You'll never hear this reported but Navy consistently bends the rules when recruiting football players.  The number of arrests in the last 10 years is astounding.  More than half of their team is stashed in prep schools essentially redshirting and admissions standards have been greatly compromised.
We are the storm.

Some, not the majority, and for academic preparation. And they are graduating.  Not unlike Cornell shipping them to the local community college.

Doing a PG year (or grey shirting) is not a new phenomena.

Point being they've lowered their standards to get players.

Oh c'mon Buck...do you read this stuff ?  It has nothing to do with lower standards.  You'll find these types of allegations at every institution in the country. 

UPDATE: The charges against Graham and Bush have been dismissed.

UPDATE #2: Tate was found not guilty on Thursday (March 20, 2014).
