D-Day: The Battle of Omaha Beach, Nebraska, 22 March 2015
FRONT COURT MEN, BACK COURT MEN, AND WINGS OF THE JAYHAWK EXPEDITIONARY FORCE,
You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of Jayhawk-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Big 12 Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the WSU war machine, the elimination of Koch and Cessna basketball tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Kansas, and security for ourselves in a free NCAA tournament.
Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely.
But this is the year 2015! Much has happened since the WSU triumphs of 2013 and 2014 against lesser programs than ours. The Big 12 Basketball Nations have inflicted upon the our enemies great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our BAD BALL offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage basketball war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in skill and athleticism of basketball war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting players. The tide has turned! The free men of the basketball world are marching together to Victory!
I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!
Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

I LIKE IKE!!! I’m ready for battle, too. Going to post on Jesse’s blog like it’s the last time I’ll ever have the privilege.
Rock chalk Jayhawk go KU!!!
@jaybate-1.0 Wow jb. I almost got up and gave a salute! Great commentary.
@jaybate-1.0 kick ass!
I don’t want to fly under false colors. Its an adaptation of the speech that Ike gave the troops on the eve of D-Day.
@jaybate-1.0 Ohhh… that’s a remarkable speech and adaptation… thanks for sharing…
