Never been a Gee fan, though. I thought Dan Wetzel summed it up well in an article yesterday:
It would be easy for the rest of the country to brush of old E. Gordon as just a guy in Ohio with a lack of self-awareness who either entertains them or infuriates them or is just worth ignoring. How much is your life influenced by some far-off school president?
The problem is he's spent his career moonlighting as one of the chief busybodies and reformers of the NCAA. ...
E. Gordon Gee is the NCAA: tone deaf, clumsy, situationally arrogant and obsessed with bringing in more and more money (and making sure Delany, or anyone else, doesn't then get their paws on it).
