I know it seems odd to ask a fan base their opinion of a rival school, but I was already a member here and I was pretty sure you guys (Shaggy) would go all out and give me some examples and facts (you have, good job) that I wasn't getting. Also, I know I've seen a few Aggies on here, and while a couple have posted ITT, none of them have really come out and denied any of these accusations...says a lot.
Best quotes from TexAgs today:

I fully expect us to win the SEC West 3 or 4 times in the first ten years. After that even more.

To improve, you have to play the best.
The best is in the SEC.
Maroon and White always!
You know what's sad, a rational person could easily believe all of this stuff, ALL of it, is fabricated by Longhorns just to smear aggy. This $#@! is so unbelievable that if it wasn't documented and verified people like R&S would scoff and say we were pulling their leg.

...and let me step out of my zone here to prove how BAYLOR--yes, i said BAYLOR--has hotter chicks than aggy:

How dare this thread be hijacked by Texas hotness. We need more
A&M is the 7th largest school in the country located in the middle of Texas - we've got hot women crawling all over the campus; go hang out on sorority row or at the business school, the hottest women of A&M are as good as anywhere in the country. (Now, we might have a bit more rural heft than others at the other end of the spectrum, but just stay away from the ag and life science building.)
It's a tier one research institution with good-to-great academics, faculty and a hell of a lot of beige buildings. We've got a pretty damn unique military history that is at the same time underrated (incredible leadership representation in WWI, WWII, and vietnam), and overrated (the current joke that the corps has become, as might have been shown in a picture or two across this thread).
There's a reason Kyle Field is consistently named one of the best places in the country to watch a game - go enjoy and decide for yourself.
Look, Pescado Rojo and I have worked out the scientific analysis of the attractive women quotient at universities.A&M is the 7th largest school in the country located in the middle of Texas - we've got hot women crawling all over the campus; go hang out on sorority row or at the business school, the hottest women of A&M are as good as anywhere in the country. (Now, we might have a bit more rural heft than others at the other end of the spectrum, but just stay away from the ag and life science building.)
This theory applies to MOST large schools, particularly those in the south, the Pac 16, etc.
When grading their female talent, throw out the top 5 to 10% -- they will be smoking hot. The top 5% at UT is smoking. As is the top 5% at Baylor, LSU, Georgia, USC, Iowa State, and yes, aggy.
Throw out the bottom 5 to 10% -- they'll be a mix of hairy-legged hippies, corn-fed beasts, supernerds, etc.
Grade a school on its middle 80%. THAT'S where the difference is. At UT, the average hotness of the middle 80% is pretty impressive. Ditto at Arizona State, South Carolina, etc. If you walk on campus, you'll find your neck hurting from all the times you turn to watch some gal walk by.
At aggy, Iowa State, etc., the average hotness of the middle 80% is "meh." You'll still turn to watch a few of them, but your neck won't be getting that much of a workout.
It's kind of like a football team -- every team has a couple of stars, and every team has a couple of born benchwarmers. It's the talent of everyone else that makes the team a winner or a loser.
And in both regards, aggy is a loser.
With most schools you can cite one or two weird things but it is something that happened in the past. With A&M you can cite thirty. Twenty of them you can show to somebody today, and ten you can show on a single trip to College Station. Nut squeezing, milkmen cheerleaders, sacred grass, scoreboard for dead dogs and such are there for all to see. And it's not ten kooks that participate. It's hundreds. It's not one guy one time who jizzed in a jar. You can find an Aggie you work with at Ajax Manufacturing who will proudly claim he did it, and then tell you all about brown hats and such.
actually e king gill was standing on the sidelines bugging the $#@! out of future Nebraska and Texas coach Dana Xenophon Bible, who was trying his damnedest to win a game against a little sisters of the poor blind and deaf and cripple school, and the $#@!wad gill was making it difficult. So Bible told gill that he needed his help and to go get on a aggy football costume and go hide under the stands until Bible called him when he needed him. gill did this and miracle of miracles Bible was able to figure out a way to win the game and communicate it to aggy football "players" and lo aggy actually scored more points than their football challenged opponents before time ran out. gill was found three weeks later still hiding under the stands, Bible had forgotten about him, and aggy's second* oldest and second* most revered tradition was begun! whoop! whoop! aaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!
*cheating and paying players is aggy's oldest and most revered tradition.
And I quoted this guy and not the original Aggy response because it summed up my argument better.
Here at the Longhorn camp, we use the word as an expression. It is used to describe the Lady Longhorn!
But he is right where he describes the corps there as overrated and a joke! The sad thing is that they rule the campus and their 'cult like' mentality is what is sending them packing to the SEC... At A&M the 'hotties' on campus are the corp... All male cheerleaders say it all... just sayin'
So many, many things wrong there. But really, let's not forget an easy one -- they SUCK. Seriously, I skipped forward to a dozen of spots in that video to see if I could hear someone -- ANYONE -- carrying a tune. You could put together a better a capella singing group by picking them from a random Texas jury pool.These guys are what Closet Station, Texas is all about.
It's sad enough that they're doing something that reeks of the very gay that they hate so very, very, very much. It's even more pathetic that they can't even do it worth a $#@!.
It is bad enough having Nebraska come up here! and they think Iowa in backwards. Wait until they get a taste of Corn Aggy. As this poor Mich undergrad student did when asking about why Nebraska was kicked out of the AAU.
Read the comments... It becomes very obvious he is shocked by the lack of intelligence from Corn Aggies following an AAU story..
But when the BEVO conspiracy theory comes out he plainly gives up and leaves...
Fun times coming up in football... Aggy in SEC / Corn Aggy in the BIG 10... They are going to think everyone in the BIG 12 is retarded!
I enjoy that the posters who said they were dismissive of the Corps because they play dress up, but then proceed to offer nothing of substance about what the Corps actually does. The same posters generally praise the folks that go into the military, while laughing at those that don't. I don't think you can have it both ways. You'd have to compare A&M officers to generic ROTC officers and come to a conclusion of whether the Corps offers any kind of special sauce that regular ROTC doesn't.
On another point, talk to any Aggie who has gone to boot and fish year. They'll tell you fish year is harder. I can go through tangible examples if you'd like, but I doubt any of you actually care. You guys can call the Corps dress-up, whatever. I learned great life lessons in the Corps that are quite useful to me in the workforce.

Take it for what it's worth, A&M held a private dinner for their top boosters last night. Boosters were told Aggies, OU, Mizz, VaTech to SEC
here's another thing about aggy:
they do a good job of making themselves look like tough guy dumbasses on the internet:
here's aggy telling off a sip and bragging to others online
Messed a Texa$$ whorn up last night
then aggy realizes he was an ASS and comes back with the update:
UPDATE ON MESSED UP A WHORN/FENCE SITUATION

1. Don't yell at people in front of their subordinates
2. When you screw something up "no excuse" is the best answer. Fix it.
3. It can be a lot worse than it is now. No job I've had has been as hard as my freshman year at A&M. That includes teach middle school in Los Angeles.
4. How to give people candid feedback the leads to improvement
5. Building rapport before you give orders
Middle school specific:
1. How to scare the crap out of people with tone
2. How to be consistent and unwavering
3. How not to argue.
My first job out of A&M was Teach for America. I'll be honest, my classroom management was above and beyond most first year teachers specifically because of Corps training. The general management stuff you can get in most any super involved student organization, which at its core that's what the Corps is. The being intimidating stuff most people aren't good at on day 1.
anybody have that picture of the Baylor fan blowing the plastic horn at the two dorks in the aggy band after the Baylor win in Waco?
"The Smoking Man" used to have it, but I can't find him anymore.
One of the all time greats.
As for the hot women comment Bizzle gave. I grew up in SoCal. One of the reasons I chose A&M over the Air Force Academy was the culture shock I had with Texas beauties. Let's be fair here, A&M has a talented co-ed population.
They now have a tradition called "the elephant walk", where the seniors go from bar to bar around their campus in a circle... Like senior elephants used to do, I guess.
I pointed out that the Elephant Walk is traditionally known as a frat hazing thing where dudes walk in a line grabbing the guys junk in front of them while the guy behind them grabs their junk... So maybe they shouldn't embrace the concept so earnestly.
My aggy friends didn't find the connection as funny as I did. I just didn't understand, being from TU
Isn't Elephant Walk where the seniors walk around campus and the juniors get to throw $#@! on them? And by $#@!, I mean eggs, garbage, etc. Am I imagining this?
