    Well the Dispatch os poking around too.

    Traffic tickets provide list of people

    Associated Press
    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Former Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett borrowed cars from relatives, friends and at least one car dealership while attending the university.

    That's according to records surveyed by The Columbus Dispatch.

    The vehicles that Clarett traveled in at Ohio State have become more of an issue since Clarett charged earlier this month that Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel and his staff helped players get loaner cars and also arranged other improper benefits.

    Speeding tickets issued to Clarett during his 18 months as an Ohio State student indicate he borrowed cars from hometown friends and relatives. One of the tickets he received was for driving 98 miles per hour.

    Clarett said in April 2003 that a 2001 Monte Carlo he had taken for an overnight test drive was broken into and someone took more than $10,000 in clothing, CDs, cash and stereo equipment.

    That led to Clarett pleading guilty to failure to aid a law enforcement officer and an NCAA investigation that found that Clarett had an improper relationship with the car dealer who loaned him the Monte Carlo.

    It looks like ESPN is softening a bit. Maybe they are having trouble finding "real" corroboration and are starting to see the hole they've dug and are making an attempt to climb out..... maybe.
