I guess that I really am not surprised to see that the title game will be played this Sunday at 2:00 Est, really!

No doubt the decision to watch a pro game or a game between two lower-level college schools will be easy for 99.99 percent of football fans!

YSU Penguin Athletics / SDU week
« on: October 26, 2022, 03:32:45 PM »
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Momentum is on the side of the Youngstown State football team right now. The Penguins are coming off back-to-back wins and have a chance to make it three straight in conference play for the first time in five years.

“There’s definitely a momentum rolling now that we’ve won two straight,” says Penguins junior quarterback Mitch Davidson. “Just looking back to the last game, it’s a win, we got out alive, but there’s a lot to learn from.”

“We have confidence and we know that we can win,” says Penguins senior safety Caleb Burr. “But at the same time, you got to know that this is the next game, and whatever we’ve done in the past that doesn’t matter anymore. We got to focus on this next game.”

“You got to be able to put that game to bed,” added Phillips. “You got to learn from it. Win or lose. Is it better learning from a win? Without question.”

YSU Penguin Athletics / Jim Tressel stepping down as YSU President
« on: June 22, 2022, 09:24:34 PM »

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Youngstown State University President Jim Tressel announced Wednesday he will be stepping down next year.

Tressel announced his decision at Wednesday afternoon’s YSU Board of Trustees committee meeting.

He plans to step down on February 1, 2023.

Board Chair John Jakubek said details regarding a plan to identify Tressel’s successor will be released as they become available.

“It has been truly a blessing and labor of love to serve Youngstown State University…I cannot thank my family enough for allowing my schedule, and the needs of our university, to take priority and center stage,” he added. “It is now only fair to have Ellen, our wonderful children and grandchildren, extended family, friends and former students, set the schedule,” said Tressel in a press release.

A native of Northeast Ohio, Tressel first came to YSU in 1986 as head football coach. In 15 years, including six as executive director of Intercollegiate Athletics, YSU won four national championships. In 2001, Tressel left YSU to become head football coach at Ohio State University. In 10 seasons, he guided the Buckeyes to the 2002 National Championship and seven Big Ten Championships.

After leaving Ohio State and after a short stint as executive vice president for Student Success at the University of Akron, Tressel returned to Youngstown to become YSU’s ninth president.

Ellen Tressel is a YSU graduate and an accomplished businesswoman and philanthropist engaged in charitable causes and community organizations. She began her own financial career in her family’s business in Youngstown and served 17 years at Butler, Wick and Co.

The Tressels are the parents of four accomplished adults – Zak, Carlee, Eric and Whitney – and have two grandchildren, Jonathan James and Rose Marie Alson.

In a letter to the staff and students at YSU, Tressel said, “It has been truly a blessing and labor of love to serve Youngstown State University in a number of capacities, and we will continue to do so, in whatever fashion that the YSU Board of Trustees sees fit.”

We reached out to Tressel for comment but he was unavailable. There will be another Board of Trustees meeting Thursday night.
