Maurice Clarett on life at Ohio State back in the day, in a book excerpt via Deadspin:

He was a hard worker in practice and in games. But off the field, he was living a completely different life. “I took golf, fishing, and softball as classes,” Clarett says. “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.”

That’s all well and good. But don’t even think about trading a uniform for a tattoo. The NCAA takes that crap seriously.
