Best of Midnight Madness: Bill Self and his custom motorcycle

Midnight Madness produces some memorable moments each year, so we're chronicling the best ones from Friday's lineup all weekend. If you spot something we missed, let us know here or here.

If Michigan State's Tom Izzo is the king of the memorable Midnight Madness entrance, Kansas coach Bill Self is not far behind. Self actually may have topped Izzo last October with his Vanilla Ice costume complete with a backwards cap, shades, gold chains and a matching silk shirt and pants. What this year's motorcycle get-up lacks in ridiculousness it makes up for in cool, especially the custom-made and custom-painted blue and red bike commemorating the Jayhawks' 2008 national championship. Said Self to a sold out Allen Fieldhouse crowd: "This is the first time I've ever ridden a motorcycle in my life other than a Suzuki 50 in third grade ... Take it from an expert. It rides pretty nice."
