College basketball officially made its return Friday night with Midnight Madness festivities taking place all across the country. This may come as a shocker, but Tom Izzo made himself into one of the highlights of the night with his absurd entrance. That’s right, the same Michigan State coach who sped his way into East Lansing a couple years ago had a new bit up his sleeve for 2011. Check out this picture of Izzo’s Top Gun-style entrance, courtesy of our friends at The Dagger who have been tracking some of the best moments from Midnight Madness.
He looks like a natural in that fighter jet. By making the Top Gun entrance, Izzo is referencing the Spartans Veteran’s Day game against No. 1 North Carolina which is being held on an aircraft carrier. That should be a fun one to watch.
