There is so much coverage both locally and nationally on Tyus Jones, Rashad Vaughn and Reid Travis. I could almost fill up a daily Nugz with stories just on those guys.

The big news now is the proposed package deal of Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor.

FOOTBALL (finally, I know)

  • Philip Nelson is profiled by Chip Scoggins as the old man, at 19!
    Nelson dissected his 2012 season in the film room this summer. He has watched every game twice - the first time focused on what plays worked against certain defenses, the second time zeroed in on third downs specifically. He has a stack of notebook binders in his bedroom filled with notes, concepts and opponents' defensive tendencies.

    At the request of coaches, Nelson also identified plays that left him in "funky" situations. For instance, on one play, he had a short underneath route to a receiver moving to his right. But a pass rusher from his right forced him to move to his left, causing an awkward throw. Nelson and the rest of the quarterbacks created their own drill in individual workouts to simulate that exact scenario in case it happens again.
