    Love the guys that make up this team, but would love to see Jacobsen move back to the five spot. That’s my Christmas wish this year.

    My wish is for ISU fans to learn to spell Jacobson before he finishes medical school.

    And a also to shoot 35% from 3 in the Big 12.

    And maybe for Conditt to start spelling his name "Georges".

    My wish is for CSP to have an effect on the outcome of the game from the bench.

    MJ didn't transfer to ISU to play the 5. He played it last year because he knew he had to out of necessity, but this year, playing the 4, is why he transferred. He was going to be stuck at the 5 at NU and didn't want that.

    My wishes:
    Start Conditt at center
    Move Jacobson to a high post
    Increase bench rotation to ensure movement on the floor

    My Christmas already came true. I didn't have to watch them get embarrassed and outcoached against UNI in Des Moines this year.

    Please to God no. At the beginning of the year I would have liked this idea because I thought Jacobson was going to shoot pretty efficiently from 3. There is a reason Miles played him at the 5. That is where he needs to be. I want to see Prohm either move to 4 guard lineup or play his two posts down low similar to Fred in his first year here.

    I didn't say from the 3, but nearer to the free throw line. A double post would be fine too, but it does further clog the middle.

    I'd rather Solomon be the high post if we went that route. Better looking shot and he is also less aggressive in the post. For his size he avoids a lot of contact when he's playing offense.

    You give up a lot of rebounding going with SolYo

    Solomon is averaging 3.8 rebounds a game. Jacobson is averaging 7.3. Jacobson has 13 more offensive rebounds than Young. That could be due to long misses from our poor 3 point shooting, but Jacobson is a much more aggressive player. So I think he is a better fit for that 5. Very interested to see how we play next year. If Foster can come in and be a 7 foot stretch 4, Prohm might have a chance to have a good team. That is, if Prohm can learn some X's and O's.

    This year does feel like a bit of a test run for next year's playing style. If we find something that works this year, next year's team will benefit.

    If we’re going to play a four guard offense we need bigger, more physical guards.
