Let’s face it; football players both in college and NFL haven’t had the best run these past few months.  For a few weeks it seemed like a new player was doing something stupid on a daily basis.  Players were caught doing everything from assaulting loved-ones to publicly fighting or doing obscene things on campus.  The...
