The Clarett story gets weirder and weirder

Maurice Clarett was a brillant college football player, especially for the size he was. But, after his brillant freshman season, he made many many mistakes, that derailed the chances of a professional career. Now while I do throw a small percentage of blame on the NCAA, because there rules are so arcane, especially for an organization that takes in money hand over fist and still claims to have the atheletes best interest at heart, most of the blame does fall on Clarett, just because he did not mix with the right kind of people from day one. Anytime I would have heard that Suge Knight is involved, I think I might have steered clear as opposed to gotten entangled with him and some of his "interesting" friends.
