So, the two big news items of the day were the release of the SI article that found (gasp!) that many players on college football teams have a criminal past. Here's the link to the article. It's a really good read. And while TCU doesn't habe any players charged right now, they are in the midst of a messy legal battle over an alleged sexual assault back in 2006 and whether the school had a relaxed policy towards athletes, so it's not like the program is very clean, either. Note: the only reason why I'm making note of this is because other outlets have done the whole "See! TCU does it the right way!" herp derp, which is a bunch of crap.
And while I'm hesitant to even bring it up, Cowherd said yesterday that Oregon is about to have the reign of fire of the NCAA come down on them.
So, should someone's past play a role in which players you recruit?
