Hasn't he? Wouldn't the whole NCAA investigation into Clarett and public opinion on that mess-- guilty even after being "proven" innocent-- color tOSU fan perception? Or is it that whole same old, same old knee jerk reaction?
OSU should have never recruited Clarett. The guy was a nut case, as you can see with him being locked up. I'm not saying OSU is perfect. NO big program is perfect. I just thought it was absurd to group them with USC.
The NCAA found pretty much nothing, and I highly doubt they gave OSU a free pass on the matter.
