Episode Summary

College Sports Scandals
Sports-related scandals involving gambling, sex, murder, recruiting violations and drugs have made headlines throughout the years and brought dishonor to college athletics. Hosted by Trace Adkins, CMT Most Shocking: College Sports Headlines examines felonious activity and corruption on campuses where collegiate sports programs have been plagued with point shaving, murder, rape, recruiting violations and volatile actions by coaches such as Woody Hayes and Bobby Knight. This CMT original program includes an interview with U.S. Sen. John McCain about proposed legislation to ban gambling on college sports. He tells CMT, "Look, I don't pretend to be the expert on this situation, but I don't know how we can ignore the college presidents and the coaches association who say this is their highest priority." McCain adds, "This is a terrible temptation for our players, and we don't want the temptation in their paths." Topics include a sports-related murder and cover-up at Baylor University, as well as charges at the University of Colorado in Boulder for recruiting violations and rampant rape accusations against the football team.moreless
