Mel Tucker took questions from fans Wednesday night on Twitter. One wanted to know about the Michigan State footballcoach and his new staff working remotely during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and stay-at-home orders.

“How well can you evaluate your team through video as opposed to practice and drills?” Tucker was asked.

“Some things,” he replied, “you can only evaluate in practice.”

When that might begin remains unknown.
