    Some Texas A&M/UNI thoughts - Ben Jacobson

    It sounds like this Ben Jacobson to Texas A&M stuff is legit. I'm hearing that Billy Kennedy might be a backup to Ben. Who knows?

    I've been thinking...If Jacobson heads south, who would replace him?

    Wouldn't you think that Iowa Energy head coach Nick Nurse would be a perfect candidate in Cedar Falls?

    Re: Some Texas A&M/UNI thoughts - Ben Jacobson

    I really have a hard time believing that Jake is really interested in that job at this point in the year. He just doesn't seem like a Texas guy.

    As far as replacement goes....UNI is cheap. I wouldn't be surprised if they kept it in the family and hired the head assistant.

    Re: Some Texas A&M/UNI thoughts - Ben Jacobson

    I am a dual Cyclone/Panther fan. I really, really hope Jacobson doesn't go to College Station, although I do understand why he would.

    If it happens, I would rather see UNI promote from within and name Kyle Green as the next coach, must as they just moved Jacobson up to replace McD a few years ago, especially being that it is mid-May.

    Re: Some Texas A&M/UNI thoughts - Ben Jacobson

    Sounds like A&M is interviewing both Kennedy and Jacobson this weekend.
    So much for the long-term deal that Ben signed with UNI last year. You know, the contract that AD Troy Dannen said "would keep Coach Jacobson at UNI for the next ten years."

    Re: Some Texas A&M/UNI thoughts - Ben Jacobson

    The guy from TexAgs isn't ready to call it a done deal but feels Kennedy may have sealed it with his interview:

    Billy Kennedy of Murray State was the first interview today. Ben Jacobson would have been next. The flight Byrne was on has returned to CS
    You guys can do the math on that one but - per that and two separate sources - all signs point to Kennedy-to-A&M
    Still going to hold off on calling this done bc Jacobson was clear front-runner heading into today. BK interview went outstanding I'm told
    -Billy Liucci of TexAgs.com

    A&M has told a potential candidate Billy Kennedy would get the job, person with knowledge of the situation just told me.

    Long term deal for UNI is a cheap buyout for A&M.

    Has he left yet?

    Um, please point out where Dannen said that Jake "will be here for 10 years".

    He signed him to a 10 year contract. He never guaranteed that he would be here or anything.

    If coach Jake were to leave, I would be absolutely shocked and very disappointed if UNI did not promote lead assistant Kyle Green. The guy is ready to be a head coach, and would do a great job, IMO.

    Re: Some Texas A&M/UNI thoughts - Ben Jacobson

    Jacobson will have some questions to answer when he gets back (from the players). If I'm a recruit I'm a little nervous big Ben might be on the first paycheck out of town. This can't help UNI either way.

    He was here for a short time under Mac, and has been here the whole time with Jake. Was at Marquette in between UNI stints.

    What about Keno Davis to UNI?

    @DrewMurphy00 just sent me that on Twitter.
