I don't think they will do anything to him.  Most of the accusations seem petty other than his drunken use of the "n" word and that is history.  I can see him retiring as he must be nearing 70.

In WI, the coaches rank the officials. I guess this has some good and bad aspects. As a result of the coaches ranking the officials instead of other rules experts, there is a little more emphasis on who is "likeable" or otherwise has a raport with the coach. Refs probably put up with more unsportsmanlike behavior too. Not that being approachable, likeable, and being able to communicate well with coaches is a bad thing. Just saying that the emphasis ends up being different depending upon who is doing the evaluating.
Can't believe that I agree with you on something.

Apparently they do.  College never has a problem with it.

Doesn't appear to be any ruling yet.  I think they are letting it cool down first.

More people died from firearm injuries in the United States last year .................
..................Nearly two-thirds were suicides.

The answer is right there in your statement.  Quick, and for the most part, painless.  A high percentage would have offed themselves anyway, just by a different means. The 2nd cause is suffocation, i.e., hanging.  3rd-Poisoning, though its No.1 for females.
Exactly what I was thinking when I first read buck's post.  I guess buck prefers that they commit suicide by a long, drawn out suffering event.

Doubtful. From what I've read, the action on these wagers isn't considerable enough for "Vegas" types of numbers. My stance on wagering has lessened in some respects over the years, but individually, that's the biggest slippery slope for things you're suggesting. I don't believe the book running these lines is taking any serious money on these, so the idea of a college guy tanking matches to win small amounts wouldn't be very smart.
Wasn't smart for Pete Rose to bet either where major $'s were at stake.

Are the top powers slacking off? Penn State did handle Lehigh, but they lost a match in their dual with Bucknell. And OkState lost a match in their Bedlam dual today. Now we hear that Iowa lost THREE matches against Lehigh. When our heroes let us down, where can we turn?
Iowa 74 was the third stringer 157.  The 197 pounder wasn't Warner who just beat Milkus on a bum ankle.  Stoll is gimpy so sat out.

Looks like Trump's presidency lasted longer than Falcon's forum activity.  Oh the pain he must be going through.

Try placing a rubber snake there in a stealthy position.
