    What, no "sign Maurice Clarett" threads?

    I think he'd be a wonderful addition to our backfield.

    Bruce Arians is on the phone with him right now to see if Clarett can play FB...

    Wow, that's desperation right there. I'm actually a little surprised he's not a Brown.

    I think he has joined The OSU again for further studies. Hopefully he can get his life back on track again.

    He was gr8 during the OSU championship run. Such a waste of talent.

    He was buddies w/ LeBron and didn't see why his boy could go straight from HS to a multi-million $ pro contract but he couldn't simply because he played a different sport. I think it was the impetus behind some bad choices.

    I still believe he was the most talented RB to ever play at OSU. While he has become the object of ridicule and jokes I believe he is mentally ill. Personally, I don't find that funny. But, maybe that's just me.

    Pure talent but took a wrong turn on the "Decent to Good NFL Player" career trajectory.

    While he took a turn for the worse and made bad decisions, I will never forget him stripping the football to get possession back after a turnover on the same play to save the Buckeyes.

    As a freshman he was a better back than Eddie George as a senior. Our OL that year was horrific. When Clarett went down we couldn't run...at all. I can't count the times I said to myself how did he do that? There would be no hole...he would find a tiny crease and drag defenders for 5 yards. He was the whole package and then some.

    And yes, he made horrible decisions. He wasted a wonderful talent. With that said, there is no way he doesn't have sort of significant mental illness. The stuff I heard only comes from one of two things (mental illness, schizophrenia, bipolar) or from serious substance abuse. I suspect both led to his downfall.

    How do you know he is mentally ill? If extremely poor decision making equaled mental
    illness I'd be half crazy myself. Maybe even 3/4 crazy.

    x2 Shiek. I'll always remember that play as one of the all time greats. Pure grit and
    determination on Claretts part to save the day.
