Bigtime Football and Criminality: Perfect Together

Hello Justin Francis, you’ve made the International Herald Tribune.  When Rutgers football tantalizes the world’s readers, shouldn’t this be a cause for celebration?  Not in the case of young Mr. Francis, a Rutgers recruit from Florida, who found himself charged with robbery, burglary, making terrorist threats and possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes after an incident involving the defensive tackle and several Rutgers students.  Alas, the Francis caper figured not only in the IHT’s news budget but in that of just about every newspaper in New Jersey, from the Home News to the Star Ledger.

Note to Athletic Director Robert Mulcahy: we will be tracking player arrests on an ongoing basis.   We are sure your youngsters will keep us busy.

    Try tracking the Penn State player instead – you will have much more to do if you want to be kept busy. Coach Schiano runs a very clean – albeit not perfectly clean – program.
