Two MSU alums are pulling no punches!

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin we tackle a topic posed from one of our listeners concerning the Mel Tucker being one of the few Black head coaches in the game of football. Al weighs-in, while also citing an NPR piece putting the topic in perspective. Also, former MSU men's basketball walk-on, turned billionaire CEO of 'United Wholesale Mortage', Mat Ishbia, is sounding off on his rivalry with Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert. Ishbia was recently named majority owner of the Phoenix Suns and Gilbert decided to abstain from voting Ishbia in. Both are Spartans, and both don't like one another. And we highlight the MSU women's golf program, which is heading to the NCAA regionals in Florida later this month.
