On today's Current Sports with Al Martin Segment of the Day, we dissect the Michigan State football loss to Arizona State on Saturday. Has head coach Mark Dantonio lost the magic that once made him one of the most feared coaches in the Big Ten Conference? Can MSU rebound after a heartbreaking defeat at home, in which the celebrations were in place to praise Dantonio as the all-time winningest coach in MSU football program history. We discuss.

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin Segment of the Day we pay tribute to one of our most memorable guests; amputee MMA fighter Ronald Mann. Mann was a former United States Army emergency room medic who lost his leg in a motorcycle accident during time off duty. Mann captured the Korea-wide Army Tae Kwon Do championship for his division, using martial arts as his release and main purpose in life.
