The same commenters complaining about Tressel are most likely the people that voted for McNally and Sciortino. Tressel was following the directions of Gene Smith OSU's athletic director. The purpose of the deception--Urban Meyer.

Well Kurt, you need to scroll back a bit. I find the Hagans useless, unless you want legalized weed in Ohio which I do not support. Nothing in my original post indicated any support of Hagan. Perhaps, your sarcasm radar needs a tune-up.

Oh Kurt w--what a bummer of a thought. Time to retire and leave the Mahoning Valley.

So Mrs. Hagan is so special, YSU should ignore state law and let her stay on at YSU. Federal District judge Algenon Marbley had to step down from the Ohio State University Board of Trustees because he received compensation for teaching at OSU while on the Board which is an ethics violation and against the ORC. Voters should expect their legislators to know and follow the law (I know that is a novel concept in Y-town). Apparently Lepore Hagen has more right to double dip and suck the public teet than federal district judge because YSU is sexist and she is a woman.

Regarding Pelini's remarks--He should be held accountable. He is a loose cannon that not even Tressel will be able to civilize. If he were my son or husband, I would duct tape his mouth shut. Women of Youngstown band together and boycott YSU football or better yet cheer for the opposing team. I cannot wait to watch the Penguins get their butts kicked by Pitt in the season opener.

Bo is a loose cannon. I give him 2 years at YSU. No university fires a coach with a record like Pelini's and buys out the contract unless the coach is either despicable or an embarrassment. Smell the roses Cardinal Mooney groupies because Bo will not be around long.

I love the people who believe that dissolving the school district and sending the Y-town students to other Mahoning County Districts will get rid of the problems of the school district. This is a joke, because you are just spreading the problems around. The high performing suburban districts do not want the unmotivated students ruining their district's test scores. Good parenting makes successful students and I believe that is evident with the small number of students in the Youngstown schools who have performed well. Look at the city school students who are successful and see what has led them to success and try to replicate the home and social supports for those doing poorly.

I personally could trust Betras more if he and the Democratic party had not endorsed Sciortino and found a more ethical candidate to put on the ballot. Sciortino should be thanking Betras for his pre-election support.

The valley of morons are forever entwined with the city of morons who voted for the mayoral candidate implicated and eventually indicted in the same scheme as Sciortino. Today's candidates feel no moral or ethical obligation to avoid any appearance of impropriety and the voter's have no desire to hold candidates to any standard at all. I think that Sciortino's stint in alcohol rehab beginning the day the indictments were served is second only to the Don Hanni post office accident defense. Well played Mr. Sciortino. We reap what we sow and in this county it smells like manure.

Years and years of poor judgment and electing Democrats got the city exactly where it is today. The steel mills with the lucrative union jobs and 13 weeks vacation are not coming back. Can you spell D-E-T-R-O-I-T?
