The rivalry between Michigan and Ohio State is all-encompassing. Once someone chooses a side, they must defend their decision for years to come. Former Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett knows this first-hand.
Clarett, whose football career had more twists and turns than most movies, was getting plenty of heat Saturday as the Buckeyes played the Wolverines. Michigan fans main focus was Clarett’s arrest for carrying a concealed weapon after a police chase.
However Clarett was clearly not letting his rivals get to him.

The Michigan taunts seem to be having as much luck at annoying Clarett as the Michigan defense has had against the Ohio State running game.
Since his turbulent career and arrest, Clarett has taken on a role as a public speaker. During his freshman year, the star running back helped Ohio State win the National Championship during the 2002-03 season.
