B1G Blotter, Purdue Football

With the arrest of Sean Collins for allegedly hitting a woman at a bar, Purdue has the dubious distinction of pulling into a first-place tie in the Big Ten for the most athletes arrested in the last two years.

According to, here are the athletes from each Big Ten school who have been arrested since Aug. 3, 2010 (when their very worthy project began):

These arrests cover all sports, but most are football players.

* Penn State’s listing is woefully incomplete, of course, though the list just pertains to current athletes at the school. We’ll name the Nittany Lions the default champions anyway. Amusingly, one of Penn State’s arrests (Clint Gyory) is the Nittany Lion mascot.

Update: August 1 numbers are here.
