Revisiting an old topic with brand new developments, "Current Sports" today takes shape around the Louisville basketball scandal.

However, Al and engineer Isaac Constans keep it real, saying that's no excuse for what happened. They even go a step further. Then, Al brings to the show Terry Kildea, director of Hawk Hallow golf properties and USGA rules official, to preview the U.S. Open and describe golfing season. Live updates flow through the show courtesy of intern Jacob Herbert. The closing piece is no surprise: Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather will duke it out in a long-awaited fight. Catch the picks and expectations from Al, Isaac and Jacob.
