Kasich, Tressel, possible candidates for Ohio State University President

Ohio State University is reportedly considering former Ohio Governor John Kasich to become the university's next president, according to WCMH anchor Colleen Marshall.

Marshall said that two sources told her that Kasich has been in consideration for the position for several months.

A spokesperson for Kasich, Jim Lynch, tells 21 News that at this time, everything is speculative.

Several blogs and social media outlets are reporting that current YSU president and former Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel would be a good candidate for the job.

Steven Koesterman, in an article for Scarlet and Game, said that Tressel is a perfect candidate to take the helm at OSU.

Bob Mansfield, a former staff member of Tressel's at OSU and YSU, tells 21 News that he believes Tressel is a good candidate for the position.

"He would be a great fit. His record and accomplishments are amazing. I talked to him this morning, he never mentioned it. I don't want to speak for him, though if he would be interested or not," said Mansfield, "He's very happy with what he's done at YSU."

1. Wouldn't want Kasich

Not interested in a partisan Republican politician being President of our largest public university.

Jim Tressel might be ok, but I'm also skeptical about having a major college football coach as university President considering the numerous college athletics scandals that have involved school administration covering up some heinous shit. Athletics tend to foster a very cult like dynamic between coaches, players, and students.

Tressel at least has experience as a state university president, though I know nothing about how he handled the job.

6. Oh heeeeeeelllll NO to Kasich!!!

Fuck that cocky smug insufferable bastard. His 8 years as Governor are a large part of the reason why Ohio is in the retrograde mess that it's in.

He's also not an academic. I hope the OSU faculty revolt against any such proposed candidate on that basis alone.
