I must agree to disagree with you hear. I really liked components of Gabe’s game last season, and frequently so posted here. However, I also realized his limitations and did not back away from noting those as well.
I won’t say I was “glad” when he left the team…and I think, as a reserve, he’d have a role on this year’s squad. That said, the way this team wins is playing a game that Gabe is disadvantaged at, because he is an offensive liability. Coach is building his program with a purpose, and sacrifices in the short term will get us where we’re going sooner than later; Gabe was a “casualty” of those changes.
I’m very happy for him that he seems to have found a new home on a good team at WVU. But I’m not second-guessing his departure from the U of A.
