Maurice Clarett: "Help me, I've fallen, and I can't shut up!"

After threatening to "take down" the Ohio State football program during the NCAA investigation caused by Clarett's inability to tell the truth, the nitwit has now come out with a series of charges against his former school.

The school's reaction? Ho hum.

You see, everything that Clarett is alledging was investigated as part of his original troubles. The school was cleared by the NCAA. He seems to think that this time he can hurt them by producing a corroborating witness, a former linebacker from the team. Only problem is, the linebacker is parrotting the same charges, and was thrown off the team for drug possesion. Sounds like an axe to grind to me.

In my view, Ohio State has been trying to do the right thing all through this, and Maurice Clarett refuses to grow up and act like a responsible human being. He reminds me of that player "Leon" in those beer commercials, where it's all about "me, me, me" and nothing is ever his own fault.

I guess the part of this that really burns me up is that he's talented, so someone in the NFL will draft him and pay him millions of dollars. And he'll keep right on being a dick.

What a loser. I am somewhat embarrassed that I ever rooted for him but being an OSU gras it seemed like the right thing at the time.

The difference, of course, being that Leon is really really funny.

As a die-hard OSU fan, it pained me to see him not playing for the bucks. He has (or by now, had) incredible talent. But his stupendous idiocy over the last couple years has left me with very little sympathy for him. He's been out too long, and his too many emotional issues for him ever to be a success in the NFL. And he created this situation all by himself. If he had just stuck it out and accepted whatever the NCAA handed down and played for the bucks, he might yet have had the NFL career he wanted so desperately.
