Mel Tucker left Colorado after just one season when an opportunity to coach at Michigan State arose, and some Buffaloes fans are apparently bitter about it. Tucker dropped a flying elbow on one of those fans on Tuesday.

Tucker took to Twitter to field some questions from Michigan State fans, but one Colorado fan decided to chime in. The fan’s sarcastic question was, “How do I unfollow you?” Tucker responded by providing very detailed instructions.


Fans can feel however they want about Tucker’s departure from Colorado, but Michigan State reportedly gave him a massive raise over what he was making and much more to spend on his coaching staff. The opportunity to move to a bigger program was too good to pass up for many reasons, especially after Tucker went 5-7 in his first year at Colorado. Had it not been for Mark Dantonio’s sudden departure, Tucker probably would have had a much tougher time landing a job like that.
