vs, Boise State
At least give me credit for my stuff
vs. Notre Dame
Who cares eff him lol.
What's amazing is that bell is so effective at his at 240 lbs. He is going to keep doing it to as long as guys keep coming at him low. What an athlete, That's hard enough without football pads on.
It just makes me giggle with joy seeing him do that.
Post as if your wife was sitting on my lap.
In the first gif, I love the look on the IU cheerleader's face standing to the right of the ladder.

A 180-190 lb DB can't try to tacke him high or they'll bounce right off, so they have to keep going low. That's what makes it a legit move, and not just a high school gimmick that looks good on YouTube. *cough* McGuffie.
I like the way the guy looks back trying to figure out where he went.
Can't remember his number - but there was that one CB that was Bell's little bitch all day - dude was trucked at least 4 or 5 times.
This. How many CB's are gonna tackle Bell high and live to tell about it?
The really amazing part of that move is two fold. First, how freaking high he gets, but more impressive to me is the timing required to hurdle a moving object. Its one thing to hudle that high over something stationary, but to time that so the defender has no chance of standing up and still clearing them really is quite remarkable.
There was a run in the first q where you could tell Bell was thinking hurdle and the db stayed high instead to prevent that. Dude got run over by Bell instead.
Every db going up to tackle him has that to deal w now because it is a legit move for him. Go low and get leaped over or go high to prevent that and get on espn highlights for best stiff arm by a rb.
Didn't he hurdle some people last year too?
Yup. You know they are 100% aware of the hurdle move, are coached on it and no DB wants to be on Bell's highlight reel getting hurdled...but the second they ehsitate and try to go high, they are getting Trucked. At that time, Bell has no less than 5 yards of a full head of steam, and those DBs have already hit him and felt him at other times. Better to get jumped over than knocked the F out.
LOL @ cheerleader 3rd from the right.
If Lippet had the blocking skills and tenacity of Keith Nichol, he would have easily taken out two of the defenders and knocked them into the third defender for a clearer path. He has had that whole matador blocking going on and it certainly does not help Bell.
The amazing thing about his leaps are that he is so quick with the move, you dont see a lot of stutter stepping to get vertical. Bell does it in stride and like others have said he is already looking at the next defender.
Best leap I had seen before by a Spartan had to have been Lorenzo White vs Wisky in the snow at Camp Randall. Had the black and white on in the dorm room watching it. After that drawing a blank until Linthicum did it over a db.
Saw that during the game...I was impressed that she was impressed and aware of that play. Seems like a lot of times when the camera shows the cheerleaders they are barely paying attention to the game action.
Someone with gif skills should make one of him jumping the NW player and another of the Iowa player last year. Both jumps can be found on Pietrang's Le'veon Bell Heisman video. I wanted this morning but every time I tried it failed.
I think the ND was the best and most impressive of them all. A rare highlight from an otherwise depressing game.
