    You guys sound like sissy p**sies. Are you skeered of the Aggies. Who cares what excuses they have when they lose to us. Let's play'em.

    Well ****. I thought I could get that past you. You are one perceptive individual.
    I’m scared and a P. You’re sharp enough to see through what I wrote. You sly little devil.
    Pom poms finally exposed me boys. Pulled the tough guy mask off I’ve been wearing all these years.
    I hang my head in shame and yet feel free for the first time in my life.
    Now back to the Hallmark Channel.
    Thank you

    With regards to ATM and us.....How many times do you have to whip your annoying little brother? Seems like we dominated the series and won the last fight.
    I'd say if they win a NC then they'll have earned the right. People say they left because of UT beating them. But they left because Tech was beating them. That's what they couldn't take.

    No, its about walking into some random convenience store 6 months after a loss to aggy and some douche aggy walking up to me flashing the horns down asking how that 1 point beat down tasted. Also declaring how they are now king of the state. Repeat that once a week for the entire year.

    There is nothing to gain in beating them the other three out of 4 years.

    I wouldn't have able to think fast enough, but it would have been neat to ask him how it felt to have one of the slowest players on the field run for 60 yds to set up the winning field goal.

    As of today beating them does us a world of good. Other than Texas fans and aggies no one cares about the all-time record. How much do you care about Minnesota-Wisconsin all-time record? We haven't been "the Jones's" for over a decade.

    No joke. A year ago or so, up here in the Chicago burbs, I was standing in line at the grocery. Texas shirt on. Typical gomer looking dude with an a$m shirt on walks by. Seemed to go out of his way to walk past me. Sidles up as he walks by and says "Gig em". I about fell over laughing at the guy. People looked at me as if they understood, even living up here.

    I remember how insufferable those fools were when I lived in Texas.

    Also, I am really good friends with an aggie. At his wedding reception, and this 20 years ago, they all broke out into all the swaying and ritualistic chants. My wife, girlfriend at the time, who I had told about all the aggieness and had thought I was embellishing, witnessed it and realized just how loony they are in groups.

    I have also experienced a cult wedding. Hours of my life that I will never get back.

    aggy left Texas for no good reason. They have justified the split in their quantum little minds but so be it. They left; Texas is under no obligation (moral or otherwise) to help them in any fashion (that would include playing them in football).

    I understand your position we don't want to help them at all.
    I'm just interested in the rivalry and I would enjoy beating them. I suppose if they beat us that would help their recruiting and therefore helping them but I'm not worried about that crap I would just like to play them and beat them year after year.

    It's been 10 years since the "wahhh LHN is unfair and SEC SEC SEC" distractions. I think we're almost to the point where kids who were newborn babies when all that was going down will have no reason to doubt that Texas playing Texas A&M in football every year is a good thing.

    I get the arguments of the people who want to stick it to them for leaving, or that it's lose-lose because we're the flagship, etc. But from a pure competition standpoint, it helps recruiting and rivalries and bragging rights and all that intangible stuff that makes HS coaches/players pay attention. No one gives a **** when we end our season against Kansas or whoever.

    Had the EXACT same experience... they were doing some square dance thing, and then swayed for awhile, then back to a dosie do type thing again
    Weird. Really - my son was looking at me like WTH?? I mouthed “told you”, they’re delusional.
    I love traditions- Aggies carry too far had a guy I worked with was an Aggie, he was a good sport but I would always say “hey Phil it’s Tuesday and it’s after 1 PM and it’s above 70°, A&M is playing a night game so doesn’t that mean that You were supposed to square off every corner you go to before proceeding and then clicking your heels three times. And that one of your little traditions that y’all like to do remember it’s Tuesday

    Yep. And not a single one of them is out of step. They do everything like a well oiled cult machine.

    Oklahoma is a rival

    Texas/OU is a rivalry and has been for over 70 years

    aTm is an inconvenience on the schedule.

    Agree. The "we're supposed to beat them" argument is weak. We shouldn't be afraid to play anyone.

    Who has said he is afraid to play them? I didn't.

    The arguments so far consist of: "I don't want to hear aggy taunting me if we lose",
    "if we lose, we'll never hear the end of it", and "if we lose it'll hurt our recruiting"

    That's fear, plain and simple. A turd by any other name would smell as ******.

    Aggies are insufferable either way, and they will eventually win. I think it was noted that may win once every 4 games or so.

    So what? That's kind of the point of CFB. Play your rivals. Enjoy beating them. And if they get lucky and sneak one by you, it makes next year's game even better.

    They ran off like chicken shits. You normally make sense, but on this you're kind of out there, man.

    That is the point. Texas was aggy's rival; ou is Texas' rival.

    Aggy was gum on our shoe for 118 meetings and the war is over. Texas won.
    Their identity is defined by their institutionalized inferiority complex & need for a villain. So let them cling to LSU or Alabama or whomever they stick themselves to so as to define their reason for being. This is a fan base that views finishing 3rd or 4th in the SEC as an upward move and a victory from the same production in the conference they left. I don't have time for these people. None of us do.

    Apparently some people around here do. Maybe they are trolls.

    Revisionist history. Playing--and more importantly beating--aggy was always a big deal. I never heard any UT fan who said they didn't care about winning that game.

    Of course you want Texas to win the game. That's obvious. But when Mack was kicking their ***, it did nothing for Texas in the national perception. Wouldn't now either.

    Not going to convince those who think playing them is a good idea. It's like arguing with...well...aggies.

    Ok. Based on that logic, we should go ahead and cancel the Big 12 schedule as well. Because, outside of ou, there's no benefit to playing the other schools. We're "supposed" to beat them.

    Yeah, that sounds exactly like what I said. Sounds good to me.

    So calling people you disagree with "aggies" is your fall-back position. Got it.
