Ohio State's athletic director, Gene Smith, also serves as chairman of the NCAA tournament selection committee. He won't be participating in any more March Madness funsies from his "luxury bunker," however: Smith has been recalled to Columbus. We cannot imagine why. Ostensibly, he'll be participating in a Tuesday night press conference with Jim Tressel and the university president, but if the rhabdo case at Iowa has taught us anything, it's that 24 hours is much too rapid a response time to an unfavorable news story.
You tell us: Why is Gene Smith really heading back to Columbus?
