I have a feeling that eventually the Maurice Clarett truth will come out, and they will take away the National Championship.
Geiger should have been fired a long time before he "retired".
That was a great year for OSU hoops, and I lived in Columbus at the time.
The Maurice Clarett truth does keep coming out. Last time it appeared in court accused of armed robbery
As for Geiger, if he was doing such a bad job with compliance as AD, I am curious how they proceed through two thorough investigations of both the football and basketball program without findings of institutional problems and only three years probation after a coach and asst. coach admitted to making payments to players? Clarett was found to be a liar more than once and O'Brien has been ratted out for what he truly was. Lesson with O'Brien, do not fire him, or you will be sued, regardless of what caused the firing.
I think Geiger's legacy as doing what he could to run a clean program in a humongous athletic dept. with a fanatic, well-heeled financially booster base was secure with the limited slaps on the hands they received from two in-depth investigations of the athletic dept. There was a lot of smoke, but no fire. There are not too many programs that can say that which have been in Ohio State's position. They are normally found to have big problems once the investigating starts.
