LSU's next head coach? College football fans apparently know who Tigers next coach will be
LSU fans may have gotten a glimpse of their next head coach in a marquee game early on Saturday afternoon.
Mel Tucker and Michigan State roared back from a 16-point deficit to knock off Michigan in East Lansing, 37-33. Kenneth Walker III was the hero of the day as the star running back rushed 23 times for 197 yards and 5 touchdowns.
As the Spartans pulled away, and after the game, plenty of fans saw Tucker as the next LSU coach.
Here’s a sampling of the reaction of fans discussing Tucker to LSU:

Mel Tucker will be at LSU next year and Jim Harbaugh will get another 5 year extension and continue to tease Wolverines fans for another decade.
