Ohio State President Gordon Gee Laments Scandal Headlines
The president of Ohio State University calls the attention generated by football team scandals a monumental shame for overshadowing the university’s accomplishments.
Gordon Gee says it’s an unjust proposition that the ingenuity of so many has been subordinated to the impropriety of a few.
Gee said Wednesday in a speech in downtown Columbus that the scandal has masked a remarkable year at the school.
The NCAA said last month that the Ohio State football team and new coach Urban Meyer will be banned from a bowl game after next season.
The university also forfeited its 2010 season, including a Sugar Bowl win.
The punishment followed a scandal in which players sold football memorabilia or traded them for tattoos.
