I'd venture to guess that at least one OSU student is arrested every weekend. Does that mean the whole school has a problem? How about other schools? Think Ivy League schools don't have arrests due to disorderly and/or drunken behavior?
I invite those throwing accusations to give me the number of guys that have been signed to play for OSU while Tressel has been there. Now give the number of players arrested. Is the percentage loads higher than other D-I football programs or loads higher than % of arrests for all college students. That is the kind of proof that I need to see to convince me. Give me facts, not "long lists", "bad track record", etc.
Just ask a UC fan about the actions of a few becoming the image of an entire program. It doesn't take much reality to create a perception.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
