Fresh out of the oven, the last "Current Sports with Al Martin" episode of the week is a hot one. And hot off the press is the latest batch of College Football Playoff Rankings. Diving right into it, Al and engineer Isaac Constans again look at the newest scenarios and situations that could shape a tantalizing playoff scene. With it being rivalry week, there's a lot that could change. Al also gives an impassioned speech after hearing the courtroom news that Larry Nassar, a Michigan State and USA Gymnastics doctor, plead guilty to counts of sexual assault. At Current Sports, the #MeToo campaign hits home. Then, two younge men who made national headlines stop by Studio S. You may have heard about the decisions of four Lansing Catholic football players to knee, but the aftermath is still unfolding. Al gets the scoop from former Lansing Catholic athletes Michael Lynn III and Matthew Abdullah on why they've decided to transfer schools in the wake of their protest. New details emerge involving the school's response to concerns about racism. Closing the show on a lighter note, cue the music. Al and Isaac give out a big "thank you" on Thanksgiving eve.
