By now many of you are likely aware of the #icebucketchallenge, with participants being doused with a bucket of ice-cold water in an attempt to bring attention to the fight against ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). While there have been some skeptics as to how effective the activity would be, according to the ALS Association some $4 million was raised from July 29 to August 12.

Thursday afternoon Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo recorded his accepting of a challenge, with Michigan State football players Connor Cook and Shilique Calhoun doing the honors of pouring ice-cold water on Izzo. And after completing the challenge the person drenched with water can challenge friends to do the same, so Izzo called out close friend Steve Mariucci and Mariucci’s colleagues at the NFL Network.

    Coach Izzo is just good like that. Not sure you’d see Coach K down at Duke or Coach Calipari (“watch the hair!”) take that challenge!

      Coach K has already done it.

      BOTH Coach Izzo and K are awesome.

      Coach K had his 9 grand kids with him and two of them poured the water on him.
