You Should Get Your Behind Kicked. You Across The Ocean!

Given the Miami-Florida International brawl over the weekend, this blog decided it'd be a timely topic to give its rankings for the biggest thug programs in college football over the last 10 years. For this blog, nothing is more aggravating than having to read (or avoid reading) about courtroom proceedings in the Sports page. A huge drain on this blog's patience, even if the newspaper (or website, or TV program) is just a reflection of the real world. Sports should be a diversion, not an aggravation like reading about delinquents.

Most of these links speak for themselves. It was a highly subjective ranking system. Very possible this blog missed a bunch. Also very possible that it has this order "wrong." If there's any huge rivals or annoyed home fans out there that would switch these up, bring it on.

Top 10 Thug Programs, Last 10 Years:

1. Miami. Enough said. Easily the biggest "thug culture" in collegiate football. This blog is pretty sure that orange jumpsuits were designed to mimic Miami's jerseys.

2. Wisconsin. This is sad. This blog has been pretty close to the situation, and this is barely the tip of the iceberg as far as off-field incidents. Madison newspapers have a bare minimum of one football and courtroom-related story per month. Only avoided #1 due to Miami being Mean Machine 2000. Wisconsin also seems to limit their transgressions to off-field activities, whereas Miami wears their degenerate colors on and off the field.

3. Florida State. Actually fell in this regard lately. Free Shoe University has been fairly well-behaved the last couple years.

4. Florida International. Program's only been around 4 years. Baiting Miami into a fight isn't tough to do. Being seen as the bad guys and instigators when Miami's involved is very tough to do. This blog mostly blames U of M, but FIU's players had extremely poor behavior, though were at least disciplined enough not to celebrate their ridiculous actions afterward. Probably the worst on-field behavior per year of existence in the NCAA.

5. Clemson

6. South Carolina

7. Ohio State

8. USC

9. Colorado

10. Marshall

Truthfully, there are a couple more Florida colleges that belong on that list.

I lived down there for a few years and let me tell you, those students would easily pass as inmates with the jumpsuits or not.

Degrees have no value anymore, thank God mines from Mc Donald's.
