He pouted and said something about needing more shots. Thus he didn't play.

From what I've heard - and it's third-hand, I haven't talked to any coaches about this - Bell was the type of kid that gives transfers a bad rap. Set in habits, didn't adjust to his role with more talented teammates and opponents.

Bello is the opposite, apparently.
I would have never guessed that. Bell seemed like a guy with really solid character. I figured Brown and Pressey were the two biggest headcases. On one hand, I applaud Haith for not throwing him under the bus publicly. A lot of coaches would. However, the holistic lack of discipline for the team falls largely upon his shoulders.

I said last year that I don't think the players respect him. Perhaps 2012-3 was just a bad brew.
