    For all the tuition-whiners -- not necessarily here on BP, but they're out there :nerd:

    Favorite Gee quote from yesterday: "For most people it’s a football game, but for me it’s my budget running up and down the field.”

    lol

    President Gee strikes again!

    Gee rips ND, Catholics, and the SEC


    OSU's remedial plan for him? Probably a slap on the wrist and to write "I will not say stupid things 100x's on the whiteboard"

    I wonder why he left off the point that his comments were accurate none the less.

    I just view it as when you're at the top and a public official, people take shots at you. Add to that, people know that most things Ohio State get views, clicks, reads, etc.

    I'm sure other AD's or schools presidents make similar remarks. But most people don't know who the school president is at Kentucky, Harvard or other schools, in addition to not caring about what they say (because they're not as high-profile and don't generate reaction).

    Disagree completely. You don't take shots at a large group of people who some probably pay for your salary. Someone in his standing/title, you don't say that kind of stuff. CEO, Presidents, etc of companies don't come out and say this kind of garbage

    Trump, Cuban, Sepp Blatter, David Stern, Jerry Jones, and George Steinbrenner.

    People who all generate reaction, as does Gee. Notice information from a public records request is on the front page of every single sports site right now.

    Okay I'll give you those, but they make general stupid comments. Do they attack a large religious group?

    tsteele316 Mr. Such and Such

    nobody from the SEC pays his salary and his comments about ND were spot on. this is more people looking for something to whine about than anything that might actually be offensive.
     
  14. BuckBackHome

    BuckBackHome Wolverine is largest member of weasel family


    And every one of those guys is a private-business owner, not a publicly paid official at one of the largest public universities in the world.

    Gee's comments the last few years have been progressively getting more inappropriate. As an alum, he is starting to embarrass me.

    Muck Go black or go home.

    Time to move this to the Pussification of America thread.

    The Priests running Notre Dame are NOT good partners and they'd be the first to tell you that. The no doubt TIC 'damn Catholics' was probably poorly worded but it wasn't an attack on the Catholic Church.

    How about we actually know what his exact comments were regarding the SEC & Louisville (and in context) before we start the hands to foreheads woe is me routines?

    And yes public officials say far worse all the time, it just rarely gets reported unless a specific group or report has an ax to grind.
