First, a plug: I'll be doing a series on the football team all week leading up to the main event, a season preview Friday and a game preview Saturday. Check out the early-week features as well.

Nikola Deiter was named the NEC women's soccer defensive player of the week after shutting out Army. She will be a key for the Blue Devils this year, at least until the offense comes around. Actually, all year, since soccer leads don't usually grow big enough to be unaffected by one goal.

Finally, the statistical breakdown of Ken Horton's offense in SI made me feel good, since it validated what I've been saying for a while. This kid isn't just good. He's special. During what has been arguably the greatest 15-year stretch in the history of the men's basketball program at Central, he could very well be the best player to wear the blue and white. A huge year this year could end all doubt. After all, let's not forget his defensive abilities.
