MACOMB, IL – Jim Lenz's guest is the associate director of student athlete support services from the Ohio State University Vicki Melnick.
They talk about reforms made after the Maurice Clarett scandal at the university in 2003. That year the New York Times reported Clarett was allowed to take easier oral exams rather than written exams in one of his classes. Melnick says an investigation cleared the university but led to changes.
