Ohio St.-National Cheats?

AP Headline:

Some Excerpts:Ohio State to investigate report that Clarett received help to pass class

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio State president Karen Holbrook said Sunday the athletic department will investigate a report that star Maurice Clarett received assistance to pass a class before the Fiesta Bowl.

The New York Times reported for Sunday's editions that the running back passed African-American and African Studies 101 by taking two oral exams.

Paulette Pierce, an associate professor, told the newspaper she worked directly with Clarett and administered the exams after he walked out of the course's midterm exam during the fall semester.

It wasn't clear whether Clarett, a freshman on the Buckeyes' national championship team, received special consideration, or whether university or NCAA rules were broken.

Ohio State has had problems with academics in the past.

In 2000, a year before coach Jim Tressel took over for John Cooper, wide receiver Reggie Germany was declared ineligible for the Outback Bowl after recording a 0.0 GPA for the fall quarter.

So we gotta wonder - is this a tainted Championship for the Buckeyes?

OSU holds its athletes to a particularly high degree...especially with classes like Basket-weaving, Underwater Basket-weaving, Music Analysis 010 - "What kind of Cross Buns?", Sleep Studies, and the most important of all...Recess! ;-D

This is nothing different then any Division 1 school in the country. Now people are actually being caught because of what has happened in Alabama and Georgia. Student athletes get paid to play, and other students take thier tests for them. We should all get used to this. There is no tainted championship, because if the media digs down deep enough, everyone has cheated.
