Maurice Clarett, who was suspended for the season by Ohio State for lying to police and investigators this past summer, says he wants to play for the Buckeyes again next season, even as he is suing the NFL for entry into the draft. I don't know what to think of this. As a fan, both of college football and Ohio State, I'd love to see Clarett back in scarlet and grey, as he's an immense talent. But I've really respected Jim Tressel for following through on running a clean program at OSU, and Clarett blew it last year.

It will be interesting to see what wins out at the university -- sticking to your guns on character, or the chance to have a stud in the backfield.
