If you can't grasp the difference, you're ignorant and just don't care.

In three years to have issues with three high profile players in the off-season is going to seem worse because it gets more attention.

So because of who it was we can blame Miles?

It's obvious we need to stop recruiting players that have first names that start with the letter "J".

That lists of players that have been arrested on first glance contains at least 4 first round draft picks, not to mention a Heisman trophy winner in Manziel.

I'm not looking at the straight numbers, but rather perception and why it feels different.

The perception of Miles isn't just based off the arrest number, but a perception of a lack of control....which runs deeper than just arrests...IE, Mathieu.

Look man, I agree with you. You're trying to back your case with stats, I get it. Thats what stat guys do. I'm just saying stats don't always tell the whole story.

To not include the Mathieu drama in a discussion about Miles and his control over the team because he wasn't on the team when he got arrested is just turning a blind eye to something very obvious.

Not at all...because they're high profile guys from the same team in a short span.

Doesn't equal reality when you look at the numbers objectively.

Although when did T BOB get his DUI? 2009?

No, but that's more first round draft picks and heisman winners than LSU has arrested. The guys on that list aren't a bunch of scrubs.

Anyone who has been around sports long enough knows that stats don't tell the whole story.

You're not looking at things objectively because you are dismissing the entire Mathieu cluster-F.

You want to back your point, I get it....don't try and convince people the Mathieve debacle didn't happen under Miles' watch.

Ok include Mathieu, we're still one of the lowest.

And A&M is getting hammered for it, as will LSU. Deservedly so. Doesn't matter if it is worse or not, it looks worse.
