Phone Lines, Mateen Cleaves, MSU Men's Basketball, Adam Biggers, Malik McDowell, NFL Draft and Heisman Finalists.

Think back to the days that the Current Sports' phone lines were actually functional. Ah, good times. Today's show is marked by a bit of humor as Al and engineer Isaac Constans try to play around the finicky equipment. First though, the details of the Mateen Cleaves, former MSU basketball star, sexual assault case are revealed, and Cleaves was found innocent for now. Al explores whether or not that's the end of it. Onto less important matters, the conversation moves over to East Lansing where the MSU men's basketball team will try to up its performance following a disconcertingly close game against Oral Roberts. Persevering through the phone problems, Adam Biggers of Today's U Sports finds his way onto the show in order to discuss the college football situation around the Big Ten. Hear his and Isaac's evaluation of draft-bound MSU defensive tackle Malik McDowell. Finally, the Heisman finalists have been announced, and predictions are made on the air for who will take home college football's highest individual award.
