Ohio St. president, a Utah native, retiring over remarks
He insulted Catholics, the SEC during Big Ten meeting.
< Previous Page
The top goal of Big Ten presidents is to "make certain that we have institutions of like-minded academic integrity," Gee said. "So you won’t see us adding Louisville."
After a pause followed by laughter from the audience, Gee added that the Big Ten wouldn’t add the University of Kentucky, either.
When asked by a questioner how to respond to SEC fans who say the Big Ten can’t count because it now has 14 members, Gee said: "You tell the SEC when they can learn to read and write, then they can figure out what we’re doing."
