Was wondering....Had we offered MSU coach Tom Izzo to be our basketball coach when he was an assistant early on for Jud Heathcote, whether he'd have even accepted to coach M or stayed at MSU to succeed Heathcote? And i wonder the backlash or angst that would have been present in the M faithful, of having hired an unknown Sparty no less. This especially would be interesting to me, what many folks think how the hire would have been digested and viewed. And I would figure the only opportunity to get him would have been in his first few years when Heathcote had no immediate retirement plans, though I do not know who our coach was in those years or if we were even looking for a new coach. Hopefully someone here can contribute to these thoughts better than I can. Thanks in advance.
