COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio State University is taking a narrow view of the latest verbal gaffes by school president Gordon Gee.
Gee is participating in a remediation plan created by trustees who met with Gee at length when they learned of the remarks.
Gee referred to "damn Catholics" when discussing Notre Dame and attacked the academic integrity of the Southeastern Conference in a recording obtained by The Associated Press.
Gee once called the governor of Ohio a "dummy" out of frustration over higher education funding and likened keeping track of university divisions to the "Polish Army."
Those comments and others may have drawn frowns from Ohio State officials but not the kind of rebuke that followed his recent remarks.
