Mel Tucker trolled by fans, media following back-to-back letdowns by Michigan State
Michigan State suffered an embarrassing loss at home 34-7 to an unranked Minnesota Golden Gophers squad as Spartans head coach Mel Tucker was trolled hard after the loss.
This was the second consecutive loss for Michigan State as the Spartans lost 39-28 on the road to an unranked Washington Huskies team. Michigan State was ranked No. 11 at the time of the loss to Washington.
Michigan State had no answer to Minnesota on both sides of the field as the Golden Gophers outgained the Spartans in total yards accounted for 508-to-240. Michigan State turned the ball over three times, while Minnesota only turned the ball over once.
Michigan State had one of its best seasons in recent history by finishing with an overall record of 11-2. Tucker was given a 10-year, $95 million extension to remain at Michigan State on November 29.
However, the recent string of poor outings had fans and media talking on social media. Take a look:

Witnesses say the best way to protect yourself from Tuck is to throw something at him as he won't be able to defend it pic.twitter.com/YKPFqVLtSP

Today was Mel Tucker's 36th game as a college football head coach. It was his 16th loss — and the 13th loss that has been by double digits.

What’s happening today in East Lansing is as bad as it gets for an MSU home football game. Mel Tucker has some explaining to do. You don’t get a 95 million dollar deal and deliver this type of football at Spartan Stadium.

Turning Kenneth Walker into $100 million guaranteed was an absolute master class by Mel Tucker and his agent pic.twitter.com/jcqr55qrBg

Mel Tucker better start making decisions that folks who make $10M/yr make. I’m so curious to find out if he will.

Is the honeymoon phase of Mel Tucker over yet? Or not yet https://t.co/5zRpeiuCiR

Minnesota might be a great team, but this is a red flag game. Like the back of Dantonio's career, it's a sign that changes need to be made. I hope for the sake of Mel Tucker they are able to figure it out this time.
However, I still ride or die with this program, GO GREEN! 💚
