Time to move on from steroids

Yesterday’s acquittal of Roger Clemens on perjury charges will hopefully bring the end to the government’s “quest to find truth” in the steroids controversy.

I don’t agree with taking steroids, but the government should not be involved in this battle.

Unfortunately, Clemens true judgement will lie down the road could be with his health if he did indeed take steroids.

OHIO STATE CLEARED – On the subject of the courts staying out of sports, I’m glad to see that the Ohio Supreme Court recently ruled against ESPN in their suit against Ohio State over records regarding “TatGate.”

Let it go. It’s over.

I do like how Ohio State put provisions in new coach Urban Meyer’s contract on reporting NCAA violations.

It may be too late, but it’s good that the school has installed checks.

REASON FOR CONCERN? – Yesterday’s report that Ohio State standout Jared Sullinger was red-flagged by doctors before the NBA Draft could end up benefiting the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Sullinger was projected as a lottery pick, but may fall to No. 24 (the Cavaliers second first-round selection) after the report.

If he falls that far, the Cavaliers should pounce.

They can use inside scoring and the payoff outweighs the risk late in the first round.

BOBCAT FAIL – I’m stunned that the Charlotte Bobcats chose a life-time assistant, Mike Dunlap, as its new head coach.

For as great as Michael Jordan was as a player, it’s embarrassing to figure out why he can’t evaluate talent better.
