New developments continue to emerge in the fallout from the Larry Nassar sexual assault scandal that has rocked Michigan State University. 

 


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.

John Engler has been interim president of Michigan State University for just two full days...but his appointment is already generating animosity.  On Tuesday, a student march on the Hannah administration building culminated with the delivery of a letter calling for Engler’s resignation.

On Feb. 5, former Michigan Governor John Engler officially takes over as the interim president of Michigan State University.  In  accepting the post, Engler vowed to “treat every survivor and every student as I would my own daughter.”

That pledge is on the mind of every parent with a child now attending MSU...and everyone who will send their own daughters – and sons – to campus as an incoming freshman.

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 Larry Nassar scandal has resulted in a slew of investigations. So many, that it’s hard to keep up with them all. The Michigan Attorney General’s Office, the NCAA, and the US Board of Education are all looking into MSU’s handling of Nassar, plus members of Congress like Senator Gary Peters and Representative Mike Bishop have called for investigations into the US Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics.

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.
