The story that every Ag trying to get you to go to school there tells about "someone they know" who happened to be stranded in Mogadishu or United Arab Emirates or some beach in India and was wearing an Aggie shirt. No one spoke English and one lady who seemed friendly, walked up to this ag that they know and handed them a hotel key, a plane ticket and a credit card with an address on it so they would return it, no questions asked. The woman said WHOOP and she walked away.

I heard two variations of this one. One from a summer league basketball coach who had a thing for Tony Barone and one time from a guy from my Sunday School class who was a Freshman in the Corps and came back for homecoming.

LOL @ BRichardson. Remember when he played for the Cowboys?

Never mind that he played college football pretty successfully as a Quarterback, the Ag insisted that Bucky could have played Punter barefoot and gone and jump kicked the returner in the face with the foot that just punted the 83 yarder with 8.2 sec hangtime. Why? Because he was such a good "FOOTBALL player " (emphasis on fake Aggie twang when he grew up in the metroplex....and the word "football") :lol: It was among the funniest BS I have ever heard in my entire life.

How can you pinpoint any one thing, you simply can't.

But this I know, if you are in a business meeting with grads from Stanford, UT, Baylor, Rice, North Texas, SMU, TCU, even OU usually they act normal and are going to be professional and inconspicious.

Put one Aggie in the group, and EVERYBODY just has to know HE IS AN AGGIE.
And how special that makes HIM.

Not sure how that mindset got started and I know there are normal Ag's out there

But, this truth rears its ugly head too often, turning an otherwise enjoyable meeting into an Ag infomercial. :puke:

Apologies to Canada Ag and Michael Ag who seem to be good guys and not the obnoxious Ag.

The whole myth of the Aggie Network cracks me up. Yes, it helps if you are an A&M grad and you get advice or introductions from an old Aggie. No, you are not the only school that does it. Every single school does it.

My business partner is an Aggie. He swears that the Aggie Network is an all-powerful force. Together, we have interviewed about 20 people and hired 8. All are from various schools. The funny thing is that the 2 Ags we hired were largely my decision. My partner did not want to make them an offer, but I changed his mind because I thought they were talented folks (and they've turned out to be just that).

the "Aggie Bar Association" at various law schools.

Because A&M doesn't have a law school, when aggies go to law school, they start their own special aggy club. No other school has a special "club" at law schools - i.e. there is no "Baylor Bar Association" or "UT Bar Association" at SMU, but for some reason there HAS to be an "Aggie Bar Association"

I hope we kick their butts up and down Kyle Field and bring those overall-wearing, falsely-arrogant rednecks back to reality

Funny you mention that. When I was at SMU law a few years back, I got to be friends with an Aggie during my first year. I took his ribbing when they beat us 34-14 in football and again when they beat us in basketball. Then when baseball season rolled around, he started talking major trash about how Casey Fossum and the Fighting Tx Aggie baseball team was going to destroy poor little BU. Well we not only won the series, but we swept them. The next Monday morning, while I was waiting to enter Bloom's Con Law class, the Aggie walked up to me red-faced and (without me saying a single word) absolutely went off about how sorry Baylor was, how pathetic Bu was, etc etc. He was literally yelling. I never hung out with that tool after that.

Augustus got me posting. I lived in Fairfield ( a big Aggie town) during a time when Baylor won more often than not. When A&M won I would get from 6-12 calls within 20 minutes and a lot of whoops the next day. When Baylor won I never called a soul, but people would not speak to me the next day at church. Literally would tell me to not say a word. Funny thing is I never did, but they just figured I would be act like them after a win.

Oh, and the fact that when an Ag became manager where I worked there wasn't a single hiring or promotion made that didn't go to an Ag, (The guy kept his Corps boots on his credenza) and I had to work for a guy who had no earthly idea what my job was or how to support me. Alot of those boys fell by the wayside when an SMU grad came in and cleaned the mess up.

Bonfire was a waste of lumber and bad for the environment.

Aggies have already taken offense to that one, as I knew they would. Never mind that I said nothing about the tragedy or the people that lost their lives.

To clarify: it was a waste of time and wood. Most people have Homecoming bonfires, but the Aggies had to spend weeks making this huge 100-foot tower that they could burn down. I mean, come on!

Didn't that seem kinda over the top to anyone else?

The Last Corps Trip :puke:



It was Judgment Day in Aggieland
And tenseness filled the air;
All knew there was a trip at hand,
But not a soul knew where.

Assembled on the drill field
Was the world-renowned Twelfth Man,
The entire fighting Aggie team
And the famous Aggie Band.

And out in front with Royal Guard
The reviewing party stood;
St. Peter and his angel staff
Were choosing bad from good.

First he surveyed the Aggie team
And in terms of an angel swore,
"By Jove, I do believe I've seen
This gallant group before.

I've seen them play since way back when,
And they've always had the grit;
I've seen 'em lose and I've seen 'em win
But I've never seen 'em quit.

No need for us to tarry here
Deciding upon their fates;
Tis plain as the halo on my head
That they've opened Heaven's gates."

And when the Twelfth Man heard this,
They let out a mighty yell
That echoed clear to Heaven
And shook the gates of Hell.

"And what group is this upon the side,"
St. Peter asked his aide,
"That swelled as if to burst with pride
When we our judgment made?"

"Why, sir, that's the Cadet Corps
That's known both far and wide
For backing up their fighting team
Whether they won lost or tied."

A&M requires EVERYONE attending the game to have a $60 ticket – including infants that don’t take up a seat. BU (and most other ticket offices with common sense) require tickets for children over age 2.

For supposedly being a great engineering school, the older part of the stadium (where we get stuck being seated) is very poorly designed. You are allowed about 12 inches max for your butt (see comment above). How can you be crammed into your seats when you are holding a child that has a ticket?

Also, in the lower section, the rows are at a very gradual incline – if the person in front of you is average height, you almost have to stand to see over them. Of course, you’ll probably have to stand anyway because of all of the freshmen who have their Aggie high school friends sitting with them (who have no problem standing while in the middle of the Baylor section)…but that is another story…

Aggie Band, ad infinitum…

1. In general, they expect you to be respectful of them when they have already been incredibly rude to your band. They make “turning the other cheek” a difficult exercise.

2. They have done essentially the same halftime show for at least 30 years, if not longer.

3. Corollary to #2 – they “might” learn a new song or a new segment to their show in any particular year, but NEVER both.

4. Their whole show is a “follow the leader” drill. The guys in front that carry the bugles (the ones they wave around at the beginning of the show) do not play. They are the leaders and the only members that have to know the show.

5. Aggie Band brings their own sideline markers (in maroon and white, of course) – I guess they can’t be expected to read the yardlines or the markers that are already there.

6. They use whistles during the middle of the music to signal all of the turns and maneuvers so that the leaders will know what to do.

7. The rest of the corps calls them “BQ”s – “band queers”, but heaven forbid that any other school say anything derogatory about them.

8. I don’t know if this is true or an urban legend, but, supposedly, the Rice MOB blew whistles during their performance back in SWC days. See #6 – this totally screwed them up and I heard they actually had to leave the field.

9. Fact: Rice MOB did a show mocking the military style marching in the 70s – I believe at Kyle Field – and had to be escorted/sneaked out of stadium, as the Ags were ready to fight/kill/maim. See #7.

10. When the Aggie Band runs off the field at the end of their show, if they are the first to perform, they will run right towards the other band and try to intimidate them into moving out of their way (when there is plenty of room to avoid you). Kind of a college version of “red rover, red rover”.

11. When I was in BUGWB (late 70s), we were told to keep our hats, instruments, etc. close to us at all times, as the Aggies thought it was “funny” to steal them.

12. Every other band we played (including Texas) would alternate playing music with us during the game and at quarter ends. The Aggie director refused.

13. Related to #12, Aggie Band plays when the other band is playing and will play their school song before or while you are playing yours – regardless of whether or not they are the home team. Etiquette (I know they don’t know the meaning of this word) is that the home team plays first and you wait until they complete the song.

14. Aggie Band and students would yell, curse, and make obscene gestures at the Baylor Band as we were marching into the stadium – would also cut through our ranks. Guess what will happen if you try to cut through the mile long corps parade into the stadium?

15. Aggie Band will continue playing the woodwinds (flutes, clarinets, saxes) if it starts raining during the game - even though the water can damage the instruments and you can't hear them over the brass anyway. I guess they do this to prove how "manly" they are.

Sorry for the long list. I got on a roll remembering how much I hate them.

Aggies love to harass us about:

1. David Koresh/Branch Davidians - when he/they were in the county, not the city of Waco, and certainly had no association with Baylor. Harassing as "fair game" even though people died in this tragedy. Associating Koresh and the cult with Baylor makes as much sense as associating the incident in Hempstead a number of years ago - when over half of their cheerleaders got pregnant - simply because Hempstead is a big Aggie town. Hey, Ray Childress, the #1 Aggie, has a big dealership there, so he must be responsible, right?

2. Patrick Dennehy/Carlton Dodson/Dave Bliss - again, even though someone died in this tragedy. Any time a comment is made about A&M's cheating, the retort is "not as bad as Baylor". Yes, but we acknowledged that things were out of control and self reported our violations. Has A&M ever acknowledged doing anything wrong in any of their scandals?

3. Aggies love to say we are obsessed with them, yet they sing about UT multiple times every game ("saw Varsity's horns off) and criticize other schools in general in "The Spirit of Aggieland" - witness the first line, "Some may boast of prowess bold of the school they think so grand". Instead of focusing on how great their school is, they criticize everybody else.

On the other hand,

1. A&M loves to harass us about our religious hypocrisy and piety, but fail to see the hypocrisy in Coach Fran bailing out on TCU and 'Bama for greener gra$$? And, they can't fathom that he will do the same thing to them if he ever turns the program around?

2. Even with the continual harassment and "kidding" (right, ATM) about Koresh, BDs, Dennehy, etc...., if we say even one word about Bonfire (poorly designed structure, lack of supervision, drinking while building the bonfire, etc. - things that they admitted in their own internal investigation), our comments become bulletin board material. And we can't even state an opinion on their multimillion dollar memorial without being told that "that's our business, stay out of it".

I sense a double standard here. Another reason why I hate them...

Rice vs. Texas A&M
November 17, 1973
Rice Stadium, Houston, TX
(Later known as "The Halftime of Infamy")

Action: Band lines up on north end of field. Called to attention.
Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, presenting the 1973 Marching Owl Band, or MOB -- [pause] the only thing funnier than a good Aggie joke. The MOB is directed by Mr. Bert Roth, with twirlers Janet Breston, Suzan McCorkle, Liz Moy and Karen Blackwell. And, in his last appearance with the MOB today, the person responsible for pulling together the halftime shows this year, Drum Major Bob Hord.
Music: Fanfare

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Announcer: Today the MOB salutes Texas A & M and the Aggie band. So to begin, the band will warm up with a little old-fashioned military marching.
[In German accent] You will enjoy!
Action: Band goosesteps out to old Germanesque march. Stops, marches into chicken leg.
Form: Chicken leg
Announcer: Before we go any further into our halftime festivities, the MOB takes time to pay tribute to Mr. Marvin Zindler. [pause] Yes, you heard correctly - the MOB has formed a large chicken thigh, and Marvin Zindler, (the most hated man in Lagrange) will twirl to that famous greeting "Hello, Dolly."
Action: Band marches into boot to cadence.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Form: Boot
Announcer: The MOB has formed a famous Senior Boot, the greatest thing to happen to Aggieland since the manure spreader. [pause] Aggie freshmen will agree that at the base of every Senior boot is a big heel.
Music: Get It On

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Action: Marches into fire hydrant to cadence.
Form: Fire hydrant
Announcer: The MOB now salutes Reveille, the mascot of the Aggies. This is a little dog with a big responsibility. But even Reveille likes to make that pause that refreshes. [pause] So the MOB has formed a fire hydrant and plays "Oh Where, Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone?"
Music: Oh Where, Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone?
Action: Rice twirler parades with a dog leash:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Action: Band marches into giant T.
Form: T
Announcer: The MOB now salutes the Marching Band from Aggieland by forming their famous marching T. [pause] Watch now as the MOB has it their way.
Action: Band plays bugle call intro to the Aggie War Hymn and transitions into
Music: "Little Wooden Soldier" March
Announcer: There you have it, fans, the band that never sounds retreat. Thank you and goodbye.
Action: Band runs off while trumpets blow "Retreat".
Epilogue: Steve Jackson and Dana Blankenhorn of the Rice Thresher best explain what happened on what has been called "MOB Pearl Harbor Day" and "The Halftime of Infamy":

In response to:
Aggie Band, ad infinitum…

1. In general, they expect you to be respectful of them when they have already been incredibly rude to your band. They make “turning the other cheek” a difficult exercise.
- Yes, this is true, and I don't agree with it. You can say whatever you want to our band
2. They have done essentially the same halftime show for at least 30 years, if not longer.
- If by "same show" you mean starting in the end zone and ending with the block T, then you are right. However, the formations and assignments change every week. Twice in my 4 years as a bandsman, we repeated drills that had been done over 4 years before...that's it.
3. Corollary to #2 – they “might” learn a new song or a new segment to their show in any particular year, but NEVER both.
- True, we mostly play the same songs, but usually stick a new one into part of the drill. Either way, I'd still take it over a band playing selections of Journey.
4. Their whole show is a “follow the leader” drill. The guys in front that carry the bugles (the ones they wave around at the beginning of the show) do not play. They are the leaders and the only members that have to know the show.
- The first couple of drills each year are usually follow the leader, simply to ease the freshmen into the marching and prevent any catastrophes. Other than that, the drills average probably 10-15 individual assignments for each person.
5. Aggie Band brings their own sideline markers (in maroon and white, of course) – I guess they can’t be expected to read the yardlines or the markers that are already there.
- The markers have been done for many many years, and they are actually why you always see the small group of regular cadets on the sidelines. They place the markers and then stand behind them to help sight alignments. Oh yeah, and they aren't maroon and white.
6. They use whistles during the middle of the music to signal all of the turns and maneuvers so that the leaders will know what to do.
- Whistles are used because the band is not staring at a fruitcake conducting on a ladder. Many bands use them if you'd pay attention
7. The rest of the corps calls them “BQ”s – “band queers”, but heaven forbid that any other school say anything derogatory about them.
- Feel free to call me a BQ. The actual origins go back to the 1910's when everyone was Corps Trained (CT) and some were Band Qualified (BQ)
8. I don’t know if this is true or an urban legend, but, supposedly, the Rice MOB blew whistles during their performance back in SWC days. See #6 – this totally screwed them up and I heard they actually had to leave the field.
- Yes, Rice pulled this off in the early 80's. Many have tried since, but none have been successful. There are always whistles in the crowd in Austin
9. Fact: Rice MOB did a show mocking the military style marching in the 70s – I believe at Kyle Field – and had to be escorted/sneaked out of stadium, as the Ags were ready to fight/kill/maim. See #7.
- That one, I've never heard of, but Tech always tries to do lots of straight lines when they play us. My sister and many friends were in that band, and they blame it on a personal vendetta between directors (talk about band nerds). Needless to say, they hate it more than we do.
10. When the Aggie Band runs off the field at the end of their show, if they are the first to perform, they will run right towards the other band and try to intimidate them into moving out of their way (when there is plenty of room to avoid you). Kind of a college version of “red rover, red rover”.
- That is waaay off base. It was never done in my time there, and I have never heard of anything remotely similar to that.
11. When I was in BUGWB (late 70s), we were told to keep our hats, instruments, etc. close to us at all times, as the Aggies thought it was “funny” to steal them.
- I know of one pair of cleats that a buddy took from the OSU sidelines, but as far as between bands, people often knowingly exchange things. Again, not out of the ordinary.
12. Every other band we played (including Texas) would alternate playing music with us during the game and at quarter ends. The Aggie director refused.
- There have definitely been some directors that are jackholes. The current one is perfect proof. Sadly, they don't realize how it reflects on the entire band.
13. Related to #12, Aggie Band plays when the other band is playing and will play their school song before or while you are playing yours – regardless of whether or not they are the home team. Etiquette (I know they don’t know the meaning of this word) is that the home team plays first and you wait until they complete the song.
- More BS. That never happened in my four years, but it was done to us when we played at Pitt.
14. Aggie Band and students would yell, curse, and make obscene gestures at the Baylor Band as we were marching into the stadium – would also cut through our ranks. Guess what will happen if you try to cut through the mile long corps parade into the stadium?
- I haven't witnessed any of that. Laughing, yes, but I can't speak for all 400 of us that were there in my time.
15. Aggie Band will continue playing the woodwinds (flutes, clarinets, saxes) if it starts raining during the game - even though the water can damage the instruments and you can't hear them over the brass anyway. I guess they do this to prove how "manly" they are.
- Only for halftime, before and after, they put them away. What is that, 7-10 minutes they are out? Outside of that, the woodwinds (thankfully) are put away.
Sorry for the long list. I got on a roll remembering how much I hate them.

Aggie Band,

It is a free country - you certainly have the right to refute any of my comments about your band. I do question why you feel the need to come on a Baylor board to defend your honor. I have never visited TexasAgs.com, and don't plan to, either.

I was also in the Baylor Band for 4 years, although admittedly long before 2004. That being said, I have personally experienced everything I wrote on my list and stand behind it. I've also been to numerous Baylor-A&M games over the years and continued to see the same things after I graduated.

I would appreciate it if you would not refer to statements that I made that you don't agree with as "BS". In particular, I can remember dorky, pimply faced skinheads trying to run over girls in the Baylor Band many, many times. Feel free to say "not in my experience", but don't say that my statements are "BS".

Does this remind any of you of a child's response - "I'm right because I'm right, I don't care what you say? If I don't agree with you, you're wrong!"

Ok, so it's my experiences versus you experiences. Obviously this conversation has no future. As for coming over here to "defend my honor", I always check up on Baylorfans during the weeks before we meet in any sport. The fact that you don't visit TexAgs does not make my being here wrong in any way. Sorry to disappoint you.

13. Related to #12, Aggie Band plays when the other band is playing and will play their school song before or while you are playing yours – regardless of whether or not they are the home team. Etiquette (I know they don’t know the meaning of this word) is that the home team plays first and you wait until they complete the song.
- More BS. That never happened in my four years, but it was done to us when we played at Pitt.You have selective memory or are not very observant. I have had season tickets to Baylor games for 10 years and have always sat on the East side; basically between the Baylor band & students and the visiting students & band. And, since I was a freshman at Baylor, I pride myself on never having left a game until after singing Baylor's alma mater after the end of the game. EVERY TIME Baylor plays A&M at Floyd Casey stadium, the "Fightin Texas Aggie Band" strikes up some stupid tune right in the middle of the home crowd singing "That Good Old Baylor Line" after games end. EVERY TIME. And I'm one of the more pro-aggie posters on this board. But I won't deny that obnoxious habit exists.

How about the ridiculous quote attributed to Patton that Ags like to brag about..."I'd take a platoon of Texas A&M Aggies before anyone else" or something to that effect. I have heard at least 5 different ags brag about that one.

if you were at war, wouldn't you want on your side someone crazy enough to pull a sword on an SMU cheerleader?

Good point. What would the insurgents do when they whooped and humped it, saying Fight, Farmers, Fight? Probably surrender. You just don't mess around with the 12th man.

I will agree with that. I was in the band from 1987-1990 and it happened quite often. I won't say it was an absolute, but far too many times to be coincidental.

I'll stand corrected if some militant Ag wants to dispute this, but as of a couple of years ago (at least), TAMU had at least one non-air conditioned dorm - there may be more.

I'd be curious as to how many dorms had been built since the school was a 4-5000 student military school.

Second question, how many times has Kyle Field been renovated in that same time period? I think it used to hold 50-60K, now 80K plus???

Glad to know that the Aggie administration has their priorities in the right place...

From the official Aggie Corps site:
Reveille (http://www.aggiecorps.org/home/about/traditions/reveille/)
You'll find gems like:
"Reveille, the first lady of Aggieland, is the official mascot of Texas A&M University. She is the highest ranking member of the Corps of Cadets, and she is a Five-Star General."

and

"Reveille is the most revered dog on campus. Company E-2 has the privilege of taking care of Reveille. If she is sleeping on a cadet's bed, that cadet must sleep on the floor. Cadets address Reveille as "Miss Rev, ma'am."

Explore the rest of the "Traditions" section for many hours of laughter.

Ok, so it's my experiences versus you experiences. Obviously this conversation has no future.

Actually, Aggie Band, you were doing okay until you started in with the "no way" and "BS" responses. You mentioned some things that I had not thought of previously. Thanks for acknowledging that some of your directors have been jerks, as well as some of the corps members. I did notice that at least two other posters agreed with my comments about the Aggie Band playing when we were playing first.

I still don't buy your argument on the yard markers and need for whistles in the middle of songs, though I understand your reasoning. Please remember that the current vogue of drum and bugle corps style marching (face the sidelines, hardly move, and blast the stands with the brass placed between the 40s) has not always been in vogue. This didn't start until the early 80s -I know that's probably ancient history to you.

All of my HS and most of my college band career utilized more military style marching - straight lines, etc. We never saw the need for people on the sidelines for sight lines (I believe that's the phrase you used) - we used to call it "guiding right" (watching out of the corner of your eye).

As far as using whistles, most bands (including current day BUGWB) use them to start a song, but in the middle to indicate when to start a maneuver? Come on...I don't think the UIL judges would look on that too kindly if it was a competition... but I digress... Seriously, if there are other bands that use them, I'd like to know who they are.

Regarding the "same show", I was in a marching band for 8 years and have observed them for close to 40 years. The shows look very similar to me, and with using primarily the same music year in and year out, the casual fan is going to think they are seeing the same show. Question for you, what are the bugle guys doing in shows where they are not the "leaders"?

I like the military style of marching as much as anybody, but can tell you from personal experience that most of the fans prefer the show tunes and such to the traditional marches - especially when it appears to be the same show year after year.

I have no problem with some traditions - for instance, although they didn't do it at the Samford game, BUGWB traditionally ends every show with "Saints Fight" and the BEARS spell out (and I'll be ticked if they don't do it this year) - they've done this since at least 1973, if not earlier. So, your block T is okay - it's just that EVERYTHING else looks the same year in year out.

By the way, assuming UT still marches this way (haven't seen them in a couple of years), they picked up the hesitation style turns from the Aggie Band. They didn't do those previously. We all got a big laugh out of it when they started doing that - emulating their arch rivals...

I was a young man in HS in Waco when I first started seeing the gangs of pimple faced cadets running about the stadium without regard for old people and little kids that might stand in their way. For some reason I suppose they felt mighty safe as long as there were 10 or 12 of them pushing and shoving their way through the crowds. I made up my mind then that if one ran into me it was going to be a big regret for him and some of his buddies. I attended with some pretty big fellas who could have backed me to the hilt, if I needed it. I never saw any that made me think I would need any help. But, that is when I started despising these geeky aggie cadets. Later, I played football against their football team and tried extra hard on every play to do physical damage to them.

Since adulthood, my attitude hasn't changed much for the cadets, but have found many grads of A&M that were of the general student body to be fine and upstanding citizens. Some are them are as good as gold. Don't judge all of A&M by the actions of the cadets and the rude band behavior.

AggieBand2004

And please don't judge the entire Corps by the actions of a few cadets. I know 95% of y'all would not want us judging Baylor by the actions of many of your students after last year's game.

8083 - Despite the few things that we still disagree on, I'm glad there are still a few people who are level-headed enough to be mature on a message board.

Also, yes I did join in July. I said that I have always checked out BFans to see what was going on...I limited myself to trolling until I saw a conversation that I felt like I could add my thoughts to.

Real Bear,

Of course, you're right that there are some decent Aggies out there. I guess I really dislike them when they get in a group - they just seem to feed off of each other. In a lot of ways, they remind of Rice grads - another school that has more than their share of rude and obnoxious people. When I asked a co-worker a few years ago why so many Rice grads acted like jerks at sporting events, he said "I guess it's to get back at people that beat us up in junior high/middle school!"... I could use the same analogy for a lot of Ags. Anybody that was at the Regional Baseball Tournament at Rice a few years ago knows what I mean - they were unbelievably classless...

Aggie Band, we'll call a truce for now. Long story why I wasn't at the game last year, but I'm sure that several of our kids acted childish after the win. I don't have a problem with them running on to the field or tearing the goal posts down (we have been terrible too long for them not to want to celebrate), but if they talked trash or smarted off to the Aggie fans, that would be wrong.

I'd have to say, though, that most of the people I've come across that were in the corps over the years were a "different breed", to be honest.

I keep coming back to the group mentality. Years ago, I was in dental school for a year - another long story. All of the various schools represented in the class - Baylor, UT, A&M, SMU, etc. - hung together, but the Aggies were different. They would sit together during exams, share answers and otherwise cheat to gain an unfair advantage, destroy your work if you left it alone (generally, things that we had to make out of wax), etc. etc. Everything about them was just to the extreme. Sorry, you're dealing with someone who's had many bad Aggie experiences over the years...I'll try not to judge prematurely, though. Old habits die hard...:)

"Beat the HE!! out of Baylor (or any other school)"

Horse Laugh yell, etc...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I know of no other college/university that does organized yells like these (other than Rice, which has used some pretty strong profanity in organized student body yells - not lead by the cheerleaders, but they don't count). It's rather difficult to explain to your child that he/she shouldn't say "beat the he**" when they hear it 50 times at a "family" event. They also continue yelling this when they are up by 40+ points...

I haven't gotten the question about the "horse laugh" yet, and am not looking forward to hearing it!

You guys sound like a bunch of jealous kids. Instead of talking up your school, you resort to talking down everyone else. My guess is that you wish you were either as good as Texas A&M or you wish that you could at least be in the same class. In either case, you have a ways to go.

[QUOTE=BEAR8083]Aggie Band, ad infinitum…

9. Fact: Rice MOB did a show mocking the military style marching in the 70s – I believe at Kyle Field – and had to be escorted/sneaked out of stadium, as the Ags were ready to fight/kill/maim. See #7.
QUOTE]

I think it was actually at Rice Stadium but I may be wrong. The MOB started goose-stepping like Nazis.

I also seem to recall a story about a fist fight that broke out at Rice Stadium once and the Aggie band started playing the National Anthem so the corps had to come to attention and salute. You guessed it, a member of the MOB started waylaying aggies with a trombone while they were at attention.
