MSU Fans Ranked Unhappiest in Big Ten; MSU Football; Kyrie Irving Trade to Celtics; LeBron James; Lansing Everett; Chad Foster; Jason Fuller.

Are you happy with your football team? According to ESPN, if you're a fan of the Michigan State Spartans, you're not.

Today on "Current Sports with Al Martin," Al tries to play psychologist on the psyche of MSU fans.

Is ESPN right, wrong, or somewhere in between saying that Spartan fans are "distraught"? Engineer Isaac Constans lends a few examples for comparison of fan bases that might also might not be pleased with their ranking. However, the two agree that the team, and its fans, have certainly dug a deep hole to climb out of.

Then, new Lansing Everett football coach Chad Foster starts off his first year in a bit of a rut, himself. Despite trying to rebound from a 2-7 year, Foster explains why this is his dream job when joining the show.

Don't miss the Current Sports preview for the Everett Vikings, one of many to come as high school coaches join the show throughout the week.

Al and Isaac also give an idea of their thoughts on the Kyrie Irving-Isaiah Thomas swap between the Eastern Conference's top two teams that has NBA fans' heads spinning.

Ending the show, serviceman Jason Fuller tells listeners about the Patriot Shootout, a golf event that is raising money for the families of wounded and killed military members.
