Maurice Clarett went from national sensation as a running back at Ohio State to a cautionary tale in a prison cell before trying to resurrect his career in the United Football League. In a new book, Clarett's pro coach, Joe Moglia, reveals that Clarett had an "NFL lifestyle" at Ohio State; he took classes like fishing and, at one point, owned three cars including a new Cadillac and Lexus. "I got paid more in college than I do now," Clarett told teammates. Still trying to sort out his life, Clarett offered a sobering take on his fall. "Contrary to popular belief, prison does not give you street cred," he says to Moglia. "Anyone who glorifies it is an idiot." [Source]
