How significant is an early no. 1 ranking for Tom Izzo? Also, is Mark Dantonio deserving of being named college football's coach of the year? Then, Current Sports has a special featuring John Madden, Michigan State band director, who has a unique perspective on the accomplishments of Dantonio. Al and Isaac revisit their high school basketball days and welcome Brian Calloway, Lansing State Journal prep reporter, to preview the upcoming season. Finally, the duo discuss Lebron James' new contract with Nike, a record-setting deal.
