Gee apologizes to Little Sisters of the Poor

Remember the good old days when the only thing Ohio State had to worry about were comments that school president Gordon Gee made about TCU? Specifically, questioning TCU's claim to the BCS title game by saying that the school's schedule was weak and that Ohio State didn't waste time playing "the Little Sisters of the Poor."

Well, Gee caught a lot of flak for those comments already and has apologized, but what he didn't realize at the time is that there actually is a group of nuns called "The Little Sisters of the Poor."

It's a group based out of Toledo, Ohio, and as you can guess by the name, the nuns help out the poor and the elderly throughout the state of Ohio. I have no idea how their football team rates. Anyway, Gee was with the sisters Tuesday where he apologized for his remarks.

"I made the unfortunate comments about the fact that I compared some other football teams to the Little Sisters of the Poor," Gee said on Tuesday.

"He didn't know we were real," said Sister Cecilia Sartorius of the Little Sisters of the Poor.

The Toledo-based group is on a mission to care for the poor elderly across Ohio.

"I am delighted about the fact that Sister Cecilia and I have now developed a wonderful relationship," Gee said.  "I understand her work and value it deeply."

Gee said that he will visit the Little Sisters of the Poor on Aug. 17.

"We've got some great new friends who are helping us," Sartorius said.  "We won't work him too hard when he comes to the home, maybe just cleaning here and there."

No, sister, work him harder than that. I want Gee on his hands and knees scrubbing those floors. I want to see my reflection! Then, when he's done, take the ruler to his knuckles.

Why does he dress like Larry King's brother?

Evidently Gee never saw the Blues Brothers movie. Ohio State will have to "get the band back together" after they get out of the NCAA jailhouse and the pre$$ scrutiny dies down. Sad that this story makes the national sports news. But it is amusing.

tOSU should be more concerned about retribution from The Little Sisters of the Poor then the NCAA.  Never dis a nun, or bring shame to the order.  Not only can they evoke the heavenly powers, these nuns have a mean right cross. 

Decked and Raptured, is not a good way to end your day Gee.  

All the NCAA has is a infractions committee that takes two years to make a decision.    &n

apparently gee doesn't realize that ohio state plays in the big 10.  osu's schedule is cupcake every year
...this from the man whose Louisville Cardnals have four straight losing conference seasons in the "powerhouse" Big East...

Hmmm, I wonder if in his spare time he hangs out with Pee Wee Herman?



Even as an OSU fan, I had to laugh at this one.

Really, what are the odds that not only is there really a group called Little Sisters of The Poor who are doing great things by the way, but that they are also in the state of Ohio?  Talk about puttin' your foot in your mouth.

I think it's really interested that Gary Patterson is among a few names as a potential hire as the head coach for OSU...especially with this little history. I highly doubt Gary P. would seriously look at taking the job given the comments the president of OSU made.

I'm sorry but here is just one more case of what some of us refer to as an "educated idiot" that has run a very successful "businesss" until getting it in deeper, hotter water by opening his mouth & inserting his foot. And I can't/won't believe that he didn't know what the LSOTP were before he made the non-whimsical statement about TCU. THE osu is in need of something, someone besides this Orville Redenbacher look-alike spouting off any more & getting them into deeper trouble. GG needs to quit trying to be a comedian & just do his day job. If I was one of those nuns, I'd strongly suggest some kind of punishment for his habitual lying. And if I was in charge of scheduling any non-AQ/BCS teams, I'd boycott the Buckeyes until this old fool admitted that they're all D1 & all should get a shot at a true NC by initiating a playoff just like all other divisions have.
