Scandal in East Lansing. What else is new? ML, Marc and Shawn chop it up, while Joe remains the master of his domain.

STRAIGHT DOPE: ML starts with an update on the college football coach from Michigan who is on suspension – and it’s not who you might think.

ML is ready to rebrand after years of saying: “You can’t spell ‘MeL’ without ‘ML.’” Now that the “S” in “MSU” stands for “Scandal,”

ML offers a harsh critique of the university’s handling of the Mel Tucker debacle.

Shawn had a farewell column for a colleague teed up when he got advance warning that USA Today was about to drop a bomb on the Spartan football program. Listen and learn what he did next.

Tucker offered a defense of his actions, firing back at his accuser Brenda Tracy.

Marc, Shawn and ML scrutinize and analyze his response.Shawn explains why MSU could have – and should have – suspended Tucker way before Sunday.

ML hammers MSU for a press conference that generated more questions than answers. He again calls for the university to tear down the Green Wall, a subject he wrote about last year. Here’s a link to that column.

An MSU beat writer covered his last game Saturday. Find out whether he’s second-guessing himself or grateful he got out of Dodge just as disaster hit.

Elsewhere in the news, ML criticizes District Detroit for its “Promise. Delay. Repeat” pattern.
