Mike Slive accepts Gordon Gee’s apology

Yesterday, Ohio State president Gordon Gee made some pretty offensive remarks regarding Kentucky and the SEC (I’d tell you about them, but I apparently can’t read). SEC Commissioner Mike Slive went before reporters yesterday and said that Gee called him about a week ago warning him about the disrespectful comments and apologized in advance. Big 10 commissioner Jim Delany also called him to apologize and make it clear that his conference has the utmost respect for the SEC.

It’s okay, Gordon. Those comments will live on in every SEC/Big 10 throwdown for years to come.

    Did he call UK in advance?

    Hard to imagine the President of a major University making those comments. It is a classical example of speaking without thinking. There was nothing funny about his comments. Maybe it is time for him to retire.

    Let’s be honest here, he only called because he knew he was caught, not because he said them.

    You are ignorant, ugly, smell bad and think your very existence is an insult to the human race… but I have the upmost respect for you.

    Gee is The A**hole (I know the missing letters) and I accept that.

    Seems to me that The Ohio State University has some ‘splainin’ to do. In this day-and-age, how did anybody this ignorant get to be a University President?

    American students have been sliding in the global rank for education for several years even though we outspend all other countries. The the of attitude, denigration, and arrogance expressed by this OSU president provides a glimpse into part of the reason for this decline.

    How very polite, expected, and in the end, meaningless. Dr. Gee has exposed his outlook on the SEC and the University of Louisville and mouthing the mandatory apology will not change how he thinks or feels. This is merely the most recent of a deep history of foolish statements.
    There comes a time, Dr. Gee when retirement is a viable option. Perhaps you should consider your options at this time.

    The Big Ten is like the kid no one cares about who just has to yell and scream to get attention. Ignore them like always.

    Gee once said that Jews are responsible for all of the wars in the world. That’s right, Gee is Mel Gibson’s father.

    Does anyone think Mike Slive gave half a rip about this? Was he pacing by the phone, muttering to himself “That SOB Gee better call and apologize”? How petty and insignificant this is. The Catholics might have an actual gripe, but who cares what the haters say? We will just keep doing our thing, and they can do theirs.

    Gordon Gee… What a nerd, and that coming from your loyal UK fan trapped in Columbus, OH. Maybe we can look into this further when the Big 10 gets on our level.

    Gee’s apology: “I’m really, really sorry you found out about those comments and how I really feel.”

    From the looks of Gee’s resume,he got promoted up and out several times. Looks like he is ready for another move. I hear Barnum and Bailey is looking for a new clown.He could start without further training.
