Ohio State University president Gordon Gee says football players are closely monitored for head and other injuries. This month, the National Football League for the first time acknowledged publicly the seriousness of concussions among professional players.

In a year-end look ahead with WOSU News, Gee said Wednesday that physicians have the final say regarding Ohio State players.

On the subject of a possible Big 12, Gee said he supports a careful study of the idea.

Gee is in southern California this week for Friday’s Rose Bowl between the Buckeyes and Oregon.
