    is calling out Tom Herman personally in recruiting. Seems strange. Particularly in April but I don't know. Your thoughts?

    Are they also talking about they think Texas is afraid to play them? Or that they own the state? Or how they're in the SEC?

    Calling out Herman for what? Is he missing on some recruits?

    Did they mention their odd traditions and doing weird **** like:

    All male, milk man uniformed "yell" leaders that squeeze their testicles.
    Dipping their Sr. rings in Maroon dye.
    Standing during football games.
    Burying dead dogs on campus.
    Association of Former Students.
    A Corp member pulling a sabre on an unarmed SMU cheerleader.

    That's all I can think of at the moment.

    I guess my point here is that it would have been newsworthy if they WEREN'T calling Herman out.

    Don't forget certain parcels of grass (including outside Kyle Field) being "memorials", but no guide to where not to walk.

    However, to the best of my knowledge they did not sneak around in the middle of the night and remove statues after being advised by people not now or ever associated with their school.

    Aggie got Leal, so they are crowing. They are going to be crushed when they go 6-6 this year, but if they are top 10 recruiting class in Feb, they will think they have turned the corner.

    The general tone was that Herman in particular was losing the battle based on their latest recruit. Just though strange that article about Aggie new recruit would credit JIMBO and discredit Herman personally.

    The funniest was that they took the orange flashing lights off the top of the taller buildings required by the feds and replaced them w maroon lights. And got fined by the feds.

    Correct now that I think about it. But strange.

    Flight of the (semen-filled) Pumpkin
    Elephant Walk
    Among others....

    And not a weird tradition, but telling Whataburger that it couldn't open on Texas Ave. across from atm if they used their traditional orange and white company colors. Opened as maroon and white. Probably still is.

    Never been in there to see the interior, but the roof is orange & white.
    What probably makes this palatable is that it’s Tennessee orange (SEC SEC SEC).

    As to the list of disturbing group behavior the humping it thing has always given me the creeps. That type of behavior needs to be in private, behind closed doors. Truck stop restroom doors.

    When will they acknowledge that joining the SEC was not in their best interest...really, what have they gained? Are they really considered a contender?

    No natural rival and probably never will be; no championships in football; did they really think they could successfully compete for titles with Ala, Ga, LSU, Aub, and Fla; maybe some success in track / field and possibly women's basketball....

    They have their stupid cultish traditions and we have ours. Our mascot is a neutered bovine and our band uniforms look like they were designed by the Dom Delouise character in Blazing Saddles.

    Is there anything more stupid than Hex week?

    There was a time when I was young when Aggie was very different and distinctive but now it is just a bigger version of UT out in the woods with ugly buildings and dying traditions

    A&M's move to the SEC was much like the hiring of Fisher - the administration had no clue what was happening. Hell, the AD was touring Europe with a womens team when the decision and announcement were made about the SEC. The Aggies were losing $20 million a year. The athletic department had borrowed $20 million from the university, which was due and no one was stepping up to write a check. They took their share of the Colorado & Nebraska exit fees to help in that effort. Then they convinced themselves that the SEC money would cover it along with the enlargement of the stadium, only to screw with seat assignments and piss off a bunch of season ticket holders.

    If Leal doesn't sign in December all hell is going to break loose (but it could not happen to a better group of whatever they are).

    Okay- that’s funny

    Winning, ladies and gentlemen, cures the “we own this state” BS... I truly feel UT is closer to winning than Aggie. Just looking at the rosters.

    If either school takes off, watch recruits decommitt from the lesser school

    My Crystal Ball says Leal will be a Horn in Dec. My Crystal Ball has never been wrong before. Of course this is my first crystal ball prediction. :hookem:

    The aggy mongrels are only trying to provoke us into playing them in football again. So they say or do moronic crap like calling out Herman, claiming they are the flagship university of Texas, have the most money of any school in Texas, are great because Alabama is in the same conference, and so on. Let them rot over in college station. They are irrelevant.

    They were an all male military school for 80 years and so there were no women to lead their chants. It is one of their odd traditions they value. Like our dressing like drug store cowboys
