    UM and OSU embarassed by comments on both sides

    OSU President Gordon Gee

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State University's top trustees say insensitive comments by the university president have embarrassed and divided the university.

    The trustees say in a letter to president Gordon Gee that his comments risk diminishing the collective efforts of the university and of Gee's own good work.

    The March 11 letter was obtained Friday by The Associated Press.

    It lays out several steps Gee must take following the revelation of remarks he made last year jabbing Notre Dame, Roman Catholics and the Southeastern Conference.

    Those steps include issuing personal apologies and getting help from professionals to revisit Gee's personal communications and speechwriting processes.

    The fathers are holy on Sunday, and they're holy hell on the rest of the week," Gee is quoted as saying at the meeting that AP says was attended by Athletic Director Gene Smith and several other athletic department members, along with professors and students.

    "You just can't trust those damn Catholics on a Thursday or a Friday, and so, literally, I can say that," said Gee, a Mormon, the AP reported.

    UM Football Announcer / Right wing columnist or whatever Frank Beckmannn


    ANN ARBOR -- The University of Michigan has publicly scolded Frank Beckmann, the voice of Wolverines football for more than three decades, for comments he made last week in a Detroit News column.

    Beckmann opined May 24 that golfer Sergio Garcia's comments regarding Tiger Woods and fried chicken were just another example of overblown political correctness. He (as well as Garcia) has since apologized for the remarks.

    eckmann has not been disciplined for his column, which read, in part:

    What the Spanish golfer – wonder if he favors paella? – didn’t realize is that fried chicken was once a popular dish among American slaves who were not allowed to own livestock and couldn’t avail themselves of other southern delicacies like steak and ham.
    To the politically correct, the mention of fried chicken is an immediate endorsement of slavery rather than a testament to the innovative determination of the American slave population to improve its own physical wellbeing by creating a readily available dish which improved their diet.

    Making fried chicken and popularizing it could thus be viewed as an accomplishment that should serve as a testament to the determination of a group of people who found an inventive way to subsist while enduring unimaginable and deplorable living conditions.

    But that would remove the opportunity of the political elite to capitalize by creating an atmosphere of victimization."

    So much butthurt flowing over the most petty chit these days. I thought what Gee said was hilarious, and plenty of catholics feel the same way. I don't know where so many people these days picked up the notion that they have a right to "never be offended". You can be offended by any number of things on a daily basis if you choose to. All it takes is for enough people to cry about something, then the media-lynchmob begins and it's basically gone full-blown aids.
