In The Region:

The temporary president of Ohio State University says he is hoping for a good football season, but he will be focusing on his other duties as well.

Joe Alutto took over for Gordon Gee, who retired last month after controversy over several headline-making verbal gaffes. Alutto was interim president before Gee was hired for the second time in 2007.

Alutto says now that Ohio State could be back in the running for the national championship this year, he has told coach Urban Meyer he is expecting big results.

“I am 5 and 0," Alutto says. "I was 5 and 0 as interim the first time. I’ve told Urban he has to continue that, so we’ll how it is. And that’s all in fun. Football’s very important, but it’s not the most important thing.”

Ohio State was banned from post-season play last year because of NCAA violations in the tattoos-for-memorabilia scandal that led to coach Jim Tressel’s resignation.

Off the field, Alutto says he will be focusing on pushing the OSU brand and making college more affordable.
