I thought Akron just fired him!!?!
Jim Tressel hired by Akron?
The NCAA decided to allow them to have 3 coaching staffs as it would not give them an unfair advantage.
He's going from Akron State to Akron
Akron State, Akron or Ohio State, Ohio. It's all the same thing.
The proper name is "The Akron State", only used by the special alums of those fightin' Bobcats
Show some respect, please. They're the Golden Bobcats, not the Fighting Bobcats.
I love this site
According to the twitter.... and If the twitter says it, it has to be true.
I feel sorry for Akron.
He will build his staff and get his program instituted and in 4 years once he has the foundation set, and his show cause expires, he will step in as head coach and hit the ground running with no transtition. this is disgusting and a HUGE slap in the face to the NCAA. the only good thing is, in a couple years akron will be stealing recruits from Urban.
how are the colts gonna function with out their all star video replay consultant????
He certainly did a bang-up job this year, given their record...
"hired by the University" is an interesting phrasing. I guess show-cause wouldn't apply if he's not a football coach. His football lectures were epic I hear, maybe he's a professor.
I was thinking the exact same thing. Can he even be involved with the football team?
Didn't he get hit with a Show Cause? Doesn't any school who hires him have to go through hell and back to justify it?
You actually believed that? This is St. Tresel we're talking about here! The NCAA totally owes him one for letting the lid off of the ohio scandal that got him canned, they'll probably chip in a few bucks for his salary cuz he's such a super duper fella!
Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. Majorly confused here.
Akron's already in hell, so it's no big deal.
Does the show cause apply to all positions or only coaching positions?
Sounds made up...
Usually a post like the following is marked as spam, but it is quite appropriate:
...only applies to coaching positions. My understanding is that he has hired as head of Akron's Compliance department.
The best way to learn how to get around the law is to talk to a successful criminal.
Man how many more douchebags can that state hold?
You obviously don't live here...
When Dantonio left .
I was drinking soda and spit it out reading the Douchebag thing. I told my wife the other day that PA residents look like the smartest people on earth because they are smack in the middle of two states that have the most Dbags in the country. Dirty Jersey and Ohio.
An alumni of Akron. I cannot wait to win at all costs. All kidding aside I am not too happy with this.
Thank the Lord I love the Univ. of Michigan. So nice to win and conduct business with class.
We don't need to be presumptious.
This has to be part of the "In The Event Terry Bowden Doesn't Work Out And We're Desperate" plan at Akron, I imagine....
Apparently, Tressel and Akron share "a common interest in innovative programs for student success"
There's so much humor possibility in that statement. Just the word "innovative" alone is good for a couple dozen decent jokes. Getting innovative with the rule book is a good start.
The good start line, plus the reference to Ohio people, makes the following mandatory.
I think Tressel has changed the tide on the MAC. Hell people in Akron are starting to enable him. Never in a million years I would have thought that. Getting innovative with the rule book is a good start.
Can we not create threads about every little rumor that circulates around the web?
just...no, I don't want to live in that world
I was enjoying all the snarky commentary, then you go and bring reality and morality into play.....boo to you sir
Lets get Akron on the schedule ASAP...we are beating this ass clown and i dont care if its "Just" Akron
Akron is on the schedule next year.
in 2013 (3rd game). Other NC games are CMU, ND, and @UConn. Crossover games are @PSU, Indiana, and osu.
He'll probably be in charge of fixing raffles and whatnot. They probably think he can somehow help them when we play them, comical people being comical
Here's a quote from what Akron sent the reporter:
We share a common interest in innovative programs for student success.
It can definitely be said that Tressel was "innovative" at providing extra benefits to players. Is that what they mean by "student success?"
That department title has just been changed to "Department of Non-Compliance".
For the record, they also considered Department of Duplicity, Department of Dirty Pool, and Department of Baldfaced Illicitness. I think they made the right choice.
time to start a Tatoo parlor in Akron!!!
It's very apparent that Ohio or Mr. T did not get slapped hard enough with sanctions to really have them learn a lesson. Ohio has a top 5 recruiting class and after a year Tressell will be coaching in colege again. WTF!!!
Didn't the NCAA include a five year show cause order when they were smacking Ohio on the wrist which was to have kept old Tress out of coaching college ball for five years?
He wouldn't coach, just be an administrator. Not necessarily even part of the football program, technically anyways.
I hear it's in compliance.
Comes off as a guy who would have a lower back tat that says "MACtion".
You guys are all retarded and have no f-cking clue what you are talking about! And for once, understand what you post before you further your ignorant a*s comments. Theres no show cause when you work for the University itself!!! And further more the NCAA is not above the F.B.I. , in which who Tressel was working with in the investigation..... technically he didnt have to tell the NCAA didly crap!!! The NCAA is a waste of breath but pretends its above & beyond every one.
where I will disregard my signature and wholeheartedly endorse "lol"
Well aren't you just a little bundle of fun
For everyone, on me.
if you mean you pay for everyone's tatoos, or you get tatoos on other people's behalf on your body. Either would be interesting, and I think you could interest Tressel in such an offer.
You're an angry little elf (troll), aren't you?
I feel like Ohio IPs should have to pass a reading test or something.
another easy class from Professor Tressel.
just never gets old. Never been there but Akron must suck
