Background Checks for Football Players?

Given the string of arrests this past year, perhaps UT should consider criminal background checks on recruits? This article briefly touches on the issue, and it's interesting to see what coaches fall for and against such checks. Richt at Georgia is actually against background checks. That's a very interesting stand for a teacher of young men. His stated reason is a level playing field, but could it be "don't ask, don't tell" me if I've got a criminal on my roster? Could Tennessee's off field issues have been the root cause of the season of missed expectations?
