Had left Ohio State this summer over revealed remarks

December 7, 2013

I predicted this as a JOKE a couple of weeks ago.

Well his off color humor will fit right in with a hillbilly part school!

Maybe he can invite the students over for a Saturday night cross-burning . . . .

There's nothing in this about why Mr. Gee left OSU but there is a big banner ad for WVU above it. Advertisers can do no wrong in this nonnewspaper.

I have ongoing concerns about outdated emergency stadium evacuation protocol in the United States. In 2012, I sent correspondence regarding this matter to every NCAA Division I President and Chancellor. Of the 119, Gordon Gee was the ONLY one to respond in writing on all 3 separate occasions.

Consider me a fan.

dyingov - you should do a search on the issue of "artificially generated stampedes." It's barely more interesting than the Festival of Lights.

artificial stampedes! So what exactly did gee tell you his plan was? You ever been to a Buckeye football game? What is the plan if 100,000 drunk football fans decide to create an artificial stampede?

Most peeps would either join in or get stepped on......

I'm sure you can remove at least one ZERO from his $1,900,000 salary at OSU now that he is back in Smallville.

At first I thought I had misread the headline. Then I though it might be a misprint. Finally I decided it had to be a sick joke. Boy, was I wrong!

This boneheaded move demonstrates perfectly why WVU will forever be irrelevant nationally. Why oh why would they *re-hire* a person proven to engage mouth before starting brain.

All we can do now is sit back, put our feet up and wait for the inevitable howlers and malapropisms to begin tumbling out of his mouth.

Again and again, in all aspects of life, WV brings the ridicule on it's self....Gee, a multi- millionaire who is a complete goof gets a new job. My God man, just retire with your wealth and live the good life.

Only $450,000? Don't worry-Gee is an expert at padding his expense account.

Look for million dollar renovations to his home and office and millions more spent on luxury hotels, chauffeured cars, private jets and lavish dinners, all under the guise of "fundraising".

This guy spent millions of dollars while President at OSU and WVU hires him?

They must have money to burn.
