Category — Tom Izzo
This story reminds me of my lone trip to Nebraska. After flying from Oklahoma City to Kansas City, I boarded a prop plane that I practically had to crawl into because it was so small. As we started to approach Lincoln, this little number started dancing in the sky like MC Hammer. “Just my freaking luck,” I thought to myself. “I’m going down in freaking Nebraska. What will the neighbors say?”
There is a little known story about Tom Izzo. The Michigan State coach spent 7 weeks in Tulsa as an assistant coach. It’s mentioned in passing on the current edition of “Real Sports” on HBO, where Izzo is the subject of a profile. Mitch Albom offers a few more details.
