It is VERY early in our season.

I've watched comments about our pg play in our 2 games and viewed diehard comments. I am not. I repeat, I am not trying to start anything. I just want a cosigner or critic who will objectively comment on pg.

I want Ty Jerome to be the man and lead us to dominance during his years here. My gripe is that after the first game, someone asked the questioned of who should start. I saw a few members attack with comments that it should be Jerome. We all know he was in a boot and wasn't able to get the time on the court to harness his skills and perfect his craft. Be honest with your answer though. My feeling is that we roll with who shows up and shows out on game day and practice.
I know Jerome is recovering with the hip. I see his lateral deficiency. Because of it, he is reaching and committing fouls, I get it. But Johnson, albeit with a couple of turnovers but superior speed and poise had me thinking, "bingo, we got action" . I made up my mind to "let this kid play Tony". He's here for 1 Year. Johnson has a ton of time and experience. Jerome will learn and be better for us if he checks his ego and becomes humble if he doesn't start every game.
I've been on the board long enough to know the pessimist and knowitalls will come, but pause and think about it. The season is early and we were counting on Tony's recruiting eye on Jerome to replace LP. I'm just saying, support his decision to go after Johnson.
