    Stay for at least another year or two.

    Jacobson will take the money and get a high profile job, he would be crazy not to.

    Re: What will Ben Jacobsen do now?

    I think he will stay, he's got a great thing going at UNI, and he has seen firsthand with GMac how fast it can go downhill. But, I'm not the one who will be offered oodles of money after the season either.

    The man is going to get paid! UNI is a good job, but he is getting TONS of exposure right now. 30% chance he stays.

    He'll get a big time gig. And, again, he'll be able to look at Mac's situation and learn from it by looking to bring in more high profile programs instead of bringing in the ones that he currently has.

    If Jacobson bolts UNI does McDermott resign from ISU and go back to UNI? Also, would UNI even want him back at this point?

    Re: What will Ben Jacobsen do now?

    He won't be able to turn down the money that's going to be offered.

    Coaches egos don't let them acknowledge when they have a good thing going, they get enamored with the media attenetion about how great they're doing, and then they're courted by big dollars and badda-bing next thing you know they're failing miserably at the next level....but he'll be rich. Invest wisely

    If he leaves he goes away to coach, not iowa. That takes the pressure off. No one pays any attention to Keno now. I think he leaves because most of the stars were not his recruits, and they will definitely take a step backward next year.

    Greg McDermott = Dead Coach Walking. Ben Jacobsen = Near Future Millionaire strutting.
