    Like SI's big expose on this, there's no context.

    Is the arrest rate for athletes any different than the arrest rate for the general population of men at these ages? I think that some calculated the SI college football numbers and discovered it was actually less.

    But, hey, whatever gives people a foundation to assert their moral superiority ...

    Also, they don't take into account the number in terms of a percentage of athletes. Kinda silly to compare college football, in which each of 120+ teams has 100 or so players, to major league baseball, with 30 teams of 25 to 40-man rosters.
