OK, I guess I understand the sliding scale concept. It's probably worth fighting for. However to say, "The faculty has been disgruntled for a very long time. They’re demoralized..the faculty feels they’ve made sacrifices and gotten nothing in return" is the kind of attitude which won't win friends for the unions. They need to keep in mind how fortunate they are. There are thousands of people...probably tens-of-thousands...who aren't anywhere close to having the kind of pay and benefits those union members have. That doesn't give a pass to administrators who are also pretty well off, but for the unions to whine in public about being treated badly while the community and the university are struggling in so many ways seems arrogant and uncaring.

I thought the Browns were supposed to have a decent defense. If it had played at all well the in first half, the Browns might be 1-and-0. Instead, it's just more of the same...cruel disappointment for Browns fans.

Accidents will happen...mostly for the same reason many of them happen...drivers being impatient and/or discourteous.My question is why haven't more prominent intersections received roundabouts?

It's time to put up AND shut up, Johnny.

Actually, the Browns could use a 16-game pre-season and a 4-game regular season. It may take 16 weeks to put a semblance of a decent team together.

It's actually good to have someone with experience in the program winning the job. The fact that he went out and earned it rather than just be the least ineffective of 3 weak options is encouraging. Wells and Davis are good enough to keep Nania working to keep his job. Now let's hope the offensive line comes together so Nania can play up to his potential and give the offense a chance to be productive.

OK, everyone deserves a chance to prove they're better than their past. However, that comes with great responsibility. Richmond needs to be held accountable for his conduct. His margin for error is very small.

Nothing has changed. They still can't find the end zone with a search party and a pack of bloodhounds.

Remember when Y.S.U. teams took pride in playing in "The Ice Castle" and considered it to be home field advantage?"They came out with the mindset that they don’t care if it’s rain, hail, sleet or snow. They wanted to get in the playoffs and that’s what happened. We went out and we curled up." That quote says a lot about a lack of leadership. Perhaps that has been a key missing element the last 3 years. Teams with leaders...from the top down...succeed. Those without it don't. Is anyone taking notes?

This event is an example of what Tressel did as football coach; he delivered a positive message tied to Y.S.U. which enhanced recruiting. Now he's recruiting students by building new or stronger relationships with local secondary education administrators. That's what leaders do.
