Florida State’s Jameis Winston Accused of Felony Point Shaving
Updated Nov 7, at 5: A suspension from baseball for stealing crab legs from a grocery store. Like this latest episode, for instance. Published Nov 7, at Point shaving scandals have corrupted the college sports landscape before. For instance, he posted before most other outlets that LeBron James would be going back to Cleveland.
Ridiculously unreliable sources say Jameis Winston shaved points http: There's plenty not to like about Jameis Winston, but if you believe reports from Incarcerated Bob, that's a "you problem. Apparently the fraud incarcerated Bob is the source on that Jameis story so I take it all back. Bad job by me. If it's all some lame hoax from Incarcerated Bob, that blows. I do find it funny that people are taking a story sourced by a guy called Incarcerated Bob more seriously than one from Darren Rovell though.
Comes from Incarcerated Bob who just guesses stuff wrong.. Running with that Incarcerated Bob story is no different than being angry at an Onion story. The allegation in question … Jameis tanked the 1st half of the FSU vs. Of course, point-shaving is illegal … but it seems UAB is also interested to see if Rabb was gambling on college sports at all — a huge no-no for active college athletes.
But I find it very comical that the source is being attacked because of the type of person he is, but on the same line of thinking we are suppose to believe that Winston is a believable individual. Whether this is true or not, Winston has sit himself up for all kinds of allegations being aimed at him.
Do I personally believe that he would be capable of something like this? He is a creation of FSU and Fisher. The kid thinks he is untouchable. And as of today, he is correct.

Close games a rarity. Whether opposing teams would even show up at all might have been a legitimate Vegas bet. Because of the way Jerry Tarkanian stood his ground as NCAA investigators snooped around, trying to find evidence tying him to dirty money, hot tub scandals, smarmy gamblers, boosters and the like, UNLV, and by extension, his players even, became the villains of college basketball.
They were reviled by many who supported established powers like Duke, North Carolina and Kansas. But more than that, they were loved by those who realized, even then as history has since shown, that the NCAA were not necessarily the good guys. Along the way, the white towel — which nobody ever quite understood, not that it really mattered — became a thing. The following season, the nation stood riveted as UNLV and Tarkanian — not necessarily against all odds, but definitely, defiantly, against NCAA wishes — was poised for a repeat.
Going into the final at , having beaten opponents by an average of But touted as the greatest college basketball team of all time, UNLV tightened up in the face of immense historical pressure, falling to an excellent Mike Krzyzewski-coached Duke program by the slimmest of margins, Duke avenged its embarrassing point loss to the Rebels from the year before — still the biggest margin of victory in a Division I championship game in NCAA history and the first and only time a D-I team has scored more than points in a final.
Daniels was promptly caught buying crack cocaine. Tarkanian had to announce he could never play at UNLV. It was further revealed that Daniels was lured to UNLV by a prominent gambler who had twice been convicted of sports gambling. Tarkanian had warned the man to stay away from his players.
But clearly, his passion was in college, where he could impact young men and young minds, where he could truly practice the craft of teaching the game of basketball. Tarkanian finished his career fairly far from the bright lights of Las Vegas at his alma mater, Fresno State. From he coached the Bulldogs, before retiring after having led them to six straight win seasons.
Finally, after he was gone from the game, the NCAA took the last shot, claiming to have finally gotten their man. Much later than he should have been, Jerry Tarkanian was elected to the Hall of Fame. He finished his career with a Division I record of , among the best of all-time. He also finished his career etched as an icon onto the walls of college basketball history.
