Nothing wrong here...
"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 at a time, including a brand-new Cadillac and Lexus. "I was living the NFL life in college," he says. "I got paid more in college than I do now in the UFL."
...this is exactly why I don't consider ohio state to be on the same level as us. Success without honor, especially in this context, is a disgrace to the game. They think they're better than us, yet they cut corners & flat out cheated in the dirtiest ways imaginable. Then they throw their players under the bus when in reality it's that f***ed up culture in Columbus. You really want to see people put sports ahead of academics & everything else? Go to Columbus. Yet they all think the program is clean. I hate those self righteous ohio state fans more than I hate Al Queda.
"On paper they have nothing to play for– no bowl games, rankings, or championships– yet they play like they have everything on the line."
I am sure this 100% true but Clarret has ZERO credibility and this is outside the statute of limitations I believe. Nothing will come of this. Also, I am pretty sure this is old news. Clarret spoke out in the summer of 2011 I believe.

Like Cardale, I guess Maurice didn't go there to play school either. Fishing in the middle of an urban Ohio area, gotta love that curriculum.

Extra benefits like this involves eligibility which makes it an exception to the statute of limitations.
While I agree nothing might come of it because of donkeyman Emmert, OSU is not in the clear b/c of the statute.
KILL IT OH MY GOD WHAT IS THAT THING??????? Sean!!!!! There is a ANTI-CHRIST picture on your board
PENN STATE FOREVER
wasn't the reason we got sanctions outside the statute of limitioins as well? i think it's apparent now the ncaa can do what ever they want after what they did to us.. they won't do anything bc not enough people are clamoring for more sanctions to be handed down.
We waived any legal statue of limitations arguments we had when we signed onto the consent decree.... we waived all arguments by signing that damn thing. The OSU stuff is old news and frankly so are our sanctions since there isn't much that can be done about them unless the NCAA reduces them voluntarily.
Same link was posted over on Bucknuts. Some poster actually said this...
"I for one cannot get over this Clarett thing. Damn it... He still had three more years of eligibility when this sh*t happened. I wanted him back!!!"
...sums up all you need to know about the O$U culture.
I dont think clarett is lying but i wonder how much he's getting paid to talk about this now
Just wait til Pryor needs a buck when he's broke and out of the league in about a year. He will sing to the heavens for some cash.
Meyer4Prez "This is wut happens when ur team site analyst are huge homers glad Bill K+Alex G keep it real instead of getting our hopes up."
He needs the money to help his mom.
Well considering he already sold all of his O$U gear & he's banned from stepping foot on their campus for a couple of years, I'd say he's SOL. That and he plays for Raiders.

The NCAA investigated Clarett completely in 2003. Nothing came of it. That is why this is a non-story.
The NCAA investigated Auburn for buying Cam Newton too and came up with nothing despite we all knew he was bought. The NCAA isn't a smart organization when it comes to finding a trail. When a player or in this case former player openly comes out and says stuff like this, you can bet he got money. Sure, you might think he has an axe to grind, but, in this case, I don't think so.
NCAA investigations rarely turn up anything. It's the reason why we got punished.
F the NCAA
F the BOT
I would counter that the NCAA is very smart in their investigations. They choose to enforce what they find, however. At least that's my opinion since SMU.
At that time clarett was hoping he could be reinstated...
Now, he has nothing to lose..

from knowing a person who is actually close with Terrelle, people would be surprised to what lengths he went to help his mother. He would drive back to Pittsburgh a few times each month to see her and help her.
yea he broke the rules, but in his instance he needed the cash to help his family.
The NCAA just has no legal ramifications to hold over people's heads. There is no perjury with the NCAA, you can lie directly to their face and nothing will happen. That's the reason things are so hard to prove.
"Playing here is the closest thing to heaven on earth..." - Brian Rolle
Or, you can do the chicken way of the former Miami student-athletes who accepted benefits and not say a single word, which makes the NCAA's job harder to nail the rule violators.
And so do a lot of other players.
One of the dumbest things I have ever heard. Understand your dissatisfaction with the fan base, but Al Queda really. Al Queda has killed 1000's of Americans while Buckeye fans have just pissed off 1000's

Yeah, forgive me if I don't feel bad. I know players who had tougher situations that did it the right way.
