Because someone has to ask why, eventually. Supposedly, he wasn't "invited" to fall camp -- whatever that means I don't know, but Brian gave some credibility to that in a MGoBoard comment a number of weeks ago. When Gary Yerden came in as a preferred walk-on, then left within weeks, his name vanished from the official roster. So, what's with Bell and is his spot included in the 27-28 spots for the 2012 class?
Why Is Isaiah Bell Still on the Roster?
I am sure MSU is scratching their heads and sending scouts to A2 to spy! LOL
tell them about TV and Internet. If we can keep these from them, then they'll go in blind as to how we are scheming this year!!
Because he's on the team?
wondering the same thing about Denard. However, I used the roster to figure out he's on the team still. Too bad the original poster didn't do the same for the player he had in question.
If Isaiah Bell is keeping his grades up, going to practice, and doing whatever else is asked of him as a UM football player, then we don't need to be questioning why he is on the roster.
He's on the roster because He's a Michigan Man ForChrisSakes.
And that's all you should need to know to not ask why any Michigan Man is on the roster...
I think you mean "Fergodsakes."
Oh, so you know Chris Sakes? Tell him I said hey.
Must have missed that one. He seemed like an interesting walk-on project.
Why is Germany Shultz still posting?
I have a question for you, Germany Shultz...
Bell is a RS sophomore linebacker on the team. When we asked this question in spring Bell was a RS sophomore linebacker on the team. When we asked this question in fall Bell was a RS sophomore linebacker on the team. We could ask this again but the answer would come back "he is a RS sophomore linebacker on the team."
Isaiah Bell has a scholarship to the University of Michigan as a member of the University of Michigan football team, thus he is listed. The latest news on him is he switched his number to 34 this year.
He's on the team but apparently hurt or not good enough to earn playing time
This board is going to become impossible to read if we get a separate thread for every sophomore who hasn't played asking why they are on the roster.
...I think it is because no one has seen him in a practice video or on the sidelines during a game.
MRob has played, Furman on special teams, Simmons on special teams, Herron had a huge first game and got hurt, Gordon has been seen and gets asked about every day, Rico Miller has played, Mealer and Ash have played.
Isaiah Bell and Mike Cox have seemed to disappear from everything so people wonder why we haven't see them even on the sidelines during a game, let alone running around when we're up 50+ on Minnesota.
The coaches aren't saying. I have less contact with insiders and the coaches than Brian/Ace/Heiko so I'll leave it to them to answer if they know any more. I've asked because of the reasons you stated. The answers I get are the ones above.
Why are you posting on the MGoBoard ?
