So many recent off-the-field problems with college football players, and not just minor charges...rape, assault, kidnapping.

These players should be locked up and permanently banned from ever playing college football again, at any level, if their sentences are short term.

These so-called "men" had tremendous talent, received "full rides", and blew it by being criminals. Give their scholarships to students that want them and respect their worth, not punks that use the football programs to get to the next level.

There is that small problem with courts. You know, those "criminals" have to be proven guilty. How annoying.
