17 years later, we will never forget those lost in the September 11th attacks. On today's episode of Current Sports with Al Martin, Al discusses the debacle that was the Detroit Lions last night as they were mollywhopped by the New York Jets by a score of 48-17.  Two separate news stories break during the show as a lawsuit alleges that former MSU Athletic Director and current Board of Trustees member George Perles covered up a rape of a former MSU field hockey player by disgraced former doctor Larry Nassar. Steve Yzerman, general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning, has moved into an advisory role and will be returning to Detroit, according to Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press. We conclude the show by playing the audio of  MSU head coach Mark Dantonio's Tuesday morning press conference.
