Clarett goes to jail, Tom Friend scrambling to write article

In case you haven't heard, Maurice Clarett has pled guilty, negotiating his punishment down to 7 1/2 years in prison, 3 1/2 of which he is guaranteed to serve, after which there is a slight chance of him getting out with good behavior. Apparently Coach Tress wasn't able to do anything more for him.

On a slightly more serious note, thank God we're now at a point where it seems like we won't have to hear tons more stories about him doing stupid shit and having it inexplicably reflect back on our university. Every time the guy screwed something up or robbed somebody or killed a kitten, Tom Friend or some other jagoff from ESPN was there waiting to write about how it made the school look bad, despite the fact that he played in like 9 games for us and hasn't been associated with the program in over three years. At least now that he's behind bars, he can't do anything stupid to put normal citizens in danger, and have us deal with columns and articles about how it's Jim Tressel's fault that Maurice decided to punch a toddler or blow up a hospice center. Good riddance, and I hope it's the last we hear about him for a good long while...
