Maurice Clarett Tweets On Joe Paterno

Former Ohio State Buckeyes running back Maurice Clarett knows what a college football scandal feels like. Clarett was part of a couple during his one season in Columbus which included an unsuccessful attempt at suing the NFL and his removal from the football team.

Clarett is now a motivational speaker, using his troubled past to help kids today.  He enjoys speaking his mind, especially on Twitter.  He, like many other athletes past and present, have been vocal in their disgust with Penn State and Joe Paterno, in particular.   In fact, Clarett mentions his past troubles.

"They (immediately) kicked me out of all athletic facilities for driving some cars. He protected a molester and he stays put.."

What Clarett is referring to is Joe Paterno, who was told about an incident involving Jerry Sandusky in 2002 and did nothing but pass the information up the chain of command within the athletic department at Penn State.  While not legally wrong, many are thinking a man of Paterno's status should have done more.

Like I wrote yesterday, what happened at Penn State is light years worse than anything that has happened at Ohio State yet players like Clarett and Terrelle Pryor are made examples of while Joe Paterno skates by.  Hypocrisy knows no bounds.
