*looks at position*

*sees PG*

OFFER HIM NOW!
In truth, it's better to have too many guys who can play PG than lack depth at the position. Some of the best hoops we've seen played in recent years were the UNC & Nova teams that won titles and made additional Final Fours. Both those rosters had at least 3 guys in their Top 8 of their rotations who projected as PGs at the next level.

Heck, our best CU offense was probably 2010 with Alec, Cory and Nate all playing starter minutes.

I'm just glad that Tad seems to be targeting another guard, and one that is very different than Hammond and Ruffin

Yup,

Seems like for a while Tad was working with the idea that if he had enough versatile combination guys who could do multiple things he didn't need a pure point.

He had point guards but it wasn't a priority so he went with guys like Collier, Talton, and Stalzer and before that Ski.

Spencer was a PG but he was also big enough and talented enough to do the combo guard stuff.

It may be that Kin has opened his eyes to how a true pure PG can make his group of combination players better.

I know we had a terrible one the other day against Utah but it seems that as Kin has matured into running Tad's team we have had a lot fewer of those stretches where we just can't get points on the board as we watch the score turn in favor of our opponents.

Every year. Recruit a point guard every f'ing year. They're called the QB of the team for a reason.

****, go vintage Illinois or Villanova. Throw three on the court at the same time.

EVERY DAMN YEAR.

Just curious, but if CU took him could they still take Mbaye? If any seniors did come back they wouldn’t count and we could still be at the limit I think... I wouldn’t complain!

To your point, isn't CU recruiting three point guards this year?

Combo guards. I want pure point.
I don't know if I would count Julian Hammond as a combo guard, but I can see Ruffin as a combo fit. Regardless, they are all lead guards, at the very least. Much more McKinley Wright than DeLeon Brown
