On Nick Bell’s passing

It’s hard to believe that Nick Bell started in the Georgia game just a few weeks ago.  Just a sad, terrible reminder about how unfair life can be sometimes.

Here’s hoping those close to him can find some peace with it.  If you’re interested, here’s the information about Bell’s memorial fund:

The MSU athletic department will establish a memorial fund for the Bell family through the Bulldog Club. More details will be made available at mstateathletics.com, and donations can be made by calling (662) 325-3074. The school will also send messages and cards to the family, and those can be mailed to P.O. Box 5308, Mississippi State, Miss., 39762.

    Wow, that’s shocking for a young man to lose his life so quickly from cancer. Thoughts and prayers to his family, friends and teammates.

    Rest in peace, Nick Bell. What a stunning and tragic thing. He literally performed as an athlete at one of the highest levels just weeks ago, and now he’s gone. It puts wins and losses into perspective.

    We may beat each others brains in weekly (and talk shit about each all year long), but when one of our SEC brethren is hurting, we all close ranks and lend moral support unlike anywhere else.

    RIP #36. We all salute your courage.

    It’s such a tragedy for a young life to be cut short at just 20 years. My heart goes out to the family, friends, and teammates of Nick Bell.
