    Very sad indeed. When I think of Todd Bell I always think of him stripping Charles White of the ball in the '80 Rose Bowl to keep us in the ball game. He was always around the ball, always hustling, always making big plays. Go #25!

    Very sad indeed and he was making a great contribution in his present job. A great Buckeye. God bless Todd, go well.

    A blocked punt vs.
    Michigan in 1979, resulted in a TD
    by Todd Bell. This lead Ohio State to
    an undefeated regular season.

    It's always sad to hear about tragedy anywhere but even more so when it's a fallen Buckeye. RIP Todd. And condolences to the entire Bell Family in this tragic time.
