footballscoop.com and per Bob Hannon on WKBN radio this morning. He was to be offered the job and withdrew his name to take the YSU job. That's a fact. So put that in your pipe and smoke it, Abe.

To billdog and all of the other typical negative miserable morons who worship at the smelly feet of Bertie deSouza--Tressel WAS offered the Akron job and chose YSU. So there. It's a great day to be a YSU grad. School gets a needed shot in the arm.

Come on down, Jimmy T!! You Tressel haters, prepare to pack your bags!!

Of all the stupid things said in these comment blogs, Chessiedad takes the gold medal!! Tressel wasn't supposed to leave a Division 1-AA school for arguably one of the top 5 Division 1 football jobs in the country? At 5 times the money? Surely you would leave your job at the locally owned gas station pumping gas to work for big conglomerate BP, no? Classic Youngstown idiot.

Just read above everyone to see why Youngstown is the aging, bitter capital of the world with a dwindling population and people who condemn everything put in front of them. Check most of the comments posted by many of the above. Nothing but negative. Bertie pied piper followers right to the bitter end. Until nothing is left. Losers.

Tressel is the only one that can save this university right now, especially financially. You idiots act like he murdered somebody at O$U, where he was thrown under the bus by Gordon Geek and his minions. It's typical Youngstown to trash someone without having a viable alternative.Chessiedad--if you're not happy here, pack it and move. And Wahoo--being a university prez today IS about raising money--you can hire any egghead with a PhD to run academics. But schools are drowning in debt. Tressel will eliminate that debt.

Once again Bertie looks in the mirror, realizes he'll be working for this hack newspaper for the rest of his miserable life, and attacks what he wishes he had chosen to become. The big question: will anyone be able to understand him when he says in broken english: "Welcome to Wal-Mart???"

A member of the coaching staff?? Hardly. Someone who has watched a great deal of basketball for several years and is smart enough to see entitlement gone haywire? Bingo! First of all, Hvisdak was NOT recruited by YSU and secondly, she SIGNED OFF on this being a one year deal. She scored 22 points in 17 games and thinks her scholly will be renewed?? Seriously?? Look, she's a hard-working kid who by all accounts is a nice young lady. She's also a Division 3 player at best. Time for family and friends to put their big boy/girl pants on and realize this and move on.

Sour grapes all. While Davis is a good player, she didn't follow rules and needed to go. Barger is a D2 player at best and Hvisdak is a D3 player at best. Both don't belong on a D1 roster. Hvisdak knew it was a 1 year deal for a scolly yet complains. Recruits coming in will render these 3 pointless. Barnes is an excellent coach and a good person despite how this story paints him. We'll be lucky to hold on to him.
