    That's why I think the expanded practice squad might be a good solution. Give them time to adjust and come along at a more natural pace instead of just throwing them out there with the 1's and 2's to get blown up.

    Like I said before, by the time he was drafted he had to sit out a year ( no year of football ) no pay, back to the hood.

    He was a alcoholic before he was drafted. So yes same guy. Big difference coming right out of HS fresh.

    He would of produced in the NFL as a 18 year old. In HS he was a man-child. OSU did him dirty

    if you say so

    always struck me as the guy that would be the dumbest dude in the room no matter where he was.


    if he had any talent he would NOT have wound up in prison. NFL dont give much a crap about anything except Ws

    Maurice Clarett is a smart man and a good dude. People hit lows in their lives, who am I to judge.

    Any talent?? He was one of the best if not the best players in the nation in HS. Then goes to OSU and basically runs them to a National Championship as a true freshman while playing injured. He had the talent.

    Those were some fun times to be in the 330 area. Fridays night you would go watch Maurice do his thing, then go up to Akron and watch LBJ do his thing.

    Actually Maurice was more popular then LBJ in HS. Funny how things switch up on you.
