So far, all of the Buckeyes drafted are on strong teams that can/will make a run to the Super Bowl. Meanwhile, Cleveland and Cincy will simply watch these former Buckeyes  succeed.

Manti Te'o called, he is trying to get a hold of Bassdropper.

"As soon as slavery fired upon the flag it was felt, we all felt, even those who did not object to slaves, that slavery must be destroyed. We felt that it was a stain to the Union that men should be bought and sold like cattle.

There had to be an end of slavery. Then we were fighting an enemy with whom we could not make a peace. We had to destroy him. No convention, no treaty was possible – only destruction."

Gen. Ulysses S. Grant secured victory of the Civil War, which set the stage for the success of the remaining participants in this epic 11W HOIA Classic.

This confirms yet again why I believe Ed Warinner is the best coaching hire UFM has made. And while I don't quite understand why he was passed over for head coaching vacancies this past year, I am more than pleased he is here. Can you imagine where this year's team would be without Ed Warinner?

History repeats, Gen. Sherman steps aside for Gen. Grant. 

"I will accept no commission that would tend to create a rivalry with Grant. I want him to hold what he has earned and got. I have all the rank I want."

Gen. Ulysses S. Grant advances to the Final Four.

Gen. Sherman arguably saved the nation with his epic thrashing of the South, breaking their will to continue the war.

While John Glenn was the first American to orbit the earth, he finished second to the Russian, Yuri Gagarin.

The Greatest Ohioan cannot finish second. Vote for Sherman.

Since this is the Politics/Military regional, here is the scoreboard for the contestants:

Ulysses S. Grant 1-0-0, Civil War.

William T. Sherman 1-0-0, Civil War, All BigTen & All-American for ravaging the SEC.

Tecumseh 0-2-0, defeated by the Continental Army, and later by the U.S. Army at the Battle of Thames.

John Glenn 0-1-1, Korean Conflict stalemate, later lost in the primary in his bid for the presidency.

The choices are obvious: Grant and Sherman advance!

Comment 28 Mar 2014

Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman, originator of the power spread offense, speaking at his press conference 

Look to the (SEC) and you who went with us through that land can best say if they have not been fearfully punished. Mourning is in every household, desolation written in broad characters across the whole face of their country, cities in ashes and fields laid waste, their commerce gone, their system of labor annihilated and destroyed. Ruin and poverty and distress everywhere, and now pestilence adding to the very cap sheaf of their stack of misery.

-Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman, the man who left a 60 mile wide, 300 mile long path of death and desolation across GA and up through SC.

Major props to DJ for yet another awesome throwback skully photo, for the third day in a row!  I was fortunate enough to be a member of TBDBITL, and that day I was in the loop of the "h" watching Wayne Woodrow Hayes dot the "i". Can't say I have heard the stadium any louder...
