great year.They might play ASU in a Bowl game or Oregon I believe.Go Cougars.

    I can't wait for the summer/fall to see Kyle Bell back in action.I haven't been as excited about any running back since Luke Staley.I was the first one to alert the Caste Board about Bell and he hasn't dissapointed aside from the freak injury.This kid is special and next year will be alot of fun.He will help put the Rams back into Bowl Contention.

    I've been pretty well, white lightning, and thanks for asking but I'll be glad when I can home for a bit. Thankfully that will be just over 2 weeks away!

    I think Bell is even more talented than
    Leonard.. I think Jared Hawkins, Kevin Harris
    and Tre Smith may be as well,
    but are/ were under-utilized. Leonard is
    good, but he gets the help of
    hype from the NY big media market
    making him seem like he's the only white
    RB with true talent . Believe me
    he's far from the only one but he's
    the only one with a serious chance
    to be drafted in the top 2
    rounds of the NFL draft at this
    point...

    If Kyle Bell comes back strong I
    could see him as a third or
    4th round pick in '08 or '09, he's really
    a late first round talent though but will be undervalued because he's
    white . Bell to me is alot like the Giants Brandon Jacobs who's been
    unbelievable spelling Tiki this year. Tre Smith has
    already written his script as caste
    system victim, but maybe we could
    see Kevin Harris and Jared Hawkins
    taken as day one picks if they are
    given a chance in college...This is
    probabley just wishful thinking though. [​IMG]



    Are their any other guys you'de add to the list of white talent with NFL potential to get carries?
