KSU bans players from Facebook

By mrasor Published: May 20, 2007

In the aftermath of the Toledo point-shaving scandal, Kent State has banned its football team -- and even the support staff -- from, the social networking Web site adored by college students nationwide.
At Toledo, shady bookmakers supposedly contacted Scooter McDougal through Facebook. He went on to recruit fellow players to participate in the scandal where they were allegedly paid thousands for sitting out a game.
Several Zips players are still signed up on Facebook, so it does not appear Akron also has restricted its players.
This information comes from a softball teammate of mine. It seems reliable.
