November 14, 2007
November 14, 2007, Greencastle, Ind. - DePauw University football is the subject of two questions in a football quiz created by NBC Sports.com. One question asks, "Monon Bell is..." and offers the following choices: "A) A 300-pound DePauw offensive lineman; B) A 300-pound trophy going to the winner of the DePauw-Wabash game; C) What a southern gentleman says should he encounter Belle in the morning." The answer is, of course, B.
Another question in the column, which is posted at the Web site of Atlanta NBC affiliate WXIA-TV, asks, "Spud Dick... A) gave Russia an early advantage in the Cold War space race; B) is a quarterback, though shockingly, not in the SEC; C) was the UFR's high school nickname." As fans of Tiger football know, Gerry "Spud" Dick (#18) is the sophomore who has started at quarterback for DePauw the past two seasons.
