They found that former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel still has a higher approval rating (65%) than current head man Urban Meyer (60%). However, more fans would rather have Meyer at the helm.
Of those polled, 38% want Meyer holding the clipboard, 33% Tressel and 29% are unsure.
And perhaps not surprisingly, given the way Tressel’s OSU career ended, Tressel’s unfavorablity rating (14%) is higher than the percentage of respondents who disapprove of how Meyer has handled himself so far (2%).
PPP also asked about Ohioans NFL preferences and they summarize those answers thusly:
37% of Ohio voters identify themselves as Browns fans to 21% who go with the Bengals. But they’re realistic about the calibers of the respective teams- 40% think the Bengals will have a better season to 26% who pick the Browns.
