Tom Izzo - Midnight Madness Entrance (2012)

The “Midnight Madness” event at Michigan State has become an entertainment spectacle each year, and this season was no exception. For Friday night’s event, Michigan State’s coach Tom Izzo makes his latest dramatic entrance after an introduction where his daughter pleads, “This year, you cannot embarrass me.” Let’s hope she’s a fan of “The Avengers.” Watch this video to see how Izzo (with a little help) saves a kidnapped Sparty before landing in Michigan State’s arena to the dulcet tones of Black Sabbath: “I am Iron Man/ Has he lost his mind/ Can he see or is he blind/ Can he walk at all/ Or if he moves will he fall?” Well done, Michigan State. Well done. But does Izzo get to keep the suit? Watch more highlights from Friday’s events at Michigan State, Purdue, and Minnesota.
