I really had no intention to write about college athletics, but last week I came upon an alarming statistic:
In the six years that Urban Meyer has been head football coach at the University of Florida, 27 different collegiate football players (or should I say student-athletes?) have been arrested, with a grand total of 30 arrests.
So while I get that the Reggie Bush-Heisman Trophy-USC-Pete Carroll story is interesting, sells papers, gets the clicks, calls into question USC's football history and starts the "Is USC a dirty program?" debate, I'm a bit more concerned and troubled by the statistic mentioned above.
