A series of high-profile scandals have forced leading university presidents — including Ohio State University's E. Gordon Gee and Florida Atlantic University's Mary Jane Saunders — to resign amid unprecedented scrutiny.
It was a throwaway line, intended to lighten the mood after an ominous revelation by one of the most decorated college football programs in the land.
John Glenn plans to mark the 50th anniversary of his historic spaceflight with a series of events Monday at Ohio State University, including a celebratory dinner and a chat with the International Space Station.
We'll never forget that line last March, as the Ohio State football program was unraveling, when president E. Gordon Gee was asked about possibly firing Jim Tressel. "Are you kidding?" he said. "I'm just hopeful that the coach doesn't dismiss me."
Jim Tressel made $21.7 million as Ohio State football coach over his decade-long tenure before being ousted for breaking NCAA rules, records from the publicly funded school show.
Ohio State's 2010 Big Ten championship, its 12-1 season, its victories over rival Michigan and in the Sugar Bowl _ all gone. Coach Jim Tressel is out and so is star quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
Ohio State University President E. Gordon Gee told the institution's largest graduating class that a scandal in its celebrated football program is "but a temporary condition."
No sooner had the ink dried on Jim Tressel's resignation than speculation had already started about a successor as Ohio State's coach.
'He's our coach, and we trust him implicitly." That's what Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said about Jim Tressel during a March 8 news conference. It was a strange statement, considering Smith was in the process of announcing Tressel's two-game suspension and $250,000 fine for, essentially, being dishonest.
