Izzo and his wife, Lupe, have donated $1 million to the MSU AD, most of which will go towards the football scholarship program. This is a pretty solid thing for Izzo to do, obviously, and it appears as if he's trying to keep the football program and the hype around it going by matching it with monetary support. Link?
P.S. - Everything in the article is fluff (and Izzo earned it, I guess), but this one still made me shake my head:
"Supporting the football team was an easy decision," Izzo said in a prepared statement. "Coach [Mark] Dantonio is a man of character, building a championship program."
Everything was good until that whole "man of character" bit, but that's just my opinion. And of course, Beat Sparty!
