Nebraska has a 7' center from Serbia named Vucetic.   Is he scheduled for a red-shirt year this year or is he just way behind ability-wise to play/contribute this year?   The Box Scores indicate he hasn't played yet this year.  Anyone know his status?

I thought that he had played and will not redshirt this year.  NU is too thin in the middle.  Big Andre doesn't look like he can make it all year without getting hurt.

My mistake if he has played and can not red-shirt this year. That being said, does anyone have anything to report about how he looks in practice, can he contribute positively at all this year, etc?

The exhibition game against Midland doesn't count, and I don't think he's played other than that yet.

The Southern Box score shows that he played 1 minute in that game.  Valpo shows 0+ and UNO doesn't show him at all.  I am positive that I saw him in at the end of the 1st half of the Valpo game, but am not positive.

Repeat question. Anyone know whether he can contribute this year? Rumors on how he looks in practice, etc.?

i would guess his contribution will be minimal at best.  he has ALOT of bulking up to do. Ideally, he would redshirt, but its not an option this year with the thin roster.  I'd look for him to redshirt next season and use this season as a chance to just get the experience of US game.  I consider him a longterm investment, altho one i think can panout nicely in a few years.  i just dont consider him a 3-4 year contributor.

Still has a chance to come down with some crazy "season ending injury" and redshirt as long as he doesn't play in more than 20% of the team's games

He played in the first game, but only a few minutes.  Miles said he was taken to the hospital for a heart issue.  Sounded like he was not in immediate danger, but nothing was further elaborated.

So the quirky season ending injury is still a likely possibility

He has played in two games. 1 minute in one, and about 40 seconds in the other. He did go to the hospital, but he is okay and can play. Miles has stated he has a long ways to go in terms of conditioning and being able to contribute. I think he should at least be getting some playing time.
