Mel Tucker isn't underestimating Western Michigan: 'We have to play our fannies off'
You heard the man.
Michigan State hosts Western Michigan on Friday. And you best believe the Spartans are going to be prepared.
“Whatever we see on film from these guys, they’re gonna be better than that,” Tucker said. “Way better. They’re gonna be more intense than that, stronger than that, faster than that, more physical than that. That’s our focus. We have to play our fannies off, that’s our preparation.”
Tucker knows any team can beat you any given week in college football. Just ask Appalachian State and Georgia State from 2007 and 2019, respectively. Avoiding upsets necessitates intensity.
Tucker: “The intensity of the preparation is the key to the deal. Everything else is just noise.” Says MSU “can’t get ahead of ourselves, because we have to be ready to play a great football game.”
