    This year we added Thomas Akyazili (Belgium) and Kenan Guzonjic (Bosnia-Herzegovina).

    Considering that we have a message board that couldn't handle Gonzalez, we need to come up with some nicknames or we're going to be in a world of sh!t. Plus, I really don't want to try to type all those letters ever time.

    So, we need nicknames.

    Propose them here.

    You don't even want to type all the letters for "every" every time. Lazy.

    Maybe pictures would help inspire us. I need to see what they look like, as maybe they're those kind of guys who should have nicknames based on how they look.

    Haven't seen enough to know if speed is one of TA's strong suits, but if so, I like "Kenny and the Jet."

    Assuming TA actually plays beyond his years, as all signs seem to indicate, we could go with "Kenny and the Vet."

    Also like Goose or Gonzo for KG (or just KG for that matter.)

    For Belgian beer fans, Id like to (semi-seriously) nominate "El Leffe" for TA, as an obvious play on "El Jefe," considering he should be leading this team in the near future. (I think both phrases are pronounced similarly...)

    Belgium is known for: beer, chocolate, french fries, waffles, Jean Claude Van Damme, Smurfs

    Not as much for Bosnia-Herzegovina (young country that split from Yugoslavia). Best one is probably Archduke Franz Ferdinand.

    There is only one Goose. At least as it relates to CU basketball.

    We could use a Maverick, though.
