Institutions no longer need a president in the old sense of academia.
University presidents should have their degree in business administration. They are, after all, running a large "corporation". They have to deal with fund raising, unions, budgets, etc. As far as curriculum is concerned they have provosts and deans for every specialty to handle that.
Lets hire a proven business CEO that can run "YSU Company". Jim Tressel is a unique individual. I don't know if he's the answer, but I would bet that he would do a better job than Anderson, Cochran and Sweet. They were all mediocre at best.

I DON'T THINK THAT MEYER IS SEEING WELL AT ALL. HE SAID THAT THEY ARE GOING TO WORK HARD NOW SO THAT THEY CAN WIN THE ORANGE BOWL.
ONE THING TO WORK ON IS TO NOT GIVE STUPID PLAYS TO BRAXTON MILLER. HE LOOKED TERRIBLE AGAINST MICH.STATE BECAUSE HE COULDN'T EXECUTE THE PLAYS SENT IN BY MEYER !!

Get a life Porter. This must be the first and only time that he has been given a little authority in his life. . Let's get rid of Porter and elect someone that uses his energy for the betterment of the schools and not nit pick the Supt. I can't believe that I am reading something this stupid.

David Betras is a loud mouthed, egotistical, power hungry empty suit. His lack of brain power is masked by his ranting and raving. He should be banished from the public arena. Youngstown deserves better.

As they say......a picture is worth a thousand words !!
How about less words and show us some of Silverman's work which would make the article more interesting.

What a travesty of justice. We should have shot the SOBs that brought the slaves over to this country in the first place. Just think how peaceful the world would be.....no blacks here........ and how happy the blacks would be...... to still be in their jungle home with no predjudice.

I thank God everyday for giving our fighting men and women the stength to protect the freedoms of our great country.
I also pray that we will be able to have the same strength and courage to endure the current spineless commander in chief who is on a path to destroy the freedoms that these brave soldiers fought for.
God help us all !!!
