    I think the biggest thing is that the coaches were really impressed with Morrow in the "secret" scrimmage they had with Nebraska last fall.

    Yes, but during that scrimmage we now know that Jacobson was the better 'kept secret' player that we could use. : )

    Question is, would we still have pursued Jacobsen if Marrow committed.

    For the record...

    Not saying that I think the general consensus that Morrow was the higher priority was wrong or anything. Coaches tend to be right about such things.

    But looking over the numbers, like I said, I do not see much a gulf.

    Can somebody explain it like I am 5, to borrow the Reddit conception?

    I have to agree mostly what you've said about Jacobson. I know that probably goes against the grain and logic of CF. I always wanted this guy to come here. ISU seems to always be hunting for that grand slam. Obviously, that doesn't work many times with the competitiveness of the transfer market. That being said I like Morrow but didn't really understand the extra buzz most had for that guy. If we are going to get transfers I prefer a sit out get two guy like Jacobson. Why? Because he WANTED to be here, is talented, intelligent, and seems to always be positively thinking of the team first. I think he would be a great addition to Lard and Young. With his experience, he's played on the big stage, understands the game, and most importantly would provide great rebounding and a threat to open the outside game for our guards.

    Guess that answers the question of who the staff would rather of had.

    But he did NOT lose a year of eligibility, so he really didn't hurt himself at all!

    I don't think it's denial. It's just that their efficiency numbers are similar and nobody here or anywhere watches Nebrasketball to see any differences between the players.

    It's obvious Morrow was their first choice, but it's not as obvious who is the more productive player. Personally, I think Morrow plays stronger and is a better finisher in the lane than Jacobsen and that's why he was preferred.

    Jacobson + Young + Shayok + Lard for 2018. Great frontcourt base to build upon. Rim protectors. We'll have plenty of schollys to open up next year to go after some young home run hitters. I'd like to see one more with experience as insurance.

    Well, he will lose a year unless he transfers somewhere like Dordt College.

    True - I wonder if he was afraid of having to COMPETE for a genuine role on the team as opposed to thinking he deserved to inherit a starting role? One thing about Jacobsen is that he does NOT appear to shy away from competition!

    Maybe we already have a Morrow in Cameron Lard or Terrance Lewis which may be one of the reasons he chose not to got to ISU.
