College Football: Breaking the Rules Off the Field

2 Mar

While professional football is stealing most of the football headlines right now thanks to the NFL Combine and the pending lockout set to commence later this week, college football is generating headlines of its own that are worthy of our attention.  The practice of oversigning high school football recruits has come to the forefront of late, and now a special report was released today by Sports Illustrated with the help of CBS.  The article is a fascinating read and deserving of your time if you’re a fan of collegiate sports.  And if your favorite college football program is in the Preseason Top 25 rankings, where do they sit in SI’s rankings of the teams with the most players charged of a crime?  As a fan, would you be okay with your team sacrificing character off the field for results on the field?

The Big Ten may not be able to compete with the SEC on the football field, but it blows away the SEC in terms of having more players possessing criminal mugshots.
