Petition Closed

The Ohio State University has been the topic of many ethic violations in regards to NCAA sports lately. We have seen a head coach leave, we have seen people punished. We have seen students fined and put off the team. We have also seen the perception of Ohio State diminish as well. We can not let this go on any further. We have to get rid of the problem. We have to start fresh and we have to get rid of the enabler. Gene Smith has proven well his tenure but he has also proved to be a failure on some things. We have appreciated his service but he has to go. We see his sub-ordinates leave but he is in charge of them. He enabled what has happened in ALL sorts and he needs to be held accountable. Gene Smith needs to resign or the Ohio State University needs to release him.
