On this edition of "Current Sports with Al Martin," Al and engineer Ian Hawley debate the firing of Jim Caldwell and discuss the candidates to replace him as the head coach of the Detroit Lions. The Michigan State men's basketball team will take the floor Thursday night against Maryland, and Al talks about the draft stock of standout sophomore Miles Bridges. The Breslin Center's Hall of History gained a new display involving a wax replica of Tom Izzo. Al and Ian talk about the physical appearance of the display, as well as the mixed reactions the exhibit has received. To wrap up the show, Al explores the possibility of Harlon Barnett leaving MSU's football team in favor of a job at Florida State.
