On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" MSU head football coach Mark Dantonio finally let out some news about what's going on with the program in the face of sexual assault allegations, but there wasn't much in it. Some MSU fans have taken to question why, but to that, Al asks, "what did you expect?" Engineer Isaac Constans and Current Sports production assistant Connor Clark similarly take no issue with the highly formal release, even though they do say that maybe it could have been made earlier. Also, the Detroit Pistons and New Orleans Pelicans face each other tonight, and Al and Isaac provide the updates on their two favorite teams. Chris Solari, Michigan State reporter for the Detroit Free Press, tells Al what he's learned about the Dantonio statement and speaks on what tonight might hold for MSU men's basketball. After that chat, Al, Isaac and Connor give their expectations for the State-Illinois Big Ten match up. Finally, the show closes with a "stay or go" segment that involves freshman phenom Miles Bridges and Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins.
