OREGON, Ohio (AP)Ohio State Universitys president is officially forgiven for turning the Little Sisters of the Poor into a punch line.

Gordon Gee caused a stir last November while talking about football and who should get a chance to play for the college title.

In an interview with The Associated Press, he mocked other universities outside the power conferences by saying the Buckeyes didnt play the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Gee spent Wednesday morning just outside Toledo touring a home for the elderly thats operated by the religious order.

He says his wisecrack turned out to be a good thing because its helped promote the good work of the sisters.

The nuns say all is forgiven and plan to take up Gees offer to attend an Ohio State football game this fall.
