    Y! SPORTS

    This guy is a real idiot. Reminds me of Boren from OU in that he can't keep his mouth shut.

    Glad we have class that represents ISU.

    Re: Stupid sports comments from tOSU President

    I thought the jokes at Catholics / Notre Dame were not that inflammatory and really just a harmless joke....The comment about Louisville was below the belt.

    Stupid comments from this clown shouldn't surprise anyone. That being said big deal.

    I wonder what Gene Smith thinks of those Notre Dame comments since he graduated from there.

    I thought it was pretty fun. Lighten up Slive. We know the SEC is pretty good with coloring books.

    Lighten up guys...Gee has a sense of humor and isn't afraid to use it. He's also not afraid to tell you what he things. He leads one of the nations largest universities and athletics programs and didn't get there by accident. He is beloved by the students and fundraises better than most anyone.

    This was Gee being Gee. He's a great guy and I'm glad he was president at OSU while I earned my masters there.

    So if, instead of Catholics, these jokes were geared at African Americans or women or the LGBT community, would this still be okay?

    I don't know, seems a little different to me. I also have to say that it seems no one can take a decent joke anymore. Hell, I'm Catholic, I didn't find it offensive. The joke when I was in school, working the Friday Night Bingo for my "Charity" to the church, we always laughed that yeah, Bingo was on Friday night because it gave you a day to think about it, then confess on Sunday, that what you had done was gamble, and that was wrong. So, if you won, you gave it back to the church that day. Then, it gave you four days to forget your sins and gamble again on Friday.

    It just goes to show, if you care what people think, don't say anything.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Gee was a Catholic himself. The Louisville comment would probably be below the belt but considering they're reigning NCAA champs and ended up in a decent conference, they can take it.

    This should really help them recruit Catholic students.

    Besides the economic advantages of their current NBC deal, one of several reasons I was always convinced ND would NEVER join the Big Ten. Ohio State and Michigan have nearly a century of these kinds of bigoted comments and efforts to blackball ND on scheduling by a Michigan coach and subsequent AD led Rockne to start playing games on the west coast.

    I dont see what is so wrong about calling Louisville and Kentucky out for their academics. It is what it is.

    Getting hammered on Dan Patrick show. Multiple references to Gee being a mormon, hiring a SEC coach, being a former president at a SEC school.
