So that so called "Sports Writers" have some perspective on humanity (they seem to get all up in themselves when reporting on things like the Petrino matter).
There are approximately 127 NCAA Division I FBS football coaches:
Percentage of men who admit to committing infidelity in any relationship they've had: 57% - 72 coaches
12% of adults admit to telling lies "sometimes" or "often". [that is 15 coaches]
The profession with the highest number of liars is teaching, with 65% admitting to telling lies, (aren't coaches teachers?)
As of April 2011, approximately 3.5% of American adults identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual, while 0.3% are transgender. [There are 4 coaches who are gay?]
Most college teams have around 125 players on average; a mix of walk-ons and scholarship players.
latest crime rate 3466 crimes per 100,000 residents = .03466 [so for 125 players, there should be 4.33 who commit crimes, anything from simple theft to murder.]
Percent of 12th grade students using marajuana - 6% [at least 7 players]
After marijuana, prescription and over-the-counter medications account for most of the top drugs abused by 12th graders in the past year. Among 12th graders, past year nonmedical use of Vicodin decreased from 9.7% to 8% [about 11 players]
Alcohol use has continued to decline among high school seniors with past-month use falling from 43.5% to 41.2% and alcohol binge drinking (defined as 5 or more drinks in a row in the past 2 weeks) declining from 25.2% to 23.2%. [28 players]
Are we having fun yet? ESPN, Yahoo Sports, Sporting News, stop the manufactured outrage....maybe look at yourself.
