A newspaper out of Alliance, Ohio has interviewed Akron football coach Terry Bowden about the competitiveness of the Zips since he took over the program.

There's an aside toward the end of the story, however, that involves Jim Tressel's candidacy for the job of university president. 

"I'd like to see (Tressel) get it," Bowden said of the former Buckeye head man. "He can build a program. He can lead. He knows how to activate the morale of a university."

Tressel, who also has a number of people hoping he'll take over at Youngstown State, is one of 19 individuals who have applied for the position at Akron.
