    Younstown Boys 30 for 30

    Did anyone watch this? I thought it was awesome. I was never a Clarett fan but my opinion he was screwed by the OSU AD. These 30 for 30's never cease to amaze me with how good they are.

    How did OSU's ad screw him over. Pretty much had trouble staying out of trouble the entire time he was there and eventually ended up committing fraud and accepting impermissible benefits.

    Still can't believe they beat that Miami team. I know the PI call has been a firestorm of opinion but OSU led most of the game and outplayed Miami.

    I watched the show and thought it was ok. Clarett's life was definitely intriguing in those first few years after he left Columbus.

    Did you watch the show?

    Clarett never got into any trouble while at OSU. He had the impermissable benefits thing but I am not convinced what he did is a big deal. His car broke down, Tressel sent him to a car dealer to get a loaner, the loaner had a window broken out the 2nd day he had it, Clarett called to report it to the cops and that triggered the impermissable benefits investigation because he was driving a nice car. Also, he was investigated for a cell phone that was given to him by a family friend who was around a majority of his life so he could keep in touch with his mother and NCAA said that was impermissable. The AD and the good ole boys OSU alumni didn't like the negative light and pretty much put sanctions on him that were not realistic for him to achieve.

    OSU's Geiger comes off looking like an ******* in this show.

    He didn't get into criminal trouble until he left OSU.

    I am with you, my Canes did nothing in that game. Johnson was a non-factor when he should have dominated.

    You got that right. And I agree, tremendous episode. They are always very good.

    Re: Younstown Boys 30 for 30

    One of my buddys played with Clarett after he got into all the trouble. They were in the same position group so they spent a ton of time together. We asked him all about how crazy he was and all this and my buddy said he is a great, nice, polite guy that would do anything for anyone.

    Re: Younstown Boys 30 for 30

    I'm not saying it was inaccurate, but it came off as very one-sided. Mo and Jim were signing from the same songbook and they didn't present any significant dissenting opinions of the events. Perhaps it's because Mo and Jim's version is correct, but it does make me wonder what the other side of the story is (if there is one).

    Re: Younstown Boys 30 for 30

    Definitely changed my opinion of him...I always thought he was a thug...not anymore.

    He made some bad decisions and had a problem with alcohol but he definitely had opportunities taken away from him by the actions of the OSU AD...and I think that led to much of his problems.
