Hey Everyone! Gordon Gee Is Talking!

Like clockwork, Ohio State president Gordon Gee has emerged to say things, which always goes perfectly according to plan. Here, he calls out a pair of national outlets for stories that he also apparently claims to not have read. I think?

"‘Sporting News,' ‘Sports Illustrated,' a lot of them I don't read. It's bad journalism. And, so, why buy them?"

The "bad journalism" in question was President E. Gordon Gee's assessment of "Sporting News"' April 9 article titled "From champs to chomped: How Urban Meyer broke Florida football," which reported on an "out-of-control" culture left behind by Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer when he departed the University of Florida's program in January 2011. The article also reported wide-spread drug use among his former players.

Gee also voiced concern about "Sports Illustrated," which published an investigative report on OSU football and former Buckeye coach Jim Tressel in May. Tressel was forced to resign from his post May 30.

Plenty more where that came from! It's Gordon Gee talking!
