A run-down of sporting stories from yesterday covering Nebraska athletics, the Big Ten and around the world.
First, from Scott Enyeart (@scottenyeart) we have an interview with Nebraska 2013 commit Johnny Stanton after the Elite 11 camp. Tip of the hat to Brian Floyd for passing it along and of course to Mr. Enyeart for taking the time to do this interview.

The Opening Ceremonies are Friday.
A review of the rather checkered history of the modern Games from the Mothership.
