2007 & 2008 Troubles

    The problems started when Eugene Clifford was suspended for last years National Championship game due to a violation of team rules. Then, on July 4th he was arrested in Cincinnati after apparently coming to blows with two staff members at a sports bar.

Moving On

    Eugene Clifford plans to look at other schools to play football. Louisville, Eastern Kentucky and Western Carolina have expressed interest in giving Clifford another shot at college athletics. When Clifford entered Ohio State he was the third rated player in all of Ohio high school football and number 25 in the nation. While at Ohio State, Clifford was a special-teamer who was in on a number of stops during last years run to the BCS title game.
