MSU Interim President John Engler testified before a Congressional subcommittee about the changes MSU has put in place to protect amateur athletes following the Larry Nassar abuse scandal. The MiWeek roundtable analyzes what Engler had to say and whether the changes at the University are enough. Plus, the NCAA says the main reason Detroit lost the bid for future men's basketball Final Four games was because the city's hotels did not have the capacity to house each of the four teams in its own hotel.

Brian Calley, is verbally attacking front-runner Atty. Gen. Bill Schuette about how little time he has actually spent on the job over the past eight years.
