Ohio State investigation: No cheating by athletes

An academic investigation of athletes at Ohio State University has turned up no evidence of academic misconduct by athletes.

A committee has been looking into allegations of preferential treatment of athletes and whether they received inappropriate help from tutors.

That followed a report in The New York Times over the summer that suspended running back Maurice Clarett passed two classes last fall by taking oral exams.

The committee looking into the allegations says it couldn't disclose most of the information it collected about athletes or classes because of student privacy laws.
