Maybe Gene Smith could pick up the extra night hotel tab with the bonus he earned from the recent national championship titles earned by Logan Steiber (wrestling) and the Synchronized Swimming team.
"For a time, at least, I was the most famous person in the entire world."
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?
Nick Saban agrees with you
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.
Is he going to buy the first round of beverages in the Premium Lounge?
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!
Did Woody develop his disdain for the media after reading Sherman?
"If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world, but I am sure we would be getting reports from Hell before breakfast.
-Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman
Be sure to read his follow up book "A Sorrow In Our Heart: The Life Of Tecumseh". It's even better than "The Frontiersman", if that's even possible.
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.
Regarding today's Skull Session throwback picture of Woody dotting the "i" (to thunderous applause in Ohio Stadium), is DJ trying to exert undue influence in the voting process?
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...
The Hanson Bros. vote for Paul Newman
Steven Spielberg can't do this, he's not cool enough.
Spielberg is a weenie and could not even come close to eating 50 eggs.
What else do you need to see? Neil Armstrong advances!
For the second day in a row, the throwback Skull Session picture is just awesome! The picture of Art looks like it is after the 18-15 victory over scUM that ended a three year losing streak and put the Buckeyes in the Rose Bowl. And is that a bottle of Jack Daniels hoisted by a fan (right side of the picture)?
Major props for the Jack Tatum throwback picture, that just made my day. I submit that every Wednesday skully should feature a Jack Tatum picture. And when are we going to see those uniforms on the field again, they are absolutely phenomenal!
As Steve Spurrier once said "You can't spell Citrus (Bowl) without UT."
Gene Smith disagrees, UFM is #8
"Urban's still in the top 10. He's probably in the top 8, he came in at top 5, he's probably slidden, he might be in the top 8 now. There will be a time, probably when he wins a championship, or there's some elite performance of that nature where we need to look at the market again."
Wow. There's a lot going on in that picture.
