Confident Bell getting more playing time at CB

Today's newspaper story is on cornerback T'Sharvan Bell. Here's how it starts:
AUBURN, Ala. — The start wasn’t by design. Auburn cornerback T’Sharvan Bell stood on the sideline against Louisiana-Monroe, ready to rotate into the game at some point in the first quarter.

But starter Neiko Thorpe got clobbered running across the field on the Tigers’ first kickoff.

“He got jacked pretty good,” said Bell, who got the start in his place. “His eyes were wandering.”

Despite the last-second change, there was no dropoff. Bell, a third-year sophomore, is essentially a third starter at cornerback for the Tigers, part of a three-man rotation with Thorpe and Demond Washington.

Bell finished with five tackles and a pass breakup against ULM. He has 12 stops, a half tackle for loss, two pass breakup and a fumble recovery this year, seeing his role increase with time.
