Maurice Clarett only spent one season at Ohio State as a member of their football team, but he sure did make it count. The former Buckeye running back is said to be living a life of luxury during his brief stint at OSU. This is according to Monte Burke in his book 4th & Goal: One Man’s Quest to Recapture His Dream.

Deadspin published an excerpt of the book which further details Clarett’s college life:

“Away from class, anything you can think of I did in my 13 months at Ohio State.” Drugs and women were two of the things. Cars were another—he owned three of them at a time, including a brand-new Cadillac and Lexus. “I was living the NFL life in college,” he says. “I got paid more in college than I do now in the UFL.”

Wait, what?

A dark cloud already hangs over the program because of a separate incident involving a tattoo scandal. Ohio State was placed on probation for three years and banned from bowl contention for the 2012 season in punishment for that situation. It has wound up costing the Buckeyes a chance to play for the national title this season after rolling through the regular season undefeated.

Will there be any fallout from Clarett’s retrospective claim?
