It’s time for him to go. He should have been gone after the JT fiasco.

Right on Craig.

Should have been fired.

If President Gee had to go then Mark May needs to go….Let’s get back to reality and the Woody days…..when there was true honesty. President Gee will always be on Campus in with us all. You can’t replace him…..

Can’t believe this… President Gee will always be Ohio State. He was always there for the students, alum….all….Just like Woody….he will never go away….

This is tragic. He didn’t say anything that wasn’t true, nothing we all haven’t said in our lifetime. He was at a private luncheon making jokes about other conferences, just as they do about us. Everyone needs to stop throwing good people at Ohio State under the bus and ruining good people’s lives. Grow up America.

He speaketh the truth!…Gordon Gee that is! Ever play a team in the GCL? I think the coaches probably confess their game night language on Sundays!
