because ESPN.com is hyping the story. But it is interesting that Maurice Clarett made a call to ESPN's Tom Friend to speak his mind just two hours before he Clarett was arrested on drunk driving and weapons charges. It certainly sounds like Clarett was going through some issues, perhaps substance abuse-related though perhaps it was more like depression or other mental issues. What a sad story. I wonder if he had stayed for a second year at Ohio State whether he would have faced the same problems. Perhaps by taking that one step, it put him on a path that led to this.

As always, Stay in School! William
