TB, really enjoyed reading your post. I agree with everything you said. We've been going to women's basketball since 1990 and ahve lived here since then. I fully realize that Skylar had a bigger impact than Jackie for many of the reasons you enuerate. I'm not naive enough to think that Jackson will have the same mega impact. My point was that Jackson could be a part of the overall marketing strategy, not the prime focus. Make him available for local interviews, push him forward a little bit. He certainly isn't a meal ticket for attendance, but he is local and will at least be recongnized by a portion of the local basketball public. I also don't think he will be as much of a focal point basketball wise as Skylar was with McGraw from the day she arrived. He'll certainly play, however. ND really needs some backup for Atkins. And Jackson has enough all-around ability to get some minutes.
