Default Clarett admits it was all fabricated?

OSU guys confirm this or not....

Sorry, I don't have a link at this moment, but it's being reported by some guys on a football message board that tv stations in Columbus are reporting Clarett has admitted what he said was all CRAP.

OSU never set him up with cars, money, etc. and that he's even called Coach tressell and A.D. Andy Geiger to apologize.

Unbelievable. What a complete ****ing tool. I never believed a word he said from the get-go.

He didn't have much substance behind his accusations, i.e. you aren't going to take a mentally insane personal seriously. I think most people took what he said with a grain of salt, as he's already proven he's a moron for blowing his career with OSU and now most likely chances in the pros.

As an OSU fan, it's sad for me to admit that I don't think this rumor of a recantation on Clarett's part is true.....Google News search returns nothing, and if Columbus TV stations were reporting it, it'd be on those stations websites by now, and Google News would find/cache it.

Could be a rumor started by Clarett himself, who hasn't been mentioned in the press since the Buckeyes stomped the Wolvies into the ground a couple weeks ago and was starting to feel ignored again.

A little more into this...............

On ESPN Radio today, Dan Patrick said that Clarett apperantly called Andy Geiger and offered to retract his comments about the university, IF Ohio State made public comments to improve Clarett's image.

So, not only is he blackmailing the school now, he's willing to take back everything he said for an image make over?!

What the hell is inside this kids head?

Purple(I'm not changing my moniker for you till FSU goes down in flames in the Gator Bowl, FLAMES!!! BABY! )

I think we'd all like to see a link at this point.

Dan Patrick, while a fine SportsCenter anchor, well... is it okay if I just say I don't think he's beyond makin' s*** up?

Okay, cool.

If it was a fabrication can't any one of several people connected with Ohio State sue Clarett for slander and defamation of character, as Marion Jones is now threatening to do to Victor Conte?

Do you know what outcome in this matter would be really funny? That would be if someone does sue Clarett and they win the case; then Clarett gets drafted by either the Cowboys or the Texans in April. Why is that funny? Because Texas is one of the few states that does not allow wage garnishment; then Clarett buys a house in Florida (where a person's residence cannot be seized to satisfy a judgment - see O.J. Simpson), and the plaintiffs won't ever collect a dime.

This would be an appropriately absurd end to a totally absurd story.
