Clarett Arrested

Maurice Clarett's arrest is another piece in a sad saga. Long-time readers may know that I wrote extensively on the injustice of the NFL keeping Clarett out of the draft, and when he was finally allowed to compete for a professional job, he could not make a roster because he had by then spent two years away from the game.

None of this is to say that Clarett is a good guy; his disciplinary problems at Ohio State and now the allegation that he robbed people at gun point certainly indicate otherwise. But how many young men, without football in their lives, would follow a similar path?

Ironically, Ohio State won the Fiesta Bowl again last night, three years after they won the national championship in the same game with Clarett leading them to the title.
