    That's the way I took it. He's seen Akol in practice but Cam Mack got sick right after he got eligible, so he and Yvan are a couple of a guys they haven't seen on the floor yet.

    Nebraska has had its fair share of players who deserve an apology (Benny P and a young Tai Webster come to mind) and it wouldn't surprise me if Thor is next on that list.

    Doc is living his best life as an assistant coach for the school where he used to be the head coach. As odd as that sounds, I'm really happy for him.

    Glynn is still one of my favorite huskers all time. Glad to see him and on his feet in a pro league.

    Big boy money to be on the big boy roster. No 2Way deal, no starting in the GLeague. Good for Roby.

    1.5 million is the largest ever 2nd round salary cap hit for a college player.  I assume that means something similar to that is guaranteed 1.5 million the first year?  Even if not exactly what it means, it has to be a good thing that is the the largest ever for a college 2nd rounder.

    From the GhoperHole.com board moments ago: "These two teams look evenly matched. That might be a bad thing."

    Gophs just don't have a difference maker like Thor on their team.

    Agree.  
    This team should get better as the season progresses: the quality of the product on the court at the end of the season should be dramatically better than at the beginning, assuming reasonably good luck on injuries.
    That’s the direct-opposite from last year, because most of our best talent was returning.

    Yes I wouldn't put too much stock into what happens in Italy. 
     
    1. Its a very new team that is still learning the systems and each other
    2. Only about 10% of the system has been installed so far. So we still dont know who will take it and run and who will struggle when the implementation gets heavier
    3. Right now its just basketball. Theres no added stress from classes and howework. Also, with a new system, new players/roles, and this being a foreign trip im sure our players arent gonna be very well scouted by the opposing teams
    4. We will be down Cam Mack and Yvan Ouedraogo 
     
    Im just hoping for a healthy trip and hopefully four box scores of stats to analyze and nerd out over until football kicks off.

    Both guys fit in, Akol is fun to see since he's from around here. I thought his shot actually looked good and he is super athletic, him just figuring out which position to play and getting more skilled will be huge. He blocked Samari off the backboard to win a scrimmage drill and everyone went nuts, a lot of fun.
     
    Matej has a pure stroke, will be a good guy to have just to keep the ball moving and hit some shots for us.

    Practice thoughts:
     
    1) Dachon looked like the best player on the team as of now. So stinkin' quick and hard to guard/or have him guard you. Jervay, Haanif, and Derrick Walker impressed me as well and Samari and Thor fit right in. 
     
    2) We are about to experience an offensive efficiency and movement we've never seen here before. The way the ball flies around with constant cuts and screens and movement is really a joy to watch. The whole time we were there we only saw 1 mid range jumper, the rest were threes and layups/dunks.
     
    3) Cam and Dalano weren't practicing today.
     
    4) Kevin has some skill, just really needs to get in shape. 
     
    5) Shamiel did not impress me as much as I thought he would, seemed too have a bit of an attitude. 
     
    6) Doc is the man
