Craig Evans

Former Michigan State defensive tackle Craig Evans joined Current Sports host Al Martin on the air Thursday afternoon, coming to the aid of head coach Mark Dantonio in light of the ESPN "E:60" report. The report details alleged mishandling of sexual assault claims within Dantonio's program. Evans played for the Spartans from 2014-15 before leaving the program due to "personal reasons" back in April of 2016. Evans says that he was kicked-off the team due to problems with marijuana use.

Tonight's "Current Sports with Al Martin" 2 Minute Drill brings you postgame coverage from tonight's Michigan State men's basketball win over Penn State. It took a 52 point, comeback effort in the second half to get the dub. However, all of the attention was, yet again, focused on Spartans head coach Tom Izzo and his response to the ESPN "E:60" report, which calls into question the program's integrity.

The "Current Sports with Al Martin" 2 Minute Drill reports from Friday night's Michigan State men's basketball win over Wisconsin. The game was secondary to the trying week that it has been for the university in wake of the Larry Nassar sex abuse scandal. The week was made even more challenging when an ESPN report was released, highlighting a perceived lack of accountability when it comes to sexual abuse within the Spartans men's basketball team and football program. 

 Head coaches Tom Izzo and Mark Dantonio both addressed the media in what was an emotional and tense room.

Michigan State University graduate, now SportsCenter host on ESPN, Jemele Hill, made national headlines earlier this week when she called President Donald Trump a white supremacist via Twitter. ESPN issued a statement noting that Hill's comments do not represent the company and that they had addressed it with Hill. This morning on Twitter President Trump said ESPN "is paying a really big price for its politics (and bad programming). People are dumping it in RECORD numbers. Apologize for untruth."
