Which football program is consistently the most thuggish? Who has the most off-the-field problems, arrests, fights, and just lack of any institutional control year after year?

Florida State, I think. What was the one on Real Sports last year that had half the team selling autographed items for money?

Urban Meyer had like, what, 35 player arrests under his command during his six years at Florida?

At LSU, I don't get the impression that the players take Miles all that seriously, as evidenced by the trouble that Jordan Jefferson et. al. got into during the first of the season when they were supposed to be honoring curfew. Then they had a few more arrests later in the season. They just don't seem to fear him that much.

The BCS bowl Committee

They are thieves who are robbing us of the ability to watch a playoff system.

You are def are confused. Never heard that story and I am an FSU alum. Ohio St was caught selling items... maybe that is what you are trying to reference???

The thuggish in BCS era has to be University of Florida. All those big crimes during Meyer's era = HBO Special and reports all over ESPN and other sports news shows. No doubt.

Prior to BCS, Miami would take that title. Since then, the program has cleaned up (thanks to Randy Shannon).

It might have been Ohio State. There was an alum that went to prison for it. It might have been Florida as well. Miami used to be the worst. USC did some bad stuff and no doubt Ohio State though.
