Michigan State Basketball: ‘Uncle Rico’ Picture of Tom Izzo Surfaces (PHOTO)


During his early years as a Michigan State assistant coach under Jud Heathcote, Tom Izzo rocked quite the soup-straining mustache - one that we became aware of on Wednesday thanks to MSU assistant coach Dane Fife.

One that, per College Spun’s Andrew Holleran, made Izzo look just like Uncle Rico from 2004’s Napoleon Dynamite.

Because he has a 2000 national championship to his name, Izzo likely doesn’t suffer from Uncle Rico’s same desire to “go back in time and take state.”
