    First Pistol Pete

    Not a big fan of Pistol Pete, but at least your mascot didn't get stabbed in the eye by Jamie Lee Curtis like ours did!

    Wow Gundy... that was the most amazing Kevin Sumlin impersonation I've ever seen! We spot you 14 points, fumble twice, refuse to cover your receivers down field, only tackle #30 after 8.3 yards, and you still lose! I mean, that type of ineptitude really deserves some recognition. How is it...

    Well Pokes, the day has arrived. All the tepid smack talk will end tonight. I'll only post here one more time, either to eat crow or serve it up. In the meantime remember oSu will always have a special place in Aggie history: Red, White, and Blue Out!

    Sad huh? We lost 10 players to the NFL, so it was a rebuilding year. The Bama's and Clemson's of the world can reload but we aren't at that level. As for excuses, the games we have lost have been to better teams. If we lose the bowl game the same reasoning would apply. I wonder if Vegas...

    Texas Bowl vs aTm

    A&M is down to 1 scholarship rb. #2 tailback is a converted QB. Smoke says there's a fire in the locker room. Put your money on oSu moneyline. Going to be a long sad offseason for my Aggies.

    Pipe dream. SEC added A&M to get the state of Texas into the SEC Network subscription footprint. This was worth well over $100 million per year for the conference. Adding Tech doesn't increase that subscription fee revenue. For a school to get added to the SEC there would have to be a net...

    So back to the game. There is a great deal of respect for Gundy's coaching acumen among Aggies. Only the truly kool-aid addled among us believe this to be an easy win. The thing that gives me the most hope is that Mike Elko is really good at scheming a defense to nullify the opponent's...

    I never heard of this while I was at A&M. I only heard about it from rival schools long after I graduated. Don't know if it's true or not, but if so, that would be a Corps thing, not something the general student body engaged in.

    Interesting. I can see that. Mizzou has always felt like a placeholder. Hopefully that'll change in time. They really poisoned the well in the Big12 with the way they lifted their skirts to the B1G, so a return would be pretty humiliating. The SEC has no exit fees though, so they are free to...

    Yeah, bowls ain't what they used to be.

    We have that in common, my friend. SMDH.

    Another conference realignment thead.

    Nebraska and Colorado left before the Longhorn Network was even announced, so that can be it.

    Nebraska might, but Aggies don't. Aggies are pretty split on whether or not to ever play Texas again, but being in a conference with them is a no-go. I don't think any of us would want to trade trips to Tuscaloosa, Baton Rouge, and Auburn for trips to Lubbock, Waco, and Austin.

    Why do you think Aggies expected anyone to believe he wasn't selling autographs? Of course he was. Nobody believed that story, Aggies or otherwise. Unique, without a doubt. That's one of the great things about it. It isn't the same thing you see everywhere else. Go to a game in Norman. Is...

    Another conference realignment thead.

    A few months ago I went to a Longhorn board to pose this question, so I'll pose it here... Who do you blame for the mass exodus of 4 schools from the Big12? On the UT board they were pretty unanimous in their blame. I'm interested to hear y'alls' take.

    Texas Bowl vs aTm

    Welp, y'all just got some good news. Our best defensive player (by far) has declared for the draft and is sitting out the bowl game.

    Hmmm... I would argue A&M's actions have been a net positive for the Big12. By saying no to the PAC16 in 2010, the resulting delay allowed the Big12 to regroup and get UT to stay. Big12 doesn't implode. The media partners agreed to maintain the same payout, which was then divided by 10...

    Mac Engel LOVES bagging on A&M. Great clickbait I suppose. All SEC fans chant SEC at any OOC team they beat. LSU fans chanted it at us when they beat us in the Cotton Bowl. Mac should be kissing A&M's furry beanbag since we're the reason his Alma Mater is in the Big12 in the first place.

    Yeah, it's not accurate. The corps may be weird and cultish, but the general student body isn't. So 3,000 or so are weirdo cultists and the remaining 65,000 aren't. But again, if you view us as weird cult members, wouldn't you be glad we left the conference?

    You were okay with Aggies until we rallied around our Heisman Trophy winning quarterback? WTF? Were Aggies supposed to disown the guy? Sure he is a knucklehead and a drunk, but it's not like he's the only football player with that combo. It's interesting to me that anyone cares that we...
