Somewhere Wonder Monds is shaking his head.

It seems Nebraska standout receiver Kenny Bell lost a bet and ... shaved his once-substantial Afro.

Well, it's a slow news day, so here goes ...

This bit of "news" broke via the Husker senior's Twitter account, @AFRO_THUNDER80:

"Lost a bet and my brother made me shave the fro. Gonna have to change the twitter handle now"

Monds was a heck of a defensive back for Nebraska in the mid-1970s, out of Ft. Pierce, Fla. Like Bell, he was distinguished by his substantial Afro.

Will Bell grow back his 'fro in time for preseason camp in early August?

Good luck handling such suspense.

(UPDATE, 1:20 p.m. Wednesday: Speculation persists that Bell didn't actually shave off his Afro, that he has created a hoax... To which I say: The season can't arrive quickly enough).
