What the hell is wrong with college football?

What the hell is wrong with college football?  As I wait anxiously for the beginning of this season (given the high expectations for my beloved Ohio State Buckeyes), most websites I go to for news have an overwhelming number of stories about college players getting kicked off their teams, etc. for bad behavior.  It used to be a few schools (Miami, to name one) that had trouble, but now it seems they all are.  For example, some recent headlines:

‘Bama linebacker Johns charged with selling cocaine, possessing Ecstasy

Oklahoma State’s Pettigrew pleads guilty to misdemeanors

Brown, Douglas suspended for 2008 season for violating team rules (Ark. St.)

Razorbacks dismiss Fairchild following arrest on misdemeanor charges

Clemson’s McDaniel arrested, charged with aggravated assault, battery

UCF’s Kay suspended from team after weekend arrest

These are just some from one day from just one website!   Not a good case for the “student-athelete.”
