For Michigan State head coach Mel Tucker, the 2020 season has already been a roller coaster ride.

After a season-opening upset loss to Rutgers, the Spartans bounced back with a thrilling upset victory over rival Michigan in Ann Arbor.

Then, back down again.

Before the Spartans could even blink they were down 35-0 against Iowa last weekend, in a game that saw MSU’s defense unable to stop anything early against the Hawkeyes. Back-to-back 70-yard plus drives by Iowa gave the hosts an early 14-0 lead, and they didn’t look back.

This week won’t get any easier for Tucker, as Michigan State hosts No. 10 Indiana on Saturday in East Lansing.

On Tuesday, Tucker met with the media via a Zoom press conference and discussed some of the problems with the Spartans’ performance against Iowa, as well as some of the preparations in the works to take on the Hoosiers.

Here’s what Tucker had to say on Tuesday at his weekly press conference.
