Former Notre Dame linebacker Prince Shembo tried to clear his name over the weekend, but did he come off worse for his comments?

At the NFL Scouting Combine over the weekend, Shembo admitted he was the player investigated in 2010 for the sexual battery of Lizzy Seeburg, a St. Mary's College student who committed suicide 10 days after the alleged incident. He was never charged with a crime and was told by Notre Dame to not publicly discuss the incident while in school, though spoke with reporters about it in Indianapolis in an effort to clear his name.

"I'm innocent," Shembo told ESPN.com. "I didn't do anything. I'm, pretty much, I'm the one who ended it and pretty much told the girl that we should stop, that we shouldn't be doing this and that's what happened. So, I don't know."

Shembo's comments were met with skepticism from some, including the Chicago Tribune's David Haugh who penned a scathing column about the former Notre Dame linebacker. Monday's SportsTalk Live panel discusses Haugh's column and Shembo's comments in the video above -- what was his motivation for speaking out, and was he convincing?
