ummm he's been our point guard for the last three years so unless you're referring to an experiment which has lasted since November 2016...

Also if you look back on those rosters, who would you rather have as PG?

He's good for that position even if it doesn't fit him perfectly.

They’ve lost like 50+ games the last 3 years with him at PG. He’s a fine player, but the staff’s insistence on him playing PG will get this entire staff fired sooner or later.

Ky’s a good player who makes terrible decisions with the ball.

Recruit a PG. You want to bitch about Christian, start there.

he recruited one of the best point guards in the country

"recruitment of point guards" is possibly the worst criticism imaginable of his tenure

you guys crack me up
I look forward to being called stupid for expressing the above thought.

What the hell are you talking about? Whenever anybody other than Ky handles the rock we are in grave danger. You can see the panic in the players faces when they have the ball, they are always holding it for Ky. The correct criticism here is that there needs to at least be a second person (other than Tabbs) who can spot Bowman as the primary ball handler, because when the ball is out of his hands the offense is absolutely painful.
I like BC basketball.

christian's biggest failure was getting 1 useful (albeit very useful) piece out of his first true recruiting class: jrob, aj turner, matt milon, sammy barnes-thompkins, jc reyes, mez

hitting on 1 of 6, with only aj being the other that has some semblance of value is pretty bad.

edit: also looking at aj turner, he is pretty much the same player he was 2 years ago when he left only less efficient: http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basket ... /aj-turner

He's saying Bowman is a PG and you admit he's a very good player ergo you admit he's a very good PG. The problem is that the things that make him a good player are not PG skills.

You could play him at C and he's still a good player but that wouldn't mean the team had a center.

Bowman is a classic college combo guard forced to handle the ball because no one else can. It was easier last year because at least there was another guy to take the pressure off of him.

Hes a classic college small forward in a point guard body with zero discernable point guard skill.
