But your point is half the reason this is the ideal time to bring Izzo in. there's little doubt he is a great coach. Yes he has always dealt with kids but the future of this team happens to be falling on kids such as stuckey, jerbko, and our pick this year.
We need to rebuild, I don't see any chance we win anything important in the next year or two. Id rather see Izzo come in and develop these kids and turn this team into a contender again. Im very confident he is going to be able to earn respect of any guy on our roster (minus rip but thats why rip needs to be shipped out becasue he's proved noone can other than LB).
