Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee says the NCAA had no precedent for giving Ohio State a bowl ban -- and for a change, Gordon Gee is right.
Has a school ever been busted because its head coach knew about violations by the team's best three or four players, didn't report those violations, then built a BCS-bowl season around those three or four illegally eligible players?
Has that ever happened?
No. It has not.
So E. Gordon Gee is right when he says, and I quote, "I'm a lawyer. I take a look at precedent. There's no precedent for a bowl ban for us."
So true, E. Gordon. No precedent for any of this.
I bet you were one dandy of a lawyer.
Next, try public speaking. You're the best I've ever seen at it.
