Public figures love talking a lot while actually saying nothing. In the college football world, this is commonly referred to as coachspeak. And when the media criticizes a coach for something previously said, the result can be more guarded interviews.

Sometimes, the reactions are unfair. But the high-and-mighty mindset of college football coaches regarding transfers only continues to look more foolish.

The latest example comes from Mel Tucker, who Bruce Feldman of The Athletic reported is leaving Colorado University to become the new head football coach at Michigan State.

That's fine.
