Getting back to work: Michigan State hitting winter workouts hard
Michigan State’s season came to a close a little over a month ago, and already the Spartans are getting back to work. On Monday, the team’s Twitter account shared a video of the team taking part in winter workouts.
The Spartans are entering the second season of the Mel Tucker era, but this will really be his first offseason in charge of the program. While he was named the head coach last year, spring practices and on-campus activities were cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, Tucker and the MSU staff has an opportunity to work with players for a full offseason. That should prove to be beneficial for the Spartans moving forward.
Below is the video shared from Michigan State on Monday:

Michigan State finished the 2020 season with a 2-5 record, finishing last in the B1G East in winning percentage. However, the Spartans got two huge victories in Tucker’s first season.
In Week 2, Michigan State squeaked out a 27-24 victory over Michigan to reclaim the Paul Bunyan Trophy. It was a victory in Ann Arbor, which makes it even sweeter for the Spartans. Later in the season, MSU snapped a two-game losing streak by upsetting No. 8 Northwestern 29-20 in East Lansing.
The Spartans ended the year with losses to Ohio State and Penn State. It’s Week 9 matchup against Maryland was canceled.
