|LSU wants to stay out of this poll|
Take away Ryan Perrilloux (please), and it's been a quiet year away from the field for LSU football.
That certainly hasn't been the case in the past, and is a tribute to Les Miles that off the field headlines have been few and far-between when it comes to the kind of stories that make coaches squirm and fans wonder who's running the ship.
Perrilloux certainly took up enough headlines of his own before Miles finally got enough of it.
Otherwise, the kind of headlines that fans don't want to see have been taking place at other universities across the SEC.
Over at the University of Georgia, sophomore defensive lineman Michael Lemon was dismissed from the Bulldog football team earlier this month after being charged with the felony crime of aggravated battery.
Lemon was the seventh Georgia football player to be arrested in the first seven months of this year.
Nick Saban recently showed senior linebacker Jimmy Johns the door after the Brookhaven, Ms., native was arrested on June 24 and charged with five felony counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance — cocaine — and one felony count of drug possession. The scary thing for Saban is the fact police said one of Johns' alleged drug transactions took place in the parking lot of the UA football complex.
Georgia's seven arrests are the most in the SEC this year. But there are plenty of other programs getting bad publicity.The Web site www.everydayshouldbesaturday.com attempts to keep tabs on the totals. It has created the "Fulmer Cup" (named after Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer), which utilizes a points system to keep track of all the player arrests that occur in major football programs across the country each year. The more serious the crime the more points awarded.
Alabama is at the top of the list at No. 1 with 28 points.
Missouri is next at 21, followed by West Virginia at 19 and Washington State at 17.
Penn State and Virginia have 14 total points, followed by Georgia, Arkansas and Colorado at 12.
Illinois, Nebraska and Tennessee have 11 points.
That is certainly not a top 10 college football fans want to see their team making.
Credit Miles for keeping LSU in the top five among final rankings and recruiting.
Credit Miles even more for keeping LSU out of another certain poll. Believe me, nowadays, that takes just as much work as staying among the top in the other two.
