georgej...what a lame, stupid, insensitive comment. You have NO idea who these people are...what their work ethic is/was, and/or the service they provided to the university. Don't ever assume anything, because, after all, it's what they say, you make an A$$ out of yourself when you do.

Why is when I read this letter, I can hear it being read by the Church Lady from SNL?

billdog, with all due respect, you are wrong. there are full time tenured faculty without phd's..look for them in areas such as the allied health science or some tech programs. there are also full time master's level faculty...most times they hold the title of "instructor". accrediting bodies are very picky about the percentage of full time vs part time faculty. there are a few full time nontenure track faculty, but they are, in fact, pretty rare.

Must see TV for sure ...but certainly not an academy award winning performance!

No other way to describe it...Sciortino's rant on tv was just bizarre.

Wow knightcap, have you actually been on a college campus in the last 40 years? I don't think I've ever seen anyone wearing one of those elbow patch blazers!!!!

Looks like many of the above comments are written by folks who might be writing with a influx of testosterone to their brains. It is fair game to question whether or not Tressel is qualified to be a university president. At least admit the trustees made an unconventional choice...I don't think there's another university president in the country today whose experience matches Tressel's. The staff, students, and faculty of Akron did not think he was qualified for the position of president...they didn't compare to Hitler for God's sake. Keep in mind Akron ASKED for the input of its constituents...whereas the board at YSU did not solicit anyone's opinion other than their own and perhaps a handful of wealthy community leaders. Also, the search process at Akron took 9 months...at YSU, the search was hastily completed in less than three. Does anyone really think that any other candidate was seriously considered at YSU? No one can say COACH Tressel didn't do a great job at YSU or OSU....but it's legitimate to question whether PRESIDENT Tressel will perform as well. In America, it's still OK to question authority. That doesn't make Bertram a hater.....

No, the union PRESIDENTS endorsed Tressel...not the membership. You should know that. And I don't know who you were speaking to ytown35 because there were a number of faculty and staff who had the same reservations as the faculty, students, and staff at Akron. I, too, attended every public meeting and Tressel did not answer the tough questions from the Jambar and other members in the audience. And...like seriouslee states, this entire dog and pony show was rigged from the beginning. Does that mean I won't support him now that he is president? Absolutely not. YSU is a great institution. I think we can all agree on that.
