What is wrong with the Spartans? That is the question posed by the crew on today's "Current Sports with Al Martin." Al addresses the death of Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski and tells of his own story of a friend's uncle that relates to the unfortunate outcome concerning Hilinski. Then, Al shifts focus towards the MSU men's basketball team in light of the loss to the University of Michigan. Al explains why fans should be concerned after a trying six days last week. Callers also offer their own takes on what Michigan State Men's basketball will need to do to bounce back from a bad week of Big Ten play. The show then ends on a commentary about ESPN's tumultuous year in 2017. That conversation will continue on tomorrow's show.
