If you're looking for the runaway leader in off-field troubles, look no further than Penn State.
According to an ESPN study of Pennsylvania criminal records, 46 Nittany Lion players have faced 163 criminal charges since 2002 and 27 have been convicted of or have pleaded guilty to a combined 45 counts.
In 2007 alone, 17 players were charged with 72 crimes, with nine guilty pleas.
Joe Paterno, when asked about the disturbing numbers, told Steve Delsohn of ESPN's "Outside The Lines" that the network was on a "witch hunt."
The centerpiece of the "Outside The Lines" report chronicled an incident last year when several Penn State players forced their way into an apartment and attacked several people attending a party, including one individual who tried to break up the altercation and was knocked unconscious after being hit in the head with a beer bottle. While unconscious, police say the man was repeatedly punched in the head.
Paterno is entering the final year of his contract and the speculation continues that this season will be the last for the 81-year-old coach. After watching the "Outside The Lines" report, which you can view by clicking here, you have to think Penn State officials have had enough and are ready to send Paterno into retirement.
