The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has hired former Ohio State athletic director Andy Geiger.
The school says Geiger will begin work immediately. In a statement, Geiger said the opportunity was meaningful because he'll be working ''just a few blocks from where my father was born and raised.''
Geiger was the athletic director at Ohio State from 1994 to 2005.
Geiger oversaw several major construction projects at Ohio State, including the construction of the Jerome Schottenstein Center arena and a significant renovation of Ohio Stadium. But the school also weathered high-profile scandals during Geiger's term, including the dismissal of running back Maurice Clarett amid allegations of improper benefits and the firing of basketball coach Jim O'Brien after he admitted giving money to a recruit.

AROUND THE WEB
Former Ohio State bench warmer turned writer Mark Titus did a lengthy interview with Greg Oden, his former Buckeyes teammate. The two have known each other since playing AAU ball together in 2001, and it’s apparent in the write-up that Oden is a shy introvert who values his privacy. This was a rare interview where Oden opened up and revealed many details about his life.
With a multitude of question marks and instability in its athletic programs, many felt the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee had to make a statement with its athletic director hire.
It did just that.
UW-Milwaukee announced Thursday that former Ohio State University athletic director Andy Geiger is the university's choice to lead the school's athletic department.
Greg Oden. The name brings up many emotions among basketball fans. For Ohio State fans (and many Cavaliers fans, like me), fond memories of his one (half) year in Columbus. And a desire to see him dominate in the Association. For some columnists, it's a history-ignoring habit of suggesting that the Blazers were idiots for passing on Kevin Durant, when in fact same columnists...
The story of Alex Anzalone’s decommitment from Ohio State is a weird one. That sentence isn’t of the highest literary quality, but there’s really no better way to say it. The entire situation is odd and gives off a feeling of, well, let’s just move on from the reasons behind Anzalone’s decommitment. You’ve surely read about them by now and that’ll do. The latest chapter...
Seriously dude, we are trying to move on.
Ohio State fans everywhere, including myself, are trying our best to forget Terrelle Pryor. He never played for Ohio State. Those 3 years just did not exist. And while I admit that we enabled this douche, the way it all ended just proved that he was never a true Buckeye.
One year later, with Urban Meyer totally revitalizing a disappointing...
Sports Illustrated’s Jim Trotter has a piece out today on Terelle Pryor. Among many things discussed was the circumstances that led to Pryor’s suspension at OSU and the season he had last year in Oakland sitting on the bench.
“It was humbling,” he said. “A mistake I made when I was a freshman by selling my pants for $3,000 just took away everything from me. I was just...
Much has been made about Ohio State's offensive changes this spring, but what about the Buckeye defense? Many familiar faces return, but that does not mean everything will be the same this fall. Take a look at what we saw last month.
On Friday, THE Ohio State University sent out a letter via it’s school paper The Lantern warning athletes about a convicted repeat child sex offender, and to watch who they associate with in social media.
Since then, the pervert in question Charles Eric Waugh, has violated his probation (which could very likely lead to jail this time) and the #4 rated recruit in Pennsylvania de...
Ohio State handed out offers to two of the premier 2014 prospects in Florida on Thursday.
Was Terrelle Pryor a Victim?
All has been quiet on the Ohio State front, which is good news for Buckeye fans. With that said a ghost from 2011 began to speak casting a great shadow over our previous assumptions. Former quarterback Terrelle Pryor who’s career prematurely ended after an NCAA investigation told his side of the story. Sports Illustrated was able to get the current...
