    I don't think I've seen a more consistent program. Notice the year after year after year of 7-5 or 8-4 regular season records. I used to joke about them being the best 8-4 team in the country, but they actually average 7-5. It took literally the best player in the history of their program to finally get to 10 wins.

    They've had 12 seasons with 10(+) wins in the history of their program (exactly 1 every 10 years) many of which came in the probation filled Jackie Sherrill era. Mack Brown had 9 consecutive 10 win seasons to put that in perspective.

    '22 3-3 **I'm guessing 7-5 is final record based off historical evidence.
    '21 8-4
    '20 9-1 **Covid
    '19 7-5
    '18 8-4
    '17 7-5
    '16 8-4
    '15 8-4
    '14 7-5
    '13 8-4
    '12 10-2 **JFF
    '11 6-6
    '10 9-3
    '09 6-6
    '08 4-8
    '07 7-5
    '06 9-3 **Colt carted off field
    '05 5-6
    '04 7-4
    '03 4-8

    and yet they wonder why everyone projects them for 7-5/8-4 every year. Delusional.

    It's even better when you list their conference records. They haven't had back to back winning records in conference play since 1999 and 2000! For comparison, the last time Texas had back to back winning records in conference play was 2019 and 2020.

    I must give some credit to the aggy who penned this a while back:
    ___________
    Once upon an evening dreary
    I watched our team look weak and weary.
    Then came a grackle from a distant shore
    Landing on the Kyle Field floor

    He stood there stoic, as if napping
    Sometimes crapping, crapping on the Kyle Field floor.
    "Tis some visitor" I muttered, "crapping on the Kyle Field floor.
    Only this and nothing more."

    Ah, distinctly I remember
    Two whole months before December
    The crystal trophy we adore
    Beyond our grasp forevermore.
    Quoth the grackle, "Nevermore."

    Eagerly, I wished the morrow; vainly I had sought to borrow
    From the playbook surcease of sorrow-something we could use to score
    And renew hope for the trophy we adore
    Absent here forevermore.
    Quoth the grackle, "Nevermore."

    Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating there no longer.
    We were only down a score. Only this and nothing more.
    But then Calzada was cast upon the end zone floor
    And hopes were dashed forevermore.
    Quoth the grackle, "Nevermore."

    And the grackle, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
    On the pallid crust of Kyle Field floor;
    And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
    And the stadium light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
    And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
    Shall be lifted nevermore!
    _______________________
    I know it was written after another aggy loss a while back, but it seems like a good time for a renewal...

    Noticed that the Aggie meat judging team won the national championship.
    Another trophy for the MSC

    Oddly enough, ten of the eleven members of the team are women.

    I always thought most women were very capable of judging meat.
