We all know the Big Ten is poorly managed. Delaney's reign of error has been a total joke. Here is another example. They have had a ref with big problems for years, but they've done nothing.

Now..as an addendum to this story. Today, there is a new angle on this story reported by the LA Times....perhaps linking Pamon to questionable calls in games he officiated this year. This is something you will would never see reported first in the Chicago Tribune, or particularly by Teddy Greenstein, who is a lapdog for Big Ten Commish Delaney and all things Big Ten. Greenstein reported generally on this story today, but he chose to leave out this part.

In today's LA Times:

Big Ten crew under cloud of suspicion
Referee Stephen Pamon is at center of controversy.
By Lonnie White, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
December 20, 2007
Although there has not been any evidence linking Big Ten Conference referee Stephen Pamon to gambling on games, Las Vegas oddsmakers are leery of game-fixing at the college football level.

Two games from the 2007 regular season have come into question regarding Pamon, an officiating crew chief with a history of bankruptcy and gambling: Penn State's victory over Purdue on Nov. 3 and Illinois' upset win over Ohio State on Nov. 10.

"Both games had disproportionate money bet on the teams that benefited from the objectionable calls in those games in Penn State and Illinois," said RJ Bell of Pregame.com.

"On average, 70% of teams end games within one touchdown of the Las Vegas spread," Bell said. "Which means that a single corrupt call that results in one touchdown -- or a touchdown denied to an opponent -- would allow a gambler to win 70% of his bets."

It will be interesting to see the fallout regarding Pamon, whose officiating crew made several questionable calls in both games.
