Arrest report: Final B1G numbers for 2015
This is one category no team wants to have the most of.
Who led the B1G in arrests/citations? After the year that was in Piscataway, it shouldn’t have come as much of a surprise that Rutgers topped the list.
In September alone, Rutgers had seven players charged with crimes, not to mention that coach Kyle Flood was suspended for impermissible contact with a university professor. The program’s eight arrests/citations tied with Florida for the most in college football in 2015.
Perhaps surprising to some was the fact that Purdue and Rutgers — both of whom finished in last place of their respective divisions — made up for 13 of the B1G’s 30 arrests in 2015. The only B1G teams that didn’t have an arrest/citation in 2015 were Maryland, Minnesota and Northwestern.
The numbers, according to arrestreport.com, revealed 30 B1G arrests/citations in 2015. The stats don’t, however, take into account arrests made after a player has been released by a team.
For example, former Michigan lineman Logan Tuley-Tillman was released from the team before he was charged with three felony accounts for filming a portion of a sexual encounter with a woman without her knowledge and then transmitting it to his personal device without her permission.
Because he was charged after he was released from Michigan, it didn’t count against the team’s total. Whether or not that’s worse for a program with players that are cited for a disorderly house is another discussion.
