Official Michigan State/Mel Tucker Hate Thread

FTA: I’ve been preaching it the entire offseason on Twitter: Mel Tucker is not the savior for Michigan State. Yes, he was left with a relative dumpster fire of a program. That being said, there is no excuse for the type of performance that this team. Rutgers may not have had a last-second coaching change, but their program was in a worse spot than MSU. They went through the same pandemic that MSU did and showed up to the game miles ahead of the Spartans.

A lot of people want to say that this is only a single game and we shouldn’t hit the panic button. I think that’s overly optimistic. Can you imagine a coach who gets blown out by Rutgers at home in his first game and finishes his career with a national championship? Conference championship? Second place? Probably not, because it has never happened and will not happen here.

It’s obviously too early to say that he’s a failure of a coach but man, I don’t even know what to say at this point other than this: Tucker has a long way to go before he earns the respect of Michigan State fans. Expectations were not high, and somehow he still fell very, very short of them.

Bunker down guys, it’s going to be a long season.

Bunker down? LOL **** that! I'm really excited to Harbaugh and UM abuse them next week.

Man, what a stark contrast to last season for Mel. From endearing himself to the hearts of the fanbase by delivering an electric comeback victory over a historic rival, to an abysmal showing against a team everyone expected him to beat. Thinking about how long ago that win against ****braska feels, even though it was just over a year ago, really does put into perspective how much has changed in such a small amount of time.

I hope all that money makes up for long-term sucking as a coach and all the well-earned jibes he will receive from two different fan bases. It may be all he gets. 🤞🏻

Did he pull out the old AFA game plan? Maybe Mitch Albom can retract his praise for this schmuck.

I enjoy his suffering and hope it grows. But, his reality is that he is a very wealthy man and it's almost impossible to be a total failure in college football - he'll just keep getting rehired as an assistant or whatever.

It will be fun to cheer against Michigan state each week. I enjoy seeing ****braska lose and this will be fun too. Rutgers? He lost the guaranteed W on the schedule.

what do we do when NU and MSU play each other??? I don’t want either of them to win. :unsure:

He was pretty relentless with the clapping yesterday.....

Will there be more clapping next week too?

I’m looking forward to the Michigan-MSU game. Will be a great day. We will still be undefeated and the ****ers and Spartans will be 0-2!!!!
