|2 days 13 hours ago||Sherman marched to Atlanta from the Northwest||
The Atlanta Campaign, began in Chattanooga, TN. If they passed through Alabama, it would have been the Northeast corner. Having captured and burned Atlanta, Sherman's march to the sea departed from Atlanta and went on to Savannah.
One of the Generals from the Atlanta campaign - John T. Croxton - is the one who later in 1865 captured and burned most of the University of Alabama and anything of value in Tuscaloosa. It is said however that the University President's wife (Mrs. Garland) went back to her house and shamed the Union raiders into sparing the house - thus the President's Mansion still remains today.
So Croxton is the General for raiding Alabama.
|3 days 13 hours ago||I was wondering if Bama did||
Gary's recruiting timeline shows a visit from the Bama coaching staff including one Bo Davis, who has since resigned due to recruiting violations. (He was the #1 recruiter in the SEC ...)
Also, when John U Bacon spoke to the Michigan Triangle Area Club, every time he mentioned cheating (and the Gary statement did come up), he mentioned Bama (which gave a lady in the back row the vapors.)
|6 days 20 hours ago||I know /s, but||
Jesus F Christ and this Trigger Warning shit. I hope I am long retired before this shit makes it into the workforce. It apparently is making its way into the military already.
If they can't deal with interpersonal conflict, what are they going to do when they deal with real conflict?
[edit:] maybe the use of "trigger warning" should be a trigger warning for me ... /s
|1 week 6 days ago||Well the camps typically charge a fee||
and the valued attraction for that fee was some dude named Harbaugh from the state way IP in the cold north named Michigan.
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||You forgot||
Finance and Legal.
|2 weeks 23 hours ago||sometimes there's a drop down||
in the upper right hand corner that allows you to choose "this ad is inappropriate" or "I am not interested". Do that a couple of times and you get un-targeted. (de-targeted?)
Of course that is until you search for something interesting for Mrs. Kass again and get re-targeted.

Had to pay for two subscriptions to be able to watch on two devices simultaneously, and no BTN. I figured out how to go back to TWC for $16 more than two Sling subscriptions by limiting to one set top box and 3 digital adapters. $10 less when I drop sports pass in the off season.
I liked Sling, it just didn't make sense in a multi viewer household.
|3 weeks 20 hours ago||I'm in the was stupid funny back in the day||
but to be avoided now unless inebriated club.
|3 weeks 20 hours ago||That's un-American!||
And in Jim Harbaugh's America we are allowed to work hard AND cross state lines!
|3 weeks 5 days ago||To me, the solid horizon line created this way||
brings back the old bowl "horizon". So I like it.
|4 weeks 11 hours ago||Eh - I sort of get the sentiment||
While last year overall was good - there were some shaky wins along with the fluky State loss - and I too measure success by beating our rivals.
In my view, we're not back (and we shouldn't claim to be) until we can compete with OSU every year, and beat State on a consistent basis: even with injuries.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||When you're back||
you are allowed to have down years now and then.
We are moving in the right direction, but not back; not in any consistent way.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Damn it - when can we vote again?||
We aren't back, until we beat MSU and OSU (and preferably ND or other nationally prominent teams) when they are not having down years.
That hasn't happened in a long time, and it needs to f'ing happen again.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||It's OK now||
LSA fixed it, we can all come out of our safe spaces
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, was thinking we have a new Big Puppy in the making||
But somehow der grosse Welpen doesn't translate in a flattering way.
|7 weeks 12 hours ago||YESSSSS||
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Seth, Seth, Seth !||
Dude, hook us up. I won the family pool on that sucker last year, and I want to pick the restaraunt again.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I think their trolling the Michigan fanbase||
for clicks and viewers
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Technically, Toeing the Line||
is a nautical term which has become an idiomatic expression meaning following the rules. It is based from a naval tradition: when sailors lined up for quarters, they would all line up with their toes along the same seam in the deck planking. (Sailors being less rigid than their Marine brethren needed the visual guide.)
So Space, you probably should have said "getting close to the line" instead.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Me either||
It annoys me I have to click on a link to a you tube video, when the OP could have spelled out Game of Thrones
|8 weeks 3 days ago||But, but, but guys,||
Nike / Jumpman is going to fix all this right?
|9 weeks 9 hours ago||Now, if they would just add it to Sling TV||
and allow multistage, or offer a discounted price for multiple streams in a household, I would be freeeeeee ...
|9 weeks 1 day ago||My son's HS team was so thin at skill||
positions and QB last year, they disallowed tackling of the QB, receivers or runners in practice.
The defense was attrocious last year - never saw so many missed, or broken tackles in all my life. It looked more like attempted dancing than attempted tackling.
It is one thing the practice the steps of heads up tackling on dummies, it is totally another to figure out effective pursuit angles, likely cuts, etc.and then follow through on a tackle of a real live person who is trying to avoid or break free of you.
The Ivys might as well switch to 7 on 7 and be done with it.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||I did my civic duty||
but we're still down by a point
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Hope they do it||
It will increase the intensity of Spring Practice, and will be something remembered in November.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I didn't read this until now||
I ordered Champion stuff from Moe's about 5 minutes after the sale email hit my inbox.
I can't explain why, but probably 90% of my maize and blue wardrobe comes from Moe's. Perhaps mDen feels commercial, and has never been able to capture the authenticity of Moe's.
I'm glad the stewardship continues.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, there is also a difference between being prohibited||
(by the NCAA), and the NCAA doing something about it ...
Clemson and Ole' Miss sudden flip recruits twitter pics with handfuls of money
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Maybe his comment was aimed||
in multiple directions, and he therfore intended to link to the Freep...
|12 weeks 16 hours ago||Yeah, my son just begrudgingly||
Gave up trying to get his friends to do a spring break, and reluctantly decided to come home. They would have opted for a free trip to Florida in a second.
|12 weeks 21 hours ago||I'm not seeing anything in the allegations about bagmen||
Looks like a swim noodle beating to me.
