Jacobson and Morrow would have both played.   Borchardt and Okeke wouldve never seen the floor.   Jordy wouldnt have played much at all.   Jack doesn't play much at all early on and think Gill and Allen may have lost some minutes with Palmer sliding down to the 2 with Roby's versatility giving him some time at the 3.

If Ed and Mike had stayed: Okeke would never have been here; Borchardt would never have been on scholarship; and Jordy was probably gone.  That’s a lot of minutes available at the 5.

But Ed’s feet probably wouldn’t have lasted more than a half-season.  

That means Jacobsen probably would have played a lot at the 5—shouldn’t have transferred, unless he really, really wants to be a 4.

As our second leading scorer, Copeland was used completely differently on the offensive end of the court than MJ because his shots actually went in.  He's every bit the rebounder Jacobson is.  He also never played the 5 like MJ did.  When you've proven yourself to be a big who cannot score, you had better dirty it up inside.  

 

Additionally, our team shooting % was higher (2pt, 3pt, FT) this past season.  There literally weren't as many boards to be had, thank God.    

 

Rebound percentage is just that - a percentage of the rebounds available that a particular player grabs. It's not based on totals. We have three full years of Copeland and two of Jacobson to go off of. Isaac Copeland is unquestionably a better player than Michael Jacobson; it's OK to admit Jacobson is the better rebounder.
