Today on "Current Sports with Al Martin," O-H-I-O rung more to the tune of "oh no" on Saturday for Michigan State Spartan fans. It was an old-fashioned barn-burning when MSU headed down to play Ohio State for the de facto Big Ten East title. What went wrong is assessed today by Al, and the answer is simultaneously simple and complex. Across college football, Michigan State wasn't the only victim. As the rankings begin to illuminate who might be one of the final four teams, engineer Isaac Constans has a new take on why the Buckeyes trampled the Spartans, and the win might carry more significance for the final standings than was previously thought. Al and Isaac swap ideas on situations that could lead to different playoff outcomes. Following that, Seth Newman, pregame host and sideline reporter for the Spartan Sports Network, is part of the crew at the halfway mark, and he provides views from the field. While Al and he have some fun talking about the game in depth, they also try to play clairvoyants, predicting the future for MSU football. Once that conversation wraps up, all that's left is a quick call and "Weekend Winners" for this edition of Current Sports.
