Gordon Gee apologizes for anti-Catholic remarks

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, OH (WOIO) -

Gordon Gee, the outspoken Ohio State University president, has stirred things up again, saying at a meeting in December that Notre Dame wasn't invited to join the Big Ten because Catholics can't be trusted.

Gee, speaking at a meeting of the school's athletic council, said "the fathers are holy on Sunday, and they're holy hell on the rest of the week. You just can't trust those damn Catholics on a Thursday or a Friday, and so, literally, I can say that."

The university called the statements inappropriate and said Gee is undergoing a "remediation plan."

Gee apologized, saying he was just trying to be funny.
