Notre Dame head coach Marcus Freeman has clarified the comments he made about academic standards at Ohio State.

Appearing on Morning Juice on 97.1 The Fan in Columbus on Wednesday (h/t ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg), Freeman said he would “never discredit the quality of education” at Ohio State.

Freeman caused a stir in an interview with CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd that was published June 10.

“I’m not saying from top to bottom, but the majority of our kids, they—I want to say this the right way—are pushed to learn and their study habits are formulated every day. You can’t cheat academics at Notre Dame,” he said.

To emphasize his point, Freeman mentioned his alma mater of Ohio State as an academic institution where there were more avenues available to students to pass classes.

“If you don’t go to class [at those places], OK. Take some online classes. Show up for your final,” Freeman said rhetorically. “At Notre Dame, you’re forced every day to go to class.”
