More wit and wisdom from E. Gordon Gee

Very nice catch from Gregg Doyel:

“I have zero tolerance for those who do not live by the rules of the university or by the rules of the organizing body,” Gee said in an interview Friday. “It’s very important for us to set a very high standard for ourselves.”

That was so 2007.

    Between Doyel and Ray Ratto, CBS Sports has the worldly curmudgeon act down pat.

    He’s learning to become more tolerant. Gee has grown as a human being. lol

    That was before he learned that the football coach had hiring/firing power over the University President.

    After his time at Vandy, where he nearly eviscerated the football program, such as it was, it is interesting to see how Gee is re-interpreting his philosophy about athletics.

  5. Yeah, I’m done defending Tressel. He should have resigned, and if he hadn’t the university should have suspended him for the 2011 season, and they could have easily fired him.

    • The context of Gee’s remarks in that article is that he’s talking about player misconduct. So, you know, obviously coaching misconduct is much more tolerable.

    Gordo said Ohio State won’t have a bigger fan for players’ on-field performance. But, he added, “I’m going to be here to support you to make sure that what we do off the field is consistent with the philosophy and values of the university.”

    Mission Accomplished!

    by Zero Tolerance I believe he means “There will be Zero involvement in this from the University”.
