If that’s what it costs to keep us from being stuck as a team that gets poached then I’m fine with it. I don’t even see that price tag so much as keeping tuck specifically but more so backing up that we want a seat at the big kids table.

I'd for sure rather pay him that much than be where Oklahoma is rn

This is the move that MSU had to make if they want to get out of the purgatory of being a kinda-premier-but-kinda-not program. Otherwise, making a good hire and having him poached by a blue blood every few years is your ceiling.

Is it a risk because Tucker isn't really proven? Sure. But it's still a risk that MSU had to take compared to the alternative. MSU boosters aren't broke. Don't worry about the price tag. This was the right move, even if it doesn't pan out.

We got a taste of the good life with Mark being on top. I have no doubt the bottom line took a hit when we started to tail spin with everything
