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.

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

Gee and OSU are freaking geniuses.  They break rule after rule, have a President and an Athletic Director who are total clowns and have zero credibilty, and then have the cahones to tell reputable coaches who object to their cheating wimps and tell them to get a life, thus shifting all attention away from them.

I have a lot of respect for OSU as an academic institution.  I cannot believe that responsibile alumni who understand how much these clowns are destroying the reputation of what should be a proud academic institution allow Gee and Smith to continue to be employed there.

This is EXACTLY why I wish nothing but the worst for Ohio State. I'd love to smash Gordon Gee's teeth out of his mouth.

You just watch. Gordon Gee and Urban Meyer are slicker and dirtier than scum on the bottom of the ocean. They will do any and everything to put their university at the top of the football world-even it means cheating "stretching the rules." They will eventually bring Ohio State back under the microscope with their questionable practices. It's just a matter of time. You just watch.

I just want to see Bielema catch this old dust-farting, outliving-his-usefulness, head-in-the-sand, better-off-dead piece of shit and bitch-slap him all over the room....along with his crooked-ass, lying AD.

Post of the day!!!!

Your a clown.  Ok your conference has a National Champion, many of them in the last decade.  You win.  Now where your an idiot.  The Big Ten grade point average if I looked real hard, probably triples that of the SEC.  Thankfully the SEC gives these kids a scholarship for their talents, or I am scared for what else they might be up to.  Look at any NFL roster or CEO or upstanding Memeber Of Society and you might find the Big Ten and its "crappy" areas might actually outshine your BCS Championships for 3 teams.  But I would not expect any more from an undereducated, Cheetos eating Saban lover that forgot to brush his teeth today.

Gee  the NCAA investigation into Tressel and the Buckeye football program that  as a "yearlong colonoscopy."
President Gee has all the arrogance that is expected in most universities to be covered over and diplomatically suggested instead of blatantly blabbered. But here is the essential difference between a colonoscopy and what Ohio State has endured. In a colonoscopy the surgeon removes the cancerous and other polyps and leaves the colon more healthy that when it began. Ohio State has retained Gee and AD Smith who were both instrumental to the cancer there. So what comes out of Gordon Gee's mouth might be better flushed as coming out of that still-diseased colon.
