UF Football Team Plays Down It's Status as New Thug U

A University of Miami football player gets a parking ticket and every sports outlet in the country would rush to get the scoop. A University of Florida player getting arrested? Well, no one seems to notice that much despite the fact it's happen to twenty players since Urban Meyer showed up in December of 2004. 

In the same time FSU has had 13 arrests, and Miami only two. That's right two in the past four and a half years, which is one of the few stats we really have to be proud of from that era. 

None of the ways that want you to look though diverts your attention from the fact that their recent arrest record is 1000% higher than so-called "Thug U."
