    ESPN’s Chad Ford had this to say about Andre:

    “Last season, Roberson was a favorite of statheads everywhere. He was a beast on the boards, and all he needed was some semblance of an offensive game. While he has proved he can still rebound, his offensive game has actually regressed a bit this season. Can a team justify taking him in the first round based on rebounding alone?”

    I know it’s still early in the season but if Andre stays for his senior year how does Tad make the numbers work?

    Need to find 2 scholarships if he stays. Will definitely be interesting.

    So keeping roberson around for another year, isn't a good thing for the program?

    I have given myself the impression that Tunks will graduate. Gotta wonder about Adams as well.

    No, that is good. But being forced to dump players currently on scholarship is definitely not a good thing for the program.

    Could see mills being told to transfer or drop his scholly. He has played like a total of 30min since he has been here

    We're putting the cart MILES in front of the horse. Dre will find his groove - plus it's a weak draft this year.

    Not really shocking. And we're going to have to find out what to do with one player's scholarship, even if Roberson goes to the draft (assuming there is nobody that leaves the program). This just magnifies the issue a little bit.

    Andre will be fine. This is just a bunch of wild speculation. The NBA needs rebounders, too. Not everybody needs to score. And it's not like Dre isn't scoring. Much ado about nothing, IMO.

    Not worried

    Dre's last two games have been his best two games, he looked ready to go from the tip against Wyoming. He is letting his offense come to him and not pressing as much, he does need to be careful about trying to take two dribbles and dunk on people out of the post every time, he has gotten several charge calls when guys slide over and block the path to the basket.
