Current Sports tackles the comments made by Michigan State Board of Trustees Vice Chairman Joel Ferguson, in regards to the Board supporting President Lou Anna K. Simon in wake of the Larry Nassar sex abuse scandal.

Today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" is centered on comments made by Michigan State Board of Trustees Vice Chairman Joel Ferguson, in regards to the Board supporting Lou Anna K. Simon in wake of the Larry Nassar sex abuse scandal. Al expresses his confusion when it pertains to the context of the statement. Were the comments insensitive and what does it say about the leadership of MSU? We also hear from many callers who are troubled from Ferguson's comments. 

WKAR News Reporter / Producer Katie Cook then joins the show directly from the Ingham County Courtroom to describe what day six of the Larry Nassar sentencing has been like. You will also hear a very emotional poem that was read during today's statements. 

That, and more, throughout this hour of Current Sports.
