The stuff you read was all hearsay and a bunch of crap (which is why tOSU was still recruiting him). It mostly came from the nasty **** tOSU fans were saying about Gibson, which them snowballed. tOSU does not have different academic standards for athletes than any other school has (again, save for Stanford and schools that take props like, say, Marshall -- and I think even Tennessee).

FWIW, this kind of garbage gets thrown around every year, so it's not surprising to see a group of fans get pissy when they miss out on a kid. But make no mistake -- they recruited Gibson hard and he simply wanted to go elsewhere.
