Tom Izzo KISS tongue

Tom Izzo is great a Midnight Madness. Two years ago he and his family dressed up like The Avengers.

The theme was “what would Tom Izzo have done for a career if he hadn’t been a basketball coach. The answer? He’d be the accordion player for KISS. Or at least the KISS cover band War Machine. No matter how you feel about KISS, you have to admit, this was pretty amazing all around.

Running from a taxi that cops put you in? That is just plane stupid. The kind of stupidity made by a man wearing a floral print Hawaiian shirt with multiple buttons undone. Nolte appeared in 32 games for the Cavaliers last season. He had a swell dunk in the NCAA tournament and the crowd went wild.
