Tom Izzo has been known to embrace Midnight Madness silliness more than most, but his latest stunt -- a celebration of the thirty years since Magic Johnson and company won the NCAA title -- might be his funniest/most eye-popping wardrobe choice ever.
Here's my thing: I enjoy historical accuracy. My favorite television show is Mad Men, a show that prides itself on -- and at times even thrives thanks to -- its intense appreciation of historical minutiae. And I've got to say: That wardrobe is all wrong. I wasn't around in 1979, but I've seen Boogie Nights and plenty of Talking Heads concert footage and I can promise you that people didn't dress with peace sign accessories in 1979. Come on, Tom. A little effort, huh?
