bit comet tries to send UDP traffic over Tor. Tor doesn't support UDP.

This log shows nothing about possible problems you had with college's proxy.
Try to surf some sites using TBB. Does it working for you?

Esteemed sir:

It is unlikely in the utmost that Tor would begin to support UDP traffic in the near future. If indeed the program "bit comet" (which as has been mentioned above, we would suggest strongly that you not run on our network) requires SOCKS UDP-BIND support, it simply will not work with Tor.

Among the options available to you, we would recommend following the advice given in the links above as the very best. If for whatever reason said advice should be impratical, you might try to configure your application to avoid using UDP entirely. Should that prove impracticable, Tor cannot help that application even to a very limited extent.

yours sincerely etc
