    Its not rediulous. Santonio holmes, clarret, this guy, and a pretty long list of other guys that i cant even name off the top of my head. Face it OSU doesnt have a great tract record right now.

    I didnt call it a criminal program. I just said another ohio state criminal. I think Tressel runs a clear program its just hes had a bad run with character issue guys over the last few years.

    I don't really think that's the case though. Malcom Jenkins, James Laurinaitis, Brian Robiskie... can't get much more high character than that.

    That's because of the biased media coverage on ESPN...

    Boone? Has anyone hear ever known a college-age person (non-athlete) that was arrested for being drunk or doing something stupid while drunk? I have. It happens. 18 to 23 year "kids" do dumb things sometimes.

    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.

    You are throwing out a lot of comments, but cannot even give names. I'll give ya one... Nathan Williams (freshman) arrested for shoplifting a few weeks before this years bowl game.

    Here we go... Maurice Clarett. Clarett and Boone. There are the bookends. Fill it in. There are so many (long list), shouldn't be too hard (haha).

    I can give names but you were asking for % of people from every division 1 school.

    Heres just what I could find on google by searching "List of ohio state football players to get arrested"

    Obviously there isnt a list but it only took me 2 pages to come up with those 4 names.

    Antonio Henton

    T.J. Downing

    Louis Irizarry

    Ira Guilford

    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.

    I shouldnt even have brought it up I guess.

    Ohio state is the classiest school in history of sports and obviously their recent track record is just over exposure and jealously on the part of everyone.
