The Houston Chronicle writer reported that it was "done" before Jacobson was even interviewed. It may be true but FoxSports is jumping the gun by reporting something based off another guy who jumped the gun. Just an FYI.
One of the first posts an Aggie Board from a poster who wanted the Aggies to get a top tier coach.
"A&M Building Champions on the cheap"
Just sounded funny.
At least in the message board world, he will be accepted and do not think their will be a negative reaction, but I do know Jacobson had some strong fan support from those that care about basketball in Aggieland.
His background and style of play is similar to Floyd he came to ISU. Also similar to Turgeon's for that matter. This is a good hire by A&M, they are better off with him than Buzz Williams.
While I think its a decent hire, in no way is it better than Buzz Williams. Buzz has shown success at Marquette and has some really good charisma. I think he's got a bright future, he looks like a guy that young athletes would like to play for.
