Jefferson overtakes Madison!

December 9, 2008

http://www.flickr.com/photos/pkeleher/Welcome back to all! After an extended Thanksgiving break, the Jeffersonia Blog has returned!

As we near the end of the season in Founding Fathers Football, there is some exciting news. Thomas Jefferson has overtaken Madison and finally cracks the Top 50! West Monroe now takes over first place with a commanding lead, followed by Hamilton. TJ is in third place, while Madison slips all the way back to 4th. Independence rounds out the Top 5.

In the Christian version of FFF, St. Thomas Aquinas, currently ranked first in the Nation, leads the way, followed closely by St. Ignatius.  St. Bonaventure is a distant third, with Trinity (of KY) and Godby (of FL) rounding out the Top 5.

Madison, Monroe Neck and Neck

November 11, 2008

http://www.flickr.com/photos/seattlemunicipalarchives/This past weekend in Founding Fathers Football, undefeated Madison and West Monroe remain neck and neck (current ranking in HighschoolRivals’ Top 100 is 27th and 28th place, respectively). Hamilton is third (moving up a spot to 32nd). Thomas Jefferson remains fourth (in the 55th spot), with Columbus right behind him (no Columbus was not a Founding Father and is ineligible for the game, but he was respected by TJ and his portrait did hang in the Parlor at Monticello, so there). Independence is last, but scores points for reaching the highly ironic 76th spot (you know – spirit of ’76 and whatnot)! [Note: If we included yearly celebrations, then Centennial would currently be in first place]. An interesting (if sad) sidebar: two Jefferson-named schools were defeated by Top100 teams this week.

For the Christian version of FFF, Trinity (of TX) and St. Thomas Aquinas
are battling it out for first (both in Christian FFF and HighschoolRivals Top 100). St. Ignatius is a close third.
