I was born and raised in Y-town,graduated from YSU and also have a graduate degree from OSU.My wife and I are Penguins and Buckeyes to the core.I am a big admirer of Jim Tressel.He did screw up and has certainly paid a heavy price.Either we believe in giving people the opportunity to exercise their skills and abilities after they have served their punishment or we don't.
Jim Tressel is beloved in the Northeast Ohio area and well thought of by his peers and many people throughout the country.He has class, smarts, great organizational and leadership abilities and is super well connected.Would he have his detractors as president of YSU? Without a doubt.Every university president does.Higher academics Is a very political arena.
In my opinion the pluses he would bring to the position far, far outweigh any negatives attached to Tatto-Gate which pales when compared to the past resumes and recent escapades of many other coaches,politicians and business leaders.Jim Tressel is totally sincere in his desire to help young people and would be a definite asset to Youngstown State.I hope it is more than a wishful thinking rumor that has been circulating in the Youngstown area for some time.It would be a great fit for JT and for YSU!!

In terms of being qualified it really depends on how they have the job set up. Some university prez's are just the face of the school and they are mainly a fundraiser and goodwill ambassador. Other people actually run the place. Other places the prez actually runs the place. They can craft the job around JT's strengths.
