According to many Michigan fans, Urban Meyer runs a dirty program filled with arrest issues. Michigan on the other hand is a clean program where their student-athletes perform with the upmost integrity, rarely if ever running afoul of the law.
^Good example of a thread where Michigan fans perpetuate said mentality

According to ArrestNation.com
OSU arrests since Meyer's hire on Nov. 23, 2011:
Bri’onte Dunn (July 2012)
Dominic Clarke (January 7, 2012)
Jack Mewhort (June 2, 2012)
Jacob Stoneburner (June 2, 2012)
Storm Klein (July 6, 2012)

Michigan arrests since Hoke's hire on Jan. 11, 2011:
Fitzgerald Toussaint (July 21, 2012)
Frank Clark (June 2012)
Will Campbell (April 7, 2012)
Josh Furman (February 11, 2012)
Marvin Robinson (November 2011)
Darryl Stonum (May 6, 2011)

Brady Hoke has 10 extra months on the job, but one more arrest at this point. Pretty dang comparable if you ask me. Just something to consider when you hear from a Michigan fan about how the OSU program is "thug-ridden" and "full of criminals,"  which I'm sure you'll have to hear often over the next few years, compared to Michigan's angels in winged helmets.

Arrests and criminality are an issue among nearly every elite college football team, it's an unfortunate reality, but it is the reality. The doesn't make it right, nor am I trying to glorify it. I just think there needs to be some objectivity about the fact that this is becoming an issue everywhere, it's not simply a "Meyer issue" or an "SEC issue" as some would like to believe.
