    Altitude can be tough on fat folks.

    6'11" 315 lb C Andre Almeida. Averaging 14.8 minutes a game.

    With the ongoing construction, are we able to get emergency vehicles into and out of the Keg if something happens to this guy?

    When I've been at games, they have always had one or two ambulances right outside the Southwest doors (the entrance for season ticket holders). So gurney taken into the building, to the elevator, down to the floor level and back up and out if he needs it.

    altitude won't bother him inside the building, Doc Sadler said so.

    315 is some bs too, I really doubt he's lost that much weight. He's sucking air after 8 minutes of running in Lincoln, so I'm not really sure how he is going to play in Boulder. Although, when he is in, he will undoubtedly destroy Roberson or Dufault.

    I'll bet he only plays 10 minutes instead of his 14 min. season average.

    I hope fatboy plays the whole game. Burks can climb him and dunk from atop his enormous skull.

    Alameida and Diaz embarrassed us in Lincoln. Got to impose our style on these guys so this fatass can't stay in

    Students got a nice chant going. "Truffle Shuffle" when he was at the free throw line.

    Trent also got put in for a bit so we could bang with him a little more. Pretty good senior night for him.

    There were a couple times when he was on the floor and guarding andre, i could not understand why we would just give the ball to andre at the top of the key and have him blow right past this fatty.

    Where the **** does Sadler find these goons. Husker fans were trashing Diaz for how he played last night, I think he's pretty good...

    A college friend from Nebraska says the radio guys call him "El Grande Andre" but I prefer the nickname I came up with...."All You Can Eat-A Almeida"
