  • New DOJ investigation into 2018 game

    Nope. Not UC but someone long forgotten pops up here.

    Short version:

    DOJ has indicted a Columbo crime family mobster in NY for trying to fix a game in 2018. I haven't found the DOJ link to the case yet and this article doesn't mention which schools are involved.

    However, In this article the name Varez Ward pops up in reference to a game fixing attempt. Ward was arrested. I seem to remember this happening but for some reason it never got posted here. Ward was a commit to UC under Cronin before issues forced him to stay home in Texas. He later transferred to Auburn. This is where the game fixing attempt came in.

    Am I missing something? How can Ward be a Huggins commit at UC when Huggins has been gone since 2005?

          The Feds were investigating Ward in 2012 for possible point shaving:

          I can't find if he was ever convicted; just indicted.

            I find it interesting that the DOJ is not giving up the schools or players involved in the 2018 case., Just the people involved with bribes. Tells me they haven't closed the case yet
