    I started this thread because this is a developing story that could get worse, all because making money is the only thing that matters...

    1 in 3 high-profile athletes threatened by bettors

    People want to bet. They want to win. Now, our college kids are being threatened by losers. Great.

    Pulled from a post @LonghornCatholic put on another thread, it seems germane to this one too.


    Some college athletes get threatened, while others just wallow in the gambling their own selves.

    I'm pretty sure this is a parody account on Twitter and the Baylor story is made up.

    LHAB the Espn link by posted does appear to be genuine. That is the link that prompted my reply. What about my reply did you not like?

    Based on last decades of Bailor crap the story was more believable than a story about Jimbo's aggy trophy case.

    Sad but not surprising. Is one of the issues with legal betting.
