    Re: Point shaving vs. Toledo

    I thought that story was the other way around...that Toledo was accused of this.

    Re: Point shaving vs. Toledo

    Yeah....last I heard, multiple Toledo players were being investigated for point shaving a few years ago, possibly including the 3OT game.

    Re: Point shaving vs. Toledo

    Toledo players have been accused of point shaving, and it was in the timeframe of the triple OT game in 2006.

    Six former Toledo basketball, football players charged in point-shaving scheme - ESPN

    But they don't mention our game, or any games, specifically.

    Edit: They show a list of basketball games that are being investigated, but no list of football games. They mention a GMAC bowl game but that's about it.

    Re: Point shaving vs. Toledo

    They've been investigating this for 2 years. It just took this long for them to officially charge them.

    Re: Point shaving vs. Toledo

    We didn't cover that game anyway and if they were point shaving they would have wanted us to cover it.

    That game alone should have been the sign that 2006 was going to be a long, long year.

    I love how calling someone a squawk troll or something similar on this site is similar/comparable to calling someone a "commy" back in the 60s and 70s.
