    Youngstown Boys 30 for 30

    Wow, that was an incredible story about Maurice Clarett. So sad what can happen when the "machine" of the media and football world wants to bring someone down.

    Such a promising young man and his sad descent into the underbelly. Didn't realize he was drafted by the Broncos at one time.

    Yes, him being drafted by the Broncos caused these boards to explode, if I remember correctly

    Very, very good 30 for 30 and quite sad, too.

    He did find redemption at the end. I do think part of his descent was feeling like Tressel betrayed him by not standing up for him during those bogus charges as he viewed him as a father. So glad they found each other again.

    Those 30 for 30 films are incredible and extremely well done.

    Very good story, I watched. I had to watch that's my team, it's good to see he got his life straightened out. He was a good college RB & helped the Buckeyes win their last National Championship.

    Gotta love Jim Brown calls it as it is.
