Now that Tressel has officially started at UA, I figure we can keep track of what he's doing in this thread. It seems as if UA is already getting him out there quite a bit.

Tressel spoke at Manchester High School last week. ESPN Cleveland's website is featuring an advertisement for a luncheon with Tressel on May 31st.

This blog claims that Tressel planned to retire from coaching after 2012, before the scandal even occurred.

Finally, I'll share a cool story from a friend of mine that I think you will all appreciate. He said he was sitting on the steps of Buchtel Hall in between his classes and was wearing an Ohio State t-shirt. An older gentleman in a suit approached him, smiled, and said, "Hey, we need to get you to the bookstore to get a new shirt."

He looked up to see the man was none other than Jim Tressel.

That doesn't seem very safe haha...I remember back in my UA days if you ventured south of Exchange you're pretty much guaranteed to be mugged. Hopefully Tressel had some bodyguards!

If you had said that to Tressel, he might have asked you when you were planning to take your first UA English class. :)

found this on facebook. Tressel was at Springfest. BTW, should this be in the football thread or General Campus?

I'll move it to "General Campus" now, since the only thing we have proof of him doing is trying to sell an Akron T-shirt.
When someone else can provide some more information (hopefully basketball), we'll move it again.

Eh...during the beginning of this school year, it seemed that crime South of campus was as bad as it's been since I've been here (I believe I even posted in a thread about it). However, I don't believe I've gotten a single email from the University Spring Semester. They'll usually email when a murder, robbery, etc happen near campus. Seems like there is an increase in police and the UPA has their own patrol vehicles now along with guards, cops, whatever you want to call them walking the streets daily.

If you had said that to Tressel, he might have asked you when you were planning to take your first UA English class. :)

I'm actually done with all of my English classes at UA. Just a typo ;)

Go to the Akron PD website. You can plug in specific street names(you can do multiple streets) and you can find all the incidents that drew a response for whatever time period you want. South of campus is a very busy area.

I sure hope UPA can actually accomplish their vision for the area south of campus. I doubt it will happen, since the initial plan showed a complete rebuild of the area. But it's a nice thought. I'd be happy if they could at least clean up exchange and make it a safe and enjoyable place for students and fans on gamedays.

Perfectly understandable L. They should never have put the e and n keys so close to the s, a and w keys. Bless your heart.
