    Great read about Maurice Clarrett

    Funny part is when he said he got paid more to play college football than he does now playing for a low level pro team.

    Re: Great read about Maurice Clarrett

    Wow...very interesting to read. Glad to hear he's getting his life back in order. Sad thing is, he was caught taking impermissible benefits which derailed his life, but how many others never got caught...

    Thanks for sharing. I liked this quote from the article:

    "Contrary to popular belief, prison does not give you street cred. Anyone who glorifies it is an idiot," he says. "It only lets your dumb *** know that you got caught doing something wrong."

    I've wondered what happened to him a few times

    This quote should be plastered across every school in America.

    Yeah the words he uses makes me think he really learned his lesson. Sometimes people get out and say things and you know they are not true.

    Re: Great read about Maurice Clarrett

    Wow - I'm cynical enough to believe this happens at many and most D1 Schools, for the top athletes, including my Alma Mater.......

    But off the field, he was living a completely different life. "I took golf, fishing, and softball as classes," Clarett says. "Away from class, anything you can think of I did in my 13 months at Ohio State." Drugs and women were two of the things. Cars were another—he owned three of them

    Yikes, I never knew he was on his way to kill somebody when he got pulled over. I remember at the time his lawyer claiming he was paranoid and felt he needed that arsenal for defense purposes. Glad the officer was in the right spot at the right time.
