Spartan Nation is back with legendary high school football and basketball coach Chuck Grenier to discuss Michigan State athletics' latest news.

It's game week.

A new era of Michigan State Football begins inside Spartan Stadium on Saturday with Mel Tucker leading the way against Rutgers.

Tucker, a man with 23-years of coaching experience, was hired away from Colorado to become the Spartans 25th head football coach on February 12.

So, after 13-seasons with Mark Dantonio, things will look different this weekend.

But how different is the question? Grenier said it's going to be "a real informative and exciting game against Rutgers."

Indeed, the fans will learn a lot, but Tucker has kept everything close to the vest as MSU gets closer to kickoff.

In his first weekly press conference, the Spartan coach didn't release a depth chart and avoided naming a starting quarterback. 

With the annual spring-game canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, Rutgers doesn't have new film to study or footage of any kind, which is precisely what Tucker wants.

During the half-hour presser, Tucker made sure fans knew he expects a physical, mentally tough, and process-oriented football team, ensuring he didn't say or do anything to help Rutgers game plan for Michigan State.
