Another Buckeye in Trouble

First Eugene Clifford for assault and now DT Doug Worthington charged with DUI.

When it rains, it usually pours

    It seems as if the Buckeyes were staying out of legal trouble for quite some time now, besides the Henton incident.  Just three weeks ago, Eugene Clifford was charged with assault after a fight in his hometown of Cincinnati.  On Saturday morning, police pulled Worthington over right in front of the ‘Shoe for speeding.  He was going 41mph in a 25 mph zone.  Worthington is a fourth-year junior, and is looking to build on a solid outing in 2007.  He started 12 games, had 24 tackles, a sack, and a pick.  The fact that he is not even old enough to drink adds to the problem. 

Good can come of this

    These athletes need to look at the consequences of their actions and realize that they have a great opportunity to play for the Buckeyes.  Sometimes bad decisions come without thinking, but this should serve as a wake-up call.  We are poised to make another run at the National Title game, and this behavior will be frowned upon by Tressel and fans alike.

Moving On

    It’s always no fun to report on bad news, but don’t shoot the messenger.  Worthington will be fine and deal with his punishment.  Hopefully the rest of the team looks at this as a serious offense, and threat to playing time and overall career.
