Stay Classy Tom Izzo-- Izzo Jokes about Michigan Plane Crash

Previewing the Big Ten's Sweet 16 matchups during Thursday's appearance on ESPN's Mike and Mike radio show, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo made a tongue-in-cheek comment about Michigan's recent hot streak that's not going to go over well nationally.

"I would never do this, but I could joke about it that I need to go find a plane right now because they sure have played well since that thing,” Izzo said.

Michigan's team plane suffered what officials call a "rejected takeoff" on March 8 en route to the Big Ten Tournament in Washington, D.C. Takeoff was aborted due to high winds and the plane skidded off the runway during what many called a horrific ordeal.
