Ohio St.'s Gee to Bielema: 'Get a life'

From calling mid-majors the "Little Sisters of the Poor" to asking Jim Tressel not to fire himOhio State president Gordon Gee has not exactly been one to keep his mouth out of the headlines over the past 12 months. And he may not be for the next 12 months, either, judging by this interview with OSU student newspaper The Lanternin which he tells Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema to "get a life."

Bielema infamously accused new Buckeye head coach Urban Meyer of using "illegal" recruiting "tactics" and asked Badger athletic director Barry Alvarez to voice his complaints to Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany on his behalf. Gee emphatically stood up for Meyer in the Lantern interview, calling him the "finest in the country" and "the greatest affirmation of the quality of this institution."

When asked directly about Bielema's comments, Gee was every bit as emphatic.

"We hired the best coach and we went out and got the best kids so get a life," Gee said.

Ah, Signing Day: that magical time of the college football calendar that can lead the president of the third-largest university in the country to publicly call out a coach within his own conference using an insult from a 36-year-old Saturday Night Live sketch.

Gee also referred to the NCAA investigation into Tressel and the Buckeye football program that resulted in its 2012 bowl ban as a "yearlong colonoscopy."

We now fervently await Gee's next pledge to cease discussing matters related to football.

No wonder they're on probation. From your President? That's embarrasing.

We hate liars, cheaters, and arrogant drop kicks like you, GEE.  You are lucky you have a board of trustees without cahones who should have tossed you out and let you join Preacher Jim at Akron because you are both big ZIPs

I can't believe the vociferous alums of that university have allowed this assclown to remain in office.  At least he continues to exemplify Ohio State's commitment to narcissitic arrogance of the highest order.  The Ohio Cheat University indeed.

If Urban Meyer is your "greatest affirmation of quality", you've either been the AD of an SEC school or on Urban's payroll in the past!  I'd have believed this comment when they hired Tressel.  Meyer?  Really?  It does look from that picture of Gee he suffers from dementia or something..."my fingers used to interlock, and these suspenders are still hip!  Mr. Rogers still wears them"

Gordon Gee left Ohio State in the late 80's so he could puruse a better opportunity in the Ivy League than at Vanderbilt.  Gordon is not scarlett and grey so just ignore the bow tie.  He never has been intelligent when it comes to football and should stick to fund raising, personally looking forward to the day when Gordo is no longer associated with OSU.

If Urban Meyer represents "the greatest affirmation of the quality of the institution known as Ohio State" he must be crooked.
