We'll be seeing you on November 30th next year Mr Woodson. Good luck, you're going to need it.
It says more about the type of person who flames a troubled kid years after the fact.. than it does about Mo C or Tressel or his university who didn't turn their back.
Guess what.. This story has a happy ending.
The moral to the story, the reason for the book, the true story written by Clarett is that he did the deeds. Takes full responsibility. It was him who made the decisions, chose his path, accepts responsibility, and paid the consequences.
After being kicked off the team, squandered his athletic talent, his intellect, his full ride, he chose a path that led him to prison.
It is bad karma to flame someone who made this much positive progress with their life and the lives of others. Might want to rethink this troll.

You know who he is?
Well said. But, what you ask would be taking the high road. Do all Buckeyes - or at least most, give the same consideration for other player issues outside your program?
Good for Maurice, but what it all boils down to is. tOSU SHOULD have known what was going on, after all "high profile players demand high profile compliance" I've read your boards, and you people are very good at throwing stones out of that glass house of yours.

um , not sure why i would be butt hurt..
just pointing out facts!
Don't be a internet tough guy it doesn't suit you well!
If I am not mistaken here, I don't see anyone "flaming" MC .. Just Ohio in a whole! And how you guys cheated for pretty much the entire 10 years of Tress.
Fact of the matter is MC sounds like he will be fine in life. Good for him!
You mad, bro? Has 26-21 and 10 of the last 12 given you bees in your little bonnet?
Is everyone in Ohio a dumb ass or just the fans?
Who's mad? I'm not mad at all!
We are talking about a decade of cheating from Ohio! Why should I be mad?
The fact that you idiots keep posting in our boards about this 26-21 record? Not even mad about that. Just shows how stupid you guys can be.
Have a merry Christmas !
sorry bro, you gots to get to the game first - then you gots to win it 7 times in a row to "keep up".
you can't just cheat, you have to cheat and win. :)
Lol. You have one circumstance of Jim Tressel violating rules and suddenly it equals Ohio State cheating for a decade. You are a sore loser. Guess what Sparky. At the end of the day, Beanie Wells is better than Mike Hart. Troy Smith is better than Chad Henne. Teddy Ginn Jr. is better than Mario Manningham. Braxton Miller is better than Denard Robinson. Hyde is better than Touissant. Tressel is better than Carr. Meyer is better than Hoke. In every possible way, in every world or dimension, reality or alternate, our team is and will continue to be better than yours. Our players are better. Our coaches are better. It's a new world son. Reality is such that your team is in a state with mediocre football talent and it has to compete with MSU for that talent. Your team continues to be considered to be "elite" because of its history. But mark my words: your team is fighting a constant uphill battle when it comes to competing with mine. Our team is in a football powerhouse state, and we take that talent at will. We are also more relevant as it pertains to recent history. 7 of our last 8 seasons have come with ten wins or more. We've been to the most BCS bowls of any team and have the most BCS wins. Recruits hear the names Ohio State and Urban Meyer and they think "BIG TIME." Good luck trying to measure up to that. My guess is your pissy little "you cheated" taunt comes from the desperation of knowing that you have and will continue to play second fiddle to THE Ohio State University. Your glory days are over. Welcome to the new world, son.

So just to be clear, you are under the impression the improper benefits happened 1 time and 1 time only??
This has been one of the more entertaining threads on this board. I would like to thank everyone who participated in it. I would also like to thank you for shattering the myth that the Big 10 is squeaky clean. Of course, I never bought into the myth to begin with
yea, all that integrity and academia of the BIG is just a BIG PILE OF so all you BIG fans should just lay off that crap for let's say, until you actually win the championship two times in a row. then we'll over look it here in the lowly cheating and stupid SEC.
Not sure it's fair to lump in the entire conference based on OSU's way of thinking
I'm fairly certain Mark Dantonio was in charge of handing out the envelopes.
Should have known? You do realize Mo C never suited up for a second year. Dismissed after year one is EVIDENCE that they looked the issue head on and acted in a timely manner.
From a program that just got off of probation I find this post hilarious.
What even funnier us that even with cheating it was still one of the worst five year spans in your programs tired old history.
Self reported and suspended from the team. Old news that was already reported to the NCAA. Good try though.
yessir, those tattoos really gave us the edge on the field. go kick rocks troll.
Didn't SI report that the whole thing went as far back as 2002 and involved at least 20 players?
Sporting news did a hatchet piece on Tressel saying he rigged a raffle 20 years ago.
And how many of those things were confirmed to be facts as opposed to reported hearsay? Yeah, that's what I thought.
That's the problem with you OSU fans.. why not just embrace the cheating? SEC fans do.. they know they cheat, but do they care? No because they win and that's fine.
It's pure comedy you guys try to defend JT and OSU and assume the isolated incidents when everyone knows it's complete bs
The problem with buckeye fans is that the NCAA conducted a full investigation and found the SI article to be full of shit? Gotcha, that makes sense completely.
How about potentially risking a kids life in order to try to win a football game? Seems a tad bit more serious than some free tattoos or players selling what belongs to them. GTFO troll.
