I think they get Martin.

I agree, I don't think they could get Painter away from Purdue. Martin is probably a better fit at Mizzou and Jacobsen.
That roster down there is exactly the opposite type of player Jacobsen needs. It'd be a total rebuild with him. I hope he doesn't go there.
I don't think Jacobson leaves UNI, he watched what happened to Mcdermmott, I believe he's a lifetime coach for UNI, same goes for Butler's Stevenson they are happy where they're at.
Painter is interesting to look at though he loses his premier players and would step into some nice ones at Mizzou.
mizz is kind of a tough situation for a coach to walk into. you start out with a loaded team of seniors (7 of them) and face high expectations. then, you have to completely rebuild the team with new recruits, since mizz has zero 2011/2012 committments. plus the younger pressey probably follows anderson to ark.
similiar to steve lavin at st. johns now that i think about it.
the brad stevens staying at butler thing is getting a bit old. he's making $1M per with 12 years on his contract. the reason all these smaller school guys jump is for the cash - but if you get the cash at a non-bcs school, (few, stevens, alford, mcdermott, lowery, jacbosen etc.) then of course its no big deal to stay.
If Norm Stewart fires off a call to Ben it could be a different thing. Norm Stewart is a legend and he coached at UNI as well. I doubt it. Just throwing out a "What if".
jacobsen is making what, $450k? i bet if mizz quadruples his salary he'd have to take a hard look....
Jacobson would be an awful fit there.
Actually Jacobsen saw what happened with Mcdermott when he took his act to the big conferance. He is not stupid. He would change stuff or recruit the type of kid like Wisconsin gets. Mcdermott tried to take his act and got the wrong kind of players for his offense just because they had talent.
Cuonzo Martin would be a perfect fit there.
I personally cannot see Painter leaving Purdue for Mizzou. Purdue may not pay their coaches well, but they still have a Big 11 budget. So he'd leave for a slight pay increase and go to a tougher conference? I don't see the reasoning there. IMO Cuonzo Martin is a shoe-in. Big conference experience as a player and assistant, HC experience in-state. I'd be a little worried that he would eventually leave to go back to Purdue, but Painter's pretty young.
With his style of play, fans would want him fires after just a few losses. Going from Anderson's style to Jacobson's style is a 180 degree change.
Terrible fit for Jacobson.
