Izzo Urges Fans To Leave

Izzo Urges Fans To Leave-Tom Izzo is one authority figureMichigan State students will listen to.

Some of them, at least.

The Spartans' basketball coach went over to the student section during a delay before Saturday's football game against South Florida and urged fans to leave the area because bad weather was on the way. A message was posted on the scoreboard, and the seating bowl was almost empty except for a student section that was about half full.

Izzo said on a microphone that it wasn't safe to stay.

Michigan State's season opener last week was also delayed by bad weather.

Some fans remained near the field even after Izzo's speech - but a downpour about 10 minutes later helped clear the place out.
