Buckner Consultant Dr. Robert Mathner Published in Journal of Contemporary Athletics Regarding Sports Wagering in College Athletics

During the fall 2013 semester, Buckner athletics consultant and associate professor at Troy University Dr. Robert Mathner published an article in the Journal of Contemporary Athletics concerning sports wagering behavior among NCAA Division I athletics trainers. Specifically, Mathner and co-authors Christina Martin and James Allen reveal sports wagering, a potentially serious violation of NCAA rules, remains a popular form of gambling not only among student-athletes but also NCAA Division I athletic trainers, with almost 72.2% of ATC’s noting that they have engaged in gambling, sports wagering or other betting activities during the past twelve months, almost 40% stating that they placed a monetary bet on any sporting event at some point, and 13% indicating that they had placed monetary bets on sport fantasy leagues.

  1. Will you guys be blogging with commentary about NCAA decisions again? Lately this blog has just been a billboard for the firm.

    • Yes. We are still commenting on NCAA decisions. However, we do not provide commentary on cases where we represent an involved party or institution.
