Vote: Maurice Clarett Talks

Clarett In the latest edition of ESPN The Magazine, former Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett levels some severe allegations against his former school, including cash payments, academic fraud and the free use of cars, arranged by head coach Jim Tressel. The alleged NCAA violations took place during Ohio State's 2002 national title season.

Buckeyes Athletic Director Andy Geiger has responded to the allegations by saying "We dealt with this guy [Clarett] for 18 months. I just hope you've checked into the background and history of who you're dealing with.''
