NCAA COUNTING ON PATERNO, SMITH TO OUTLAW COLLEGE BETTING
Published January 25, 2000
The NCAA is "counting on the support" of former Univ. of NC men's basketball coach Dean Smith and Penn State Univ. football coach Joe Paterno in its campaign "to outlaw betting on college sports," according to sources of Jeff German of the LAS VEGAS SUN. Sources added that Smith and Paterno "have been invited" to a news conference Wednesday on Capitol Hill to announce the "introduction of a betting ban" bill "aimed at" NV's "$2.3 billion-a-year sports betting industry." Wayne Mehl, a DC lobbyist for the Nevada Resort Association, on Smith and Paterno's presence: "They're [NCAA] bringing out the big guns." But DC-based American Gaming President Frank Fahrenkopf said that he "doesn't believe support from big-name university coaches and presidents will hurt the industry's stance" against the bill. Fahrenkopf: "The college coaches and presidents can just reinforce the fact that there's a college gambling problem" (LAS VEGAS SUN, 1/24).
