    Do you guys think going with a 4 guard lineup going forward is the best option for us? In our 4 games against P6 opponents, we have been out-rebounded in every game.

    If Jacobson keeps playing the way he is, yes.

    I’m not sure what our best lineup is. The only thing I’m sure of is that Solomon and Jacobson combining for 3 rebounds is unacceptable.

    I think Conditt needs more minutes. Think it will be a long year. Not getting much from the bench besides him.

    Whatever happens, Nixon needs to go from a green light to a yellow light as far as shooting goes..

    His trip to the Bahamas wasn't the greatest.

    Lineup doesn’t mean jack sh*t if nobody knows how to defend or box out

    I've only watched the last 2 games, and parts of all the others, but I think my top 5 players right now are Haliburton, Bolton, Jackson, Solo, and Conditt.
    I don't know if that lineup has even played together or would mesh together at all, but that's who I like. Nixon needs to slow down the trigger a little bit, and Jacobson hasn't quite been as good as last year, wondering if that's a product of being asked to be more of a stretch 4 or what. Going forward, I'd like to see Jackson, Conditt, Zion, and Grill getting a few more minutes

    Jacobson has regressed so far which really hurts this team

    Haliburton
    Bolton
    Nixon
    Condit
    Young

    Grill first off bench. He doesn't stuff the stat sheet, but he seems to know what he's doing out there.

    Jacobsen seems better in short bursts. Let him go full effort and get him out.

    Prohm hasn't and won't play Solo and Conditt together.

    Reason MJ has regressed is bc he’s playing a diff position all together. Last year he was at the 5 and very effective at the 5... this year he’s playing a 4 on the perimeter.

    We should be play 4 guards and splitting the 5 spot 3 ways between the 3 bigs.. unless we are playing an overly big team

    It seems like Jacobson altered his shot from last year. More arc.

    Jacobson did a lot of good things against Alabama. I wouldn't mind seeing his role reduced, but he's a guy that we need to stay confident if we're going to ever play two bigs. He's got to shoot the three.

    We need to run offense when Nixon starts with the ball to keep him from shooting early in the shot clock off the pick and roll. He does have to get a little better with shot selection, but he is the tone setter on defense. I think he's rubbed off on Bolton, Jackson and the other guards. He's a bulldog that ISU hasn't had in a long time. A poor man's Jevon Carter.

    Conditt needs more minutes. Need a shot blocker in the game. ISU can’t give 80+ points every night and win many games

    not sure I like Jackson and Grill together too often right now and worry about offense w/ that 5 overall. There was a stretch tonight when those Jackson, Grill and Zion were in together... semi-cringeworthy. I do think Jackson and Nixon could be opposites (meaning 1 is on the floor when the other is out) with their defensive ability, then could probably do something similar w/ Grill/Bolton

    Definitely can tell rotations are still being figured out by the coaches

    Conditt is 2nd on the team in PER and box score +/- behind Haliburton.. he needs to start.
