Al tells you why all of the questions lie on the offensive side of the football. Also, how many more years do Spartan fans have left with Dantonio as the head coach?

William Strampel, the ex-dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine, was the first person charged after Michigan’s attorney general launched an investigation 1½ years ago into how Michigan State handled complaints against Nassar, who pleaded guilty to molesting patients and possessing child pornography.
