Like most of us, Mel Tucker has some free time on his hands. 

So the new Michigan State football coach hopped on Twitter Wednesday to conduct a Q&A with Spartan fans. Tucker took questions on everything from his favorite food and his biggest coaching influences to his favorite dog breeds and his goals for next season

One of the most popular questions concerned Michigan State's offense, which grew stale in the final years of the Mark Dantonio era. 

"Will you open up the offense and adapt it to modern day football?" he was asked. 

"Changes are coming," Tucker declared

As for those infamous jet sweeps? 

Naturally, Tucker was also asked about Jim Harbaugh. Specifically, he was asked this: "Have you had a chance to talk to Jim Harbaugh yet, and how much do you already loathe him?"

Tucker's response seemed to indicate he already feels a certain way about the Michigan head coach. 

Other topics of note included Tucker's interest in introducing some new throwback uniforms and perhaps some new helmets as well.
