    Does anybody know what Tressel's tendencies were at YSU, in terms of hiring/firing/moving around members of his staff? Did he ever fire an OC or DC to save face after a 3-8-type season? Or did he stay "loyal" and give them chances to improve their performance?

    He doesn't do anything to "save face"...he does what he thinks is best for the team, regardless of what others think. His record speaks for itself. If you're looking for a parallel of the 1995 Penguins and the 2004 Buckeyes, or an indicator of what he might do later, or after, this season based on what may have happened nine years ago, you're barking up the wrong tree. Oh yeah, last time I checked, we're not 3-8 yet...

    Are you asking, does he know how to make the changes necessary to turn things around? I would have to say Yes.

    Ex-Youngstown St. coach, 93, dies

    CLEVELAND (AP) -- Dom Rosselli, the winningest basketball and baseball coach at Youngstown State, has died. He was 93.
    The university says Rosselli died Tuesday morning.
    Rosselli totaled 1,000 career wins in the two sports over 38 years. He also served as an assistant football coach for 21 years.
    Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel said Rosselli will be missed because he affected so many lives. Tressel coached Youngstown State for 15 years before moving to the Buckeyes.
    Rosselli is survived by his wife, Connie, four children and several grandchildren.

    Cincinnati RBs coach Doug Phillips named as Bo Pelini’s replacement at Youngstown State

    Bo Pelini has officially been replaced.

    Late last month, Bo Pelini stepped down as the head coach at Youngstown State after five seasons to become the defensive coordinator at LSU. Two weeks later, the FCS program confirmed that Doug Phillips has been named as the replacement for Bo Pelini.

    The hiring of Phillips is a homecoming of sorts as he was a graduate assistant at YSU in 1991-92. The Penguins head coach at the time? Jim Tressel, the former Ohio State head coach who is now YSU’s president.
