LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- UofL President, Dr. James Ramsey, is firing back after some controversial comments by the President of Ohio State University Gordon Gee.

During a meeting of the Ohio State Athletic Council in December, he said the Big Ten Conference wouldn't accept UofL because academics at UofL aren't up to par.

The story brought strong reactions.

Gee has since tweeted out "I am truly sorry for my comments -- such attempts at humor do not reflect Ohio State values, nor my role as its president."
