From the immediate reaction to try talk about other programs, a small sample suggests, maybe, probably so.
You are missing the gigantic point, which I am amazed by because you seem very intelligent on the baseball forums.
Urban Meyer did not bring a specific "culture" with him. This exists everywhere in college football, actually not college football - all of human life. Michigan, Toledo, Notre Dame (remember the girl that was raped by a player and later killed herself because other football players were threatening her?) Auburn, LSU, Alabama, USC, etc. This is not an OSU problem, it is just a part of humanity. 18-22 year olds get in trouble. When I was in college at Dayton I witnessed many a fight.
I read a report that Carlos Hyde was hit in the face by a woman and instead of reacting he walked away - why does Urban Meyer not get credit for that? Oh, that's right - because it doesn't fit your lame agenda.
The fact of the matter is, even though young people all over get in similar trouble (still laughing about the fake ID one) but they don't get any attention because they aren't in the public eye.
