ANNOUNCEMENT: We have installed a new SHA-256 secure server certificate on our freerepublic.com domain and we have a NEW donate link: https://freerepublic.com/donate/

FR is now more secure than ever! Google, Firefox, et al, were flagging our old SHA-1 secure server as “not secure” even though our certificate was paid-up, still valid, still in force and our secure server was still encrypting our donation transactions as securely as always to the SHA-1 standard. You should see a green “Secure” padlock now when you click on our new donate link and that signifies that your transaction will be encrypted by the newly installed SHA-256 routine. We have a little more work to complete for redirects, etc, but when it’s done, everything on https://freerepublic.com will be served as secure documents.

Donate securely online: Click here to enter your pledge by Credit Card, PayPal or Check! (make it a monthly if you can)

The old SHA-1 secure.freerepublic.com link and server will be phased out and retired. When John finishes with the redirects, the old posts containing the old link will automatically be redirected to the new link.

Thank you very much for your loyal support and for bearing with us!

In today’s sports world 18 years is an eternity. I had no idea he’d been there that long.

At the big schools if you don’t win it all every couple of years, your job isn’t safe.

Hmmm…maybe he’s getting out while the getting is good? Strange for the announcement this time of year—plus this will de-commit signees. Would expected it more right after football season.

Didn’t see that coming.

Thanks Bob for your defense that won us the 1996 National Championship.
