Gordon Gee says Alvarez thought Bielema was a thug, hear comments in full

Ohio State’s president Gordon Gee can’t seem to get out of the spotlight and the Big Ten has to be thrilled about that.  The full audio from his meeting in December has been published by Sports Illustrated and at the 14:30 mark, Gee sounds off on Wisconsin Athletic Director Barry Alvarez’s thoughts on Bret Bielema.

“Someone was saying to me, well, you know, Bret Bielema leaving … that was a blessing for Wisconsin and they knew it. Because he was under tremendous pressure. They didn’t like him. Barry Alvarez thought he was a thug. And he left just ahead of the sheriff.”

Ohio State’s board of trustees must just be thrilled that Gee decided to spend a half hour ripping so many different people in one meeting.
