“Not in a meaningful, positive way.” I, frankly, don’t understand your point. I, respectfully, DO think he would have contributed in a “meaningful, positive way.” Perhaps our definitions of “meaningful” and “positive” are different. Andrew has a track record of being a great teammate, and a positive influence on those teammates. I think he would have been an effective mentor to young Mr. Eli Brooks, helping him to understand the nuances of Coach B’s offense. As long as he could have been content with a role as a sort of player assistant coach to the young point guards and only an occasional contributor on the floor for a few minutes at a time, then yes, I think he would have made a fairly valuable contribution, and I think his contribution would have been meaningful. There are many ways to contribute to the program without being on the floor for quality minutes during “crunch time.” Being a great teammate is one of them. Being a good practice player is another. Getting in a teammate’s ear and “pumping” him up when he gets down is another. Perhaps Andrew wouldn’t have been that person, but my observations of him from afar are that he would have been THAT person, that teammate. Perhaps I’m wrong. Perhaps you have “inside” information to which I am not privy. I wish Andrew well. Well, except for Sunday, Feb 18 in Ann Arbor. And I DO hope our fans are respectful. I also wish Andrew, in his attempt to get meaningful minutes on the floor in a college basketball program as a fifth year senior, would have chosen a school outside of the B1G, but that’s really none of my business.
