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.

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.
