    I'm shocked, absolutely shocked, to be informed by this proud 2002 A$M grad that college football is driven by $$$. (wow, who would have thought.)

    With all the information that has come out the last couple of days, the aggys look foolish, and continue their tradition of being delusional and spewing lies. They could have been in on the TV deal, opted out, then when the deal was nearly done they wanted back in but were told no. So like a pouting child who didn't get the candy, they cry out that they are being treated unfairly.

    Screw 'em!! the lyin' sacks of crap!

    I think the first paragraph is worth reading multiple times. That's what college football is all about.

    does "good natured competition" include the ringers they used in the 1910s, the fedex cash boxes in the 80s, tossing of manure onto the visitors' band, and drawing a saber on a cheerleader??

    aggy paranoia about always having to win, or else cheat or go ballistic or act like morons or run away and pout is well understood in these parts, mr. alumni

    Now it's the televisions fault?! Wow, didn't see that one coming. I guess when your team's games aren't shown on TV much, then it's hard to understand the technology and it's impact.

    Here's a suggestion for aggy. Refuse to put any of your games on TV until you get your way. That will show everyone how committed you are to tradition.

    The Aggies will be better off for leaving most of their traditions behind. Seriously.

    "When we built the 12th Man Productions facilities, our plan was all along to eventually put together an Aggie Network," Byrne wrote a year ago. "We are better positioned than any other conference school to do it."

    The first two words of this tripe are "Texas Aggies ". Wrong! It is Texas Longorns and Texas A&M Aggies. This guy is ashamed of his school's name. Not once have I ever heard Texas Red Raiders, Michigan Spartans, Virginia Hokies, Iowa Cyclones, et. al.

    Get over it aggies. We are Texas. You are Texas A&M.

    Good comments in retort.On the following, I would make it my sig but it's too long. So it's my salute to a program that really has changed it's colors. Or have they? Or should they? Whatever, it is no longer the Texas A&M it once was. For sure.So with Miss State already owning maroon and white in the SEC, it's time for this forward-looking, modern-age bunch of wanna be aggies to shift gears and go pastel and soft and squishy and hold hands with America, for crying out loud!
