Without a true center as it stands, what kind of minutes do you think the Dove would be getting if he were on the roster? The tempting answer is a sardonic zero, but in all seriousness, I think he'd be seeing major minutes on this year's team.

If nothing else, we'd not have to keep putting Carlton and/or Whaley back into the game 1st half with 2 fouls. Plus, he was a much better positional defender than most remember. Another limited role player who I think would see more time this season is Donnell Beverly.

What a thread title. What a question to pose. I literally lol'd and am nominating this thread for "BY Thread Title of the Year."

I was once tailgating at The Rent and we were out on the air strip with the students. I was with a buddy who I went to basketball games with, and during a basketball game he mentioned that he thought Mandeldove ran really funny. Well, we bumped into Mandledove and my same friend offered him $20 to run a hail mary route because he wanted to see his funny gallop. Mandledove did it and he caught the pass! This was 10+ years ago.

How about Craig Austrie?

Underrated athleticism. If he had better coaching he would be in the rafters at Gampel

I could have sworn Gavin Edwards started more than 5 games in his career. I also forgot Ater Majok started the majority of games in the 2009-2010 season.

Probably. I thought Ater Majok got drafted by the Lakers?
