    Kind of surprised Tucker would leave after just 1 year at Colorado. Michigan State is a better job but not by a wide margin. Perhaps speaks to a lack of confidence in himself.

    A mid-tier Big 10 program has significantly more money and resources to offer than a mid-tier pac 12 programs. Confidence and resources aren't the same thing.

    I get that, but abandoning a program after one mediocre year, especially for one in as much turmoil as MSU, regardless of resources, says to me he questions whether a job any better than Colorado will ever come calling again.

    Yeah, but their facilities & recruiting base sucks.

    Ohio State & Texas A&M may have the ugliest campus in college football.

    the beauty of your campus means absolutely nothing in college football unless Ole Miss is buying players.

    Dan Wolken wrote what is perhaps the dumbest article I've read today as he attempted to tie Mel Tucker leaving to paying college athletes. Stretch arm strong would struggle to connect those two things & reach that far. Just a very stupid opinion by Wolken

    I actually think the article is a good one, and it's something people have noted on here before. The sport is extremely unbalanced right now. In some ways, that favors MSU because it is unbalanced in favor of the SEC right now. And in some ways, that hurts MSU because it is also unbalanced in favor of the elite schools, which we are not.

    You may think it's a stretch to use this situation to discuss something else about the sport, but it follows logically.

    They're doubling his salary & paying more for assistants.

    OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - Ole Miss campus police ask students to behave at future baseball games following a recent incident.
    The university said students were reportedly throwing rocks at Georgia baseball players during last weekend's series.
