    Nobody wanted to be raped or sexually assaulted at MSU but it happened anyway.

    It’s all going to be ok, someone will eventually coach your rapey team, the refs are not going to let you lose to Illinois tonight, and your spartan circle jerk will meet again. All will be right in your world soon enough.

    As a distinguished CU alum, it really is time the university just quits football. The act of wanting to be relevant in it can end.

    "People with knowledge of Tucker’s deal with the Spartans said it doubles his Colorado coaching salary pool (which was $3.15 million in 2019), includes a substantial increase to the Michigan State strength and conditioning staff budget and program resources and will more than double Tucker’s Colorado salary, which is around $2.7 million."

    Pac 12 schools are so fucked going forward.

    Michigan State is paying mel tucker ~$5.5m/year?

    this sucks for colorado, obviously, but this seems more like a desperate program opening up its bank and tucker getting all that he can and more out of that position.

    He did an above average job at cu on the recruiting trail, but I wouldn't call him a hell of recruiter.

    Pretty damn happy about this. Didn’t really know who he was until a wk ago, but checked a lot of boxes that our search had and some it needed, but couldn’t say publicly. Really hope the coaching pool salary is legit because that’s something we never let MD do. Time to learn what kind of connections he has as he puts a staff together

    No idea what to make of Tucker as a coach but at worst he should stock the roster for the next guy.

    The competitive disadvantage the PAC is at makes them closer to C-USA than the B1G.

    I’m just glad the strength and conditioning budget is getting a substantial increase. With prescription drug prices these days, this was a long time coming

    Great hire all things considered when names like Barnett were being thrown out.

    Curious who he gets on his staff. I know he is a fantastic recruiter and his former Midwest ties. But curious how he fills out the staff because taking MSU national on a recruiting stage seems like it will fail.

    But :rain:

    Overall, have to say after Fickell and with the clusterfuck of a process, pleased with how this ended up. Seems like this is about the best we could have hoped for at this point.

    Lots of upside here, seems to be a lot to like. Some risk as well, obviously, but happy that we showed we are at least willing to make a serious financial commitment instead of just hiring some Dantonio holdover or Dantonio adjacent guy (Narduzzi, Barnett, Tressel). I think there is a lot more potential here than there would be with a guy like Creighton as well.

    Still mildly disappointed we won't get to see Bert in EL.
