Also, Donovan McNabb would like RG3 to make himself scarce

Ohio State University president Gordon Gee apologized for failed humorous jabs at Notre Dame priests and the Southeastern Conference, and for calling Arkansas football coach Bret Bielema a “thug.”

Ohio State officials believe Gee can continue to run the school effectively, provided he never opens his mouth again.

Meanwhile, Ohio State has announced it will expand Ohio Stadium to 104,829 in 2014. The move will allow 2,500 more fans to attend the game and test out the strength of their binoculars.

Sideshow commentary

Donovan McNabb says Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has “too much” going on right now and risks becoming a “sideshow” while he's recovering from ACL surgery.

Hmm. Sounds like someone could use their own Subway commercial.

Two can play this game

San Diego Chargers linebacker Dwight Freeney said he is eager to have the chance to try to sack former teammate Peyton Manning.

Manning has not commented, but sources say he's looking forward to Freeney dropping into pass coverage, too.

Name that driver

Jimmie Johnson disagreed with NASCAR's decision to penalize him for jumping the restart in Dover, Del., and passing then-leader Juan Pablo Montoya.

Fans were shocked. Juan Pablo Montoya was leading a race?

You can't handle the truth

Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis fired the team's public relations director, apparently because he was upset over how a Sports Illustrated story portrayed Davis and his late father, Al Davis.

Doesn't anyone else think it's ironic that this move gives Davis more bad P.R.?

Get Jay-Z on the phone!

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has fired agent Drew Rosenhaus. Rosenhaus persuaded Jackson to sign a five-year, $51 million contract in 2012.

In retrospect, Jackson believes a better agent would have helped him get overpaid by a lot more than that.
