    So he's a great public speaker with lots of charisma, an iron will and can be a close friend up to a point?

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    CU locked him out of the athletic facility and wouldn't let him say goodbye to the team. Funny though that if Ohio State calls either their President or AD this year with an offer to move to a better job for twice the money, you god damned well know that both will crawl to Columbus on their hands and knees.

    Mel Tucker will more than double his salary by leaving Colorado for Michigan State


    When it came to the Michigan State football job, it was all about the money, stupid. Stupid money. As always.

    Days after confirming his commitment to Colorado, Mel Tucker stunned most of the college football world by unconfirming and decommitting from the Pac-12 school. Wednesday morning, Colorado acknowledged that Tucker had resigned his position, effective immediately. A short time later, Michigan State football announced that Tucker had officially been hired to replace Mark Dantonio as head coach.

    Tucker left Colorado for Michigan State football after just one season. In that one season with the Buffaloes, Tucker was paid $2.4 million in guaranteed compensation. That number was ninth among Pac-12 coaches.

    According to reports, the new Michigan State football head coach will work under a six-year contract that will average $5.5 million annually. For those mathematically-challenged, Tucker will more than double his pay by moving from Boulder to East Lansing.

    AJHawkfan Wanna make $14 the hard way?

    Dude more than doubled his salary; why cant they just congratulate him and wish him well? That's the kind of petty, sour grapes crap that will keep you from ever attracting a big-name long-term coach and becoming relevant.

    I don't have any idea what kind of recruiting class Tucker put together in his one season out there, but here's hoping 3/4 of them hit the transfer portal and go with him to East Lansing.

    You go out publicly and affirm your commitment to the current school, then go around with your AD to booster functions to talk up the program and try to rally more support and donations, and then, literally hours after doing that, blindside your AD by bolting, he might get a little salty.

    Proves the theory that everybody has their price.

    CU "fans" skipped denial and went straight to anger. Bargaining, depression and acceptance are still weeks away. I put "fans" in quotation marks because they really don't have many.
