We thought we might check in and see how our old friend Maurice Clarett is doing, now that he has fired his lawyers just two weeks before his trial. Well, he has some new lawyers, and they have exactly a fortnight to, you know, find out what the hell the case is about.

Meanwhile, in the not-really-a-league Eastern Indoor Football League, they're pressing ahead with promotions that Clarett will be the league's top attraction. The Mahoning Valley Hitmen Web site, with the slogan "Get Whacked Indoors" — Get Away From Me, Indoor Football! — is pimping Clarett's ecstatic quote about the league: "I don't have many other options." Oh, the current poll question: "Should the Hitmen play teams from other leagues?" Considering the league has three not-actually-real teams, we're gonna go with "yes."
