This week after receiving from.
Playing pro football hall training camp in Ohio removed a photo of Aaron Hernandez from the museum.
Hernandez who's been charged with the murder of 27 year old Oden Lloyd.
It's one of nearly forty NFL players -- have been arrested since the beginning of this year alone.
There have been more than 650.
Arrests involving pro football players just since the year 2000.
One of the most notorious cases was the dog fighting conviction of quarterback Michael Vick who served nearly two years in prison for his crimes.
But it's not just football players who have long rap sheets dozens -- professional baseball basketball players have also been arrested over the last decade.
Including former NBA forward Jason Williams who pled guilty to assault in the shooting death of a limousine driver and who served an eighteen month prison sentence.
-- why do so many of these athletes feel like that they are above the law.
Lou Holtz is a college hall of fame football coach who led Notre Dame to the national championship in 1988.
It also coached at several other schools including Arkansas.
-- in 1978 he suspended three starting players including his two top scorers.
Right before the Orange Bowl because they happen to -- -- team rules they were going against heavily favored Oklahoma.
Well the -- for backs won the game 31 to six -- the chance to speak to coach Holtz earlier.
-- the football players baseball players basketball players get to a level they sometimes feel like that they don't have to play by the rules what's gone wrong.
Well I think whether we're talking about politicians businesspeople -- athletes.
When they become successful they think they've become invisible they go anywhere or do anything they want they also think they've become invincible that nobody's gonna hold them accountable.
Life -- a matter choice as governor.
If you choose to do drug drop honestly futures today have problems in your life.
And these people made bad choices they've never been held accountable its always been somebody else's -- How often can the coach influence these these players and I know it's a little different at the NFL but I'd go back to your experience.
The night before the game you suspended three players.
And everybody thought you're crazy you're suspending your top players and thought well you know did that that kills the chances for the razorbacks to beat the Oklahoma Sooners.
Arkansas won 31 to six it was a real testament character.
Well I think the disciplines not what you do to somebody's what you do for somebody.
And if you overlook certain things you're -- an okay.
This is all right to do that for the rest of the team if you say we have rules and regulations.
That everybody has stood here till.
I did decide to suspend the athletes.
The athletes decided not to play in the game when they chose Dubai late to do right rule.

Remember choices have ramifications but we always have everybody make -- excuses for everybody else well he didn't have a father it was abused -- -- but yet there are thousands of people and -- these same experiences and went on to lead very very successful lives.
Coach urban -- not only a good friend of viewers -- a colleague for many many years and and some people questioned it did Urban Meyer.
To see something and Aaron Hernandez that may be could have been caught at that level is -- even fair to bring up.
Former coaches for some behavior that has exhibit itself in the NFL.
I think gets totally unfair I know Urban Meyer very well and I promise you he has great moral values he would not.
Under any circumstance compromised.
The the integrity of the universe you're the football team by overlook and play.
Is once again now it's somebody else's fault not aired our lead this -- is somebody else's fault I think it's a football coach on -- college level you have an obligation to make sure that dead individual received an education on how to make a living.

Some of the coaches who are in the NCAA ranks today or be your advice to them to keep their guys in line.

The one thing it should be emphasized at home and reinforced at the school is respect for authority.
Respectful a lot of respect for teachers respect for elders -- chatter and you have to make people make good choices and you say this.
If you make bad choices you're gonna have to live with the consequences -- how to make good choices for -- simple rules do the right thing.
