Twitter Ohio State President Gordon Gee has never been shy to say what he really thinks. This time around, he insulted three schools at once. According to the Associated Press, Gee went after Notre Dame, Louisville and Kentucky during a meeting with the university committee in December. His comments included that Notre Dame didn’t belong in the Big Ten because “they’re not good partners” and that the Notre Dame priests are “holy on Sunday and ‘holy hell’ the rest of the week.” He also criticized the academics of the SEC and (randomly) Louisville. The AP also states that Gee claimed that the Big Ten presidents “would never agree to admit Louisville or Kentucky.” The most damning quote comes in reference to the SEC. For reference, Gee was responding to criticism that the Big Ten (think numbers here) now has 14 teams. “You tell the SEC when they can learn to read and write, then they can figure out what we’re doing.” He also apologized in a a statement to the AP: “The comments I made were just plain wrong, and in no way do they reflect what the university stands for,” he said. “They were a poor attempt at humor and entirely inappropriate.” Gee has gotten himself in trouble before, going after TCU and Boise State in regards to the BCS with his “little sisters of the poor” comments.
