The full audio of Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee’s misguided comments revealed an assertion that Barry Alvarez thought former coach Bret Bielema was “a thug.”
“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.”
The bow-tie-wearing wannabe comedian tried to smooth things over last night with an e-mailed apology to Bielema. It looks like it was accepted.
It’s a start from Mr. Gee. Will take his apology and phone call soon. #1-0 twitter.com/BretBielema/st…
