Was Tom Izzo Fired Out of a Cannon?

Michigan State men’s basketball coach Tom Izzo has become well known for his entrances into the season-opening Midnight Madness practices. Last year he came out dressed as Iron Man and the year before he came out in a mini fighter jet dressed as a Top Gun pilot. So how did Izzo make his entrance this year into Midnight Madness?:

Tom Izzo kicked off Midnight Madness at Michigan State by entering the arena to a Phil Collins song while straddling an enormous cannon. He was then blasted out of that cannon into a safety net clear across the court. Except of course he wasn’t fired out of a cannon.
