Former Ohio State tailback Maurice Clarett says it feels good to be cheered for what he does on a football field after years away from the game he loves.

Clarett, a month into a stint with the Omaha Nighthawks of the United Football League, said Wednesday that it has taken him time to get back into playing shape after not playing competitively since he led Ohio State to the 2002 national championship. He was suspended by the NCAA for taking improper inducements, failed to make it in the NFL, then spent 3 1/2 years in prison for having a hidden gun and holding up two people outside a Columbus bar in 2006.

In the Nighhawks' two games -- both wins -- Clarett has seen only limited action while playing behind former NFL star Ahman Green.
