Tom Izzo, head coach of the Michigan State Men’s Basketball team, tries to make a memorable entrance every year for the start of basketball practice known as Midnight Madness. Here are some of the costumes he’s worn in past:
- 2007: the theme of the night was tied to the movie 300, so Izzo dressed as a warrior
- 2008: to commemorate the 1979 NCAA title, Izzo wore a black wig and dashiki-style shirt and drove a VW bus
- 2009: Izzo dressed as a Race Car driver and drove in a race car designed by engineering students
- 2010: Astronaut with The Jetsons theme music playing
- 2011: Top Gun flight pilot
For this years Midnight Madness, Izzo rocketed onto the court as Iron Man with his wife and kids joining in the fun as Black Widow(s) and Captain America.
