A crazy proposal to solve our problem at the 5


I think it is obvious that our basketball team is not getting enough production from the center position, and even Painter admitted so after the Xavier game. Lawson has the most upside and plays hard, but I can't get over the fact that he played 21 minutes last game and has 0 rebounds, when even little Louie got 4 rebounds on a bad back. (And I haven't mentioned he averages 8 fouls a game) Sandi has flashes of brilliance and long periods of bench-warming. And Carroll is more like a 6'9 jump-shooter who has been getting mercilessly trashed that all I can say is hopefully he can regain his confidence.

So what to do now as we are less than a month from the grueling B1G season? Here's my proposal to Painter: Walk over to Danny Hope's office, and tell him that since we gave him Bade earlier, he should give us Kawaan Short to walk-on when he finishes playing the bowl game. Kawaan was a teammate of E'Twaun in high school, and he is no doubt a BIG presence down low at 300 lbs. There should be no doubt on Kawaan's size, athleticism and bad-assery, which are all very much needed for our basketball team. We don't need him to be a scorer, but we need a big presence to patrol the lane, dunk, and rebound, and I think Kawaan can do a great job. Anyone sees him play? Can he fit? Don't you think he'll be at least an upgrade? If Painter can pull it off it's a great trade for him.

And if I remember correctly, it has been done before. Charles Davis was a TE but he has also walked on to Keady's team, no?
