Every team has its issues with players getting into trouble. Sometimes we hear about it; other times it is dealt with internally.
However, the SEC has had several high-profile incidents where players were cuffed and stuffed and the press got a hold of it and burned it into the ground.
Last year, one of the highlights was the three Tennessee players who decided to rob someone outside the 7-Eleven with a pellet gun. Two of the players—safety Janzen Jackson and WR Nu'Keese Richardson—were prized freshman recruits.
Also last year, Florida DE and current Bengal Carlos Dunlap was given a DUI just days before the enormous SEC title game.
Several Auburn players were also arrested for DUI, and there was another case against RB Eric Smith for disorderly conduct.
If you think it ends with last season, think again.
This year it was Georgia's turn to get hit by the DUI bug.
Sophomore RB Dontavius Jackson and end Tavarres King were the latest to get pulled over by the campus police and be given DUIs and underage citations.
I know other conferences have had their share of trouble off the field, but it seems to me like the SEC is one of the worst at keeping their thugs, hmmm, I mean, players out of jail.
And to think, I didn't even mention Jeremiah Masoli...
