"Mr. 12-7 Aggie fan"

Most college football teams take overwhelming pride in winning National Championships, Conference Championships, or Bowl Games. Not You? You've got 12-7...
"It's a 5 point win”

Armed with your first win over Texas in 7 years, you can't stop talking about how the tide is turning...
"One in a row"

Most people wait for more than one win in this millennium before proclaiming complete dominance, but not you. You are convinced by one ugly win, you can never again lose to your daddy....

"The nut squeezing makes me dizzy"

So crack open an ice cold can of koolaid, oh sultan of suckage. Because your recruiting classes continue to circle the drain, and you've got Fran for at least 2 more years...
"Mr. 12-7 Aggie faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan"

I don't know: at Miami, at Tech, at Nebraska, at Oklahoma, at Missouri, and with UT being only ranked team played at home I think the Aggies will be hard pressed to get to 8 wins.

No worries at Miami.
****** at Tech
No worries at Nebraska (sorry husker fans blame Diapher for the bad Karma)
Close upset at Oklahoma
at Missouri - tough game but a win (Say 16-9)
Texas - no worries (we got their number........... j/k)

Seriously though, you are right about the schedule for the Aggies. In fact Dave Campbells Texas Football mentioned something similar about not getting any favors there...

Actually, what I'm hearing from most of the Ag fans is quite different: concern about whether Franchione can finally 'get it done' this year. Many still aren't sold on the guy and while there's optimism about the team this year it's still guarded. Why wouldn't it be?

And yes, they think they should beat Texas at CS this year. Why shouldn't they think that - home game and all? After a few relatively weaker opponents to begin they have a difficult road schedule ... at Miami, at OU, at Tech, at Nebraska, at Mizzou... OSU at home will be tough.

If they win the South this year, they will have to earn it. I don't think they will, but I think they will be very competitive...

Those maroon 12 7 inspection stickers expire in December so they will need to do something good by then to carry over into 08.

Their '08 recruit list doen't look too bad at the moment. Ranked 13th by rivals.

No they didn't. Anyone who knows anything about Longhorn football knows that you can't build a dynasty with a freshman QB and Greg Davis as the OC.

You might have heard one Longhorn fan talk about a dynasty, but to say that "all" of them were is pretty ignorant. Not to mention, college football (and pro football) dynasties are just rarities in general nowadays.

The National Championship is one of my all-time highlights as a football fan. Have fun with 12-7.

Well as long as you're going to start tossing out personal insults, stating that I heard just one horn fan speak of dynasty talk is equally, if not more ignorant.

All the horns have been up to this spring/summer is adding to the police blotter report. With the latest DUI charge, I think that makes an even 6 to have been arrested by the Austin P.D. since January.

To speak in terms of broad generalizations is ignorant. If you take that as a personal insult, then that's your problem.

Take a look at the below quote. I qualified my statement with the phrase might have. That makes it a non-generalization.

I will assume you already know the answer, hence your underlying sarcasm, but this year was an off year for the Aggies going into the NFL.

If you look at the bigger picture though, there are just as many, if not more, Aggies who have played in the NFL as the whorns.

oh and never winning anything of consequence. celebrating 5 point victories against a freshman QB-led UT squad like they just won the National Championship.....that is Aggie football alright. Maybe they can have a parade the next time they beat the next community college they schedule.

whatever, while Aggie fan is picking his teeth with hay, polishing his prize pig, and deciding whether to go out with the fat ugly chick from his Political Science class or the fat ugly chick that winked at him from behind a half-eaten bag of Lay's during Yell Practice, the Longhorn faithful will be laughing at your prehistoric institution and all of its 'traditions'. Aggie football is pathetic and the fans that actually buy into it are just as bad.

I think after the beating Cal gave them on National TV A&M should be laying low as possible and hoping McGee learns to throw a football next year.Fran is going to handicap that kid at 25 with the shots i've seen him take.

Of course my favorite A&M memory is the day after a game in Norman, Oklahoma I got to take a paper to my boss(an A&M grad) reading 77-0.I didn't have to say anything. I just smiled.

Of course I know the answer and I think it is ridiculous. I am a Longhorn fan, but I am also a fan for strong Texas teams keeping Texas talent. A weak A&M from either their recruiting evaluations or delevolping players does not help Texas in that regard. A healthy A&M is good for UT in my opinion.

Something Jim Rome said/read on his radio show a while back.

“They won't shut up. They have to go on about spirit, and old army, and red ass, and how bonfire represents the burning sensation they have in their urine to beat UT, and blah blah blah. Shut up. You start to get the feeling the entire school was built to spite UT. Forget the fact that when the Texas Legislature back in the 1870's passed legislation to start a state university they also decided to have a subsidiary branch of the main school (The University of Texas) that would teach agriculture and mechanics. Aggies love to say their school is older, from where they get that I don't know ... the fact is, the State intended A&M to be a branch of UT. They are like the afterbirth from the original creation. Like Danny Devito in Twins. So they apparently have this complex, so much so, that they must devote their entire school to trying to prove to UT that they are just as good. All the while, nobody at UT denies that A&M is a good school, yet they won't shut up. So they write a fight song ... about ... Texas, and how they want to beat them. They have a Fish Camp for freshman where they tell them how bad Texas is and how good A&M and all its traditions are.
It is the world's largest known case of penis envy, and it is manifested in everything A&M does. The people at A&M ... now we all have friends who went to A&M or are at A&M. There are some nice people there. However ... there is the Corp., East Texas' answer to dreams of ROTC kids everywhere. For every boy scout who never learned to stop playing with his GI Joe Toys, there is the Corp. Now, forget the fact that A&M will actually let people with sub-par grades enroll if they agree to join the Corp. Forget the fact that the Corps looked like a Gestapo hate rally while beating down students on Kyle Field in 1995. Forget the fact that along with the numerous hazing charges that have been filed against them, and swept under the rug over the years, they just this past month have had one Corps member bring charges against another Corps member who apparently had been propositioning others for a little actual sodomy. Not only could I go on with more instances of idiocracy by these Khaki-clad-shaven-headed-dorks, I am sure each of you have your own stories.
The point is: We all respect West Point, Annapolis, The Air Force Academy; however, nobody respects the Corp. I imagine they are kind of the laughing stock of the military world. Just because you dress like the Army, and try and act like the Army, does not make you the Army. People at A&M don't even respect these clowns. It is not cool to shave your head and dress up. Halloween is only supposed to be one day of the year. If you want to carry guns and beat up civilians, move to Israel. It is even less cool to slobber on somebody's daughter on national television and call it a tradition. Dry humping 18 year old girls in the stands at football games is not cool. Not only is it not cool, it should be against the law. I know that in College Station, students are just prone to mount each other on the campus lawn, or in the middle of class, or anytime anything good happens you can just grab the girl sitting next to you and start sucking on her face. But everywhere else in the world, it is looked down upon. Especially if you are doing it on my TV. That is why we have moved the game from Thanksgiving. Because people across the nation were gagging on their turkey when in the middle of watching a football game, some boy scout is tongue thrashing some overweight co-ed during somebody's Thanksgiving dinner. We do not need to see burly women engaged in a suckfest every time your woeful offense manages to put points on the board. Some of these girls are in desperate need of a trip to the Clinique counter. Screw that, forget make-up, it is too late for that, just give them a veil.
"t.u." is not funny. It is NOT insulting. It is dumb. Just imagine if folks from Texas kept talking about M&A and giggling. That would not be funny. In fact, it would be retarded. That's why UT fans don't do it. Please learn. You want to lose the image of country bumpkins, of a people fond of sheep, of people that aren't stupid? Then quit building things that fall down. Quit chasing cheerleaders around with swords on national TV. Quit whooping in church. Quit whooping period. Quit putting up scoreboards for the enjoyment of dead mammals. Quit spending your Friday nights practicing how to yell. Quit telling rape jokes to reporters when you're running for Governor. When you are filling out season ticket renewals, and the form asks for your phone #, H & W, quit putting 258-3999, Height 6'3", Weight 185. Just, collectively, stop making asses of yourselves.
Go to East Texas, tour every small town, and ask every red neck with a 5th grade education why they cheer for A&M and wear maroon. That is your fan base. This is why you are perceived by the educated masses as stupid. Nobody cares if you think your band is better. They might be louder, they might march in neat little zig zags, but they have no musical ability. The point is, nobody cares who wins halftime. Quit getting geeked up about marching bands. I find it hard to believe you stood through your high school band's entire halftime performance. And why? Cause nobody cared then and nobody cares now. Plus, you can hear them fine sitting down even if you do care. Why is it cool all of a sudden now that you're in college? Men should never let out high pitched whooping sounds. Perhaps the only justifiable situation in which this can be tolerated is perhaps during an anal probe. Oh wait ... I understand now.
Dogs are not ladies. They don't look or smell like ladies. Dogs eat their own feces and should be treated accordingly.
Finally, College Station is an arm-pit of a town. Quit pretending that it is a great college town. It is a town and there is a college there. That should be the end of this comparison. If you feel that life doesn't get any better than the Dixie Chicken, and enjoy being stuck in a never ending Dukes of Hazard episode, then move there. More importantly, don't move to Austin ... they are trying to create an educated, technological, and open minded population base. Austin is, and will continue to be, the birthplace and final resting place of all that is cool.
As my friend Stephen Johnson once said: "If the world were ever to get an enema, College Station is where you would connect the hose.". If you go to school at A&M, please don't be an Aggie.
God Bless the Great State of Texas." http://msgboard.snopes.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=101;t=000397;p=1

As a Texans fan, I certainly know what it's like to revel in a victory over a hated rival...

We Texans fans certainly drove 19-10 into the ground... you could say that victory over the cowgirls was the only really meaningful victory we've had... there are some similarities between that victory and 12-7... one significant difference, however, is that the Horns don't have to wait four years to put right the world...

As an Ag, I have to agree with A.J. on this one, as long as Francis is our leader, we're doomed to the bottom of the barrel. Haven't cared for the guy since day one. His recruiting lacks, he's quick to lay blame on his coaching staff instead of his own doorstep, and walking away and leaving Alabama in the mess he did are all things that keep me from ever wanting this guy as our head coach. Of course, crowing about a victory over Texas? Always, and forever, things in that department will never change, sorry my Teasip'in Texans fans, but at least we have one thing in common <grin>

Good natured ribbing is one thing but good god.... and what's always been curious to me is that some of the most venemous hate is spewed by people who didn't attend either school. I've got Ags and 'horns in my family and both are obviously great schools.

I've been attending games in Austin and CS since the mid-70's and even though I have had the distinct pleasure of seeing the coach that the stadium is named for patrol the sidelines, and #20 and #10 play at that stadium, I still have to say that over the years, I've enjoyed my overall experience at Kyle Field the most.

My first game at DKR was in '75 or '76. I think it was his last year to coach and Earl was a freshman or sophomore. The late 80's - early 90's were the best at CS but I do remember the Jackie Sherril and Emory Bellard coached teams in the mid-70's. I also had the 'pleasure' of attending the game when the SMU cheerleaders made that famous mistake. Was that 1980? That was the Dicker-James backfield I'm pretty sure.. For some reason, I always remember an A&M - Arkansas game in the late 70's, (Jacob Green's team) mainly because of Lou Holtz' constant pacing on the sidelines between the 40's.

Anyway, a 'sip for a sister doesnt get any worse....

But then again, I would die to protect her... so go figure.

I was not born in Texas, but I did finish high school here. The only reason I decided to go to A&M was because of my girlfriend. At that point less than two years ago, I didn't care about either of the schools.

Obviously, a lot has changed since that time. My experience at A&M has been life changing. Going to a game in Kyle and feeling the spirit of Aggieland throughout the whole stadium was unforgettable. I have fallen in love with the school, the rivalry, and the traditions. Everything means so much to me now. I can't wait to go back in a few weeks.

You can say whatever you want about A&M, I don't mind. I don't mind because I know that you don't know what it feels like. You have no idea what it means to be an Aggie. I feel sorry for those who can never feel it, and encourage those who have the chance to do so. Just being here for one year is an amazing experience.

I'm a Longhorn fan, and I encourage all Ags to celebrate that victory loud and proud...
As a Texans fan, I certainly know what it's like to revel in a victory over a hated rival...

We Texans fans certainly drove 19-10 into the ground... you could say that victory over the cowgirls was the only really meaningful victory we've had... there are some similarities between that victory and 12-7... one significant difference, however, is that the Horns don't have to wait four years to put right the world...

Thank you for pointing this out. This is by far the most intelligent response I have seen in this thread yet.

Why are we not allowed to feel good about beating the horns? As Texans fans, you guys know what it feels like to lose. I know that you guys can at least understand what that game meant to a team that has struggled.

Can it not be compared to beating the Colts? I will never forget that game, when I saw our Texans defeat the Super Bowl Colts. I love the Texans and I will always think about what it meant to finally beat Peyton.

As an Aggie, I will be proud of our squad for taking out the Longhorns. I will be proud that we beat them. We beat the teasips in Austin. We held them to the fewest points of their entire season (OSU as well). I can be proud of that, no matter what you say.

3 women go to Mexico to celebrate their graduation. The women have such a good time that they wake up in jail, awaiting execution.

When asked if they had any last words:
The first girl, a red-head said, “I just graduated from Trinity Bible College and we are taught to forgive people for their sins”. The executioner went to flip the switch on the electric chair, but it failed. Thinking this was a sign from God, the executioner and officers fell to their knees, prayed for forgiveness and released the girl.

The second girl, a brunette was asked if she had any final words. She replied that she “had just graduated from Harvard Law School and that her undying love was for Lady Justice and the Law”. The executioner went to flip the switch on the electric chair, and it again the electric chair failed. And again the executioner and guards fell to their knees.

The last girl (you guessed it) a blonde, stated that she had “just graduated from the University of Texas as an electrical engineer, and that if they just plugged the damn thing in – it would work”. The executioner……….

I am with you on the emboldened words TL13. It felt really good for Texas to just kick the snot out of OU after years of us being their b*tch.

I am sure it felt good to beat the Longhorns, especially in Austin, but just keep it in perspective. Freshman QB and a hurt one at that.

The corner hasn't been turned in Aggieland but it was a positive step in the Fran era, but that just means more Fran. Is that a good thing?

Actually, what I'm hearing from most of the Ag fans is quite different: concern about whether Franchione can finally 'get it done' this year. Many still aren't sold on the guy and while there's optimism about the team this year it's still guarded. Why wouldn't it be?

And yes, they think they should beat Texas at CS this year. Why shouldn't they think that - home game and all? After a few relatively weaker opponents to begin they have a difficult road schedule ... at Miami, at OU, at Tech, at Nebraska, at Mizzou... OSU at home will be tough.

If they win the South this year, they will have to earn it. I don't think they will, but I think they will be very competitive...

Those maroon 12 7 inspection stickers expire in December so they will need to do something good by then to carry over into 08.

Their '08 recruit list doen't look too bad at the moment. Ranked 13th by rivals.

So where are they playing the game this year ? Whipping the horns up into a frenzie is not a wise policy. Swatting them in the nose for twelve months with the 12-7 spin is going to bomb them. And when you guys come crawling out of that smoldering crater just remeber how much fun you had in '07.

Fran should of been gone two seasons ago. The guy can not recruit. Cy Fair is now in Ann Arbor. The guy the Ags need to slay the T.U. dragon just moved to Denton. I have every confidence that befor they realize this the guy will be long gone and under contract at a true contender. halabalue kanuck Kanuck.

as for the offseason plethora of police blotter and failing grades, it is getting old. This last incident is the worst for me. Being involved in a robbery by gunpoint for GAMING EQUIPMENT!!! That is pretty damn pathetic imho.

Mack has done a great job in Austin in respect to accountability and discipline but this offseason he may have to get tougher and stop recruiting some of these wannabe wanksta gangstas and let the Miami's and Ohio State's of the world continue to recruit them.

they have had too many problems of late. what do you want me to say? fire mack? stop recruiting from bad parts of town where they been more exposed to this type of inexcusable behavior? had any of these guys been in trouble in High School? I don't know the answers to the questions but at the end of the day it doesnt matter. Things need to be fixed there and it does start up top. Mack needs to probably lose the 'fair but stern' routine he has been using and he needs to get tough. If Brown would have been kicked off the team in 2006 before the OSU game, would the other incidents been prevented? it's quite possible. He gets negative marks for not getting tough soon enough.

Kids getting drunk and smoking grass isn't that much different from the average university student but when you start saying words like 'robbery' and 'at gunpoint' and 'for video games', and not just isolated incidents by a bad apple but by multiple student-athletes and for similar behavior....and I dont buy the excuse that Austin is a major city and the kids are exposed to more stuff than the average college town. It (the big city excuse) probably doesn't help but suspending a few guys from the team could send a message to prevent this trend....things need to change and fast.

Mack also needs to realize that he owes it to the institution to keep up its image as a football program that does it the right way. this type of stuff is for the OU's, OSU's, and Miamis of the world. It doesn't belong in Austin, College Station, or anywhere. Student athletes with guns is just very chilling especially when you consider the recent tragic events at Virginia Tech. Guns are bad. Period. I said it. It needs to be removed like a cancer.

I'm seeing a pattern myself and I can't say that I'm real fond of it either. Mack Brown's got a reputation for passing over bad character guys at the expense of taking dominant blue-chip prospects.

Now, it'll be a little easier for other Big 12 coaches to play the character card when recruiting prospects. I'm hoping that Hoth-Boy was right further up the thread about it being a bad offseason, but I think that these incidents from this offseason points to a bigger problem with the sport in general.

As a young Aggie, I am a victim to every negative comment made towards A&M. Maybe someday I will be able to overlook them, and maybe even join in on the joke-making. As for right now, an attack on TAMU is an attack on me.

Looking at these:

Wanted to give you more rep but couldn't. This will get forwarded.

I think after the beating Cal gave them on National TV A&M should be laying low as possible and hoping McGee learns to throw a football next year.Fran is going to handicap that kid at 25 with the shots i've seen him take.

Of course my favorite A&M memory is the day after a game in Norman, Oklahoma I got to take a paper to my boss(an A&M grad) reading 77-0.I didn't have to say anything. I just smiled.

yeah like measuring your chances of winning by an outhouse falling is way better and my favorite...gig 'em.

I think a good part of that is which side of the political spectrum you stand on i suppose. Though i do admit for the most part A&M as a whole has a massive inferiority complex.

No matter what I say, you will have something negative to say to me. For all your talk about how Aggie's don't do anything but hate, you seem to have nothing but hatred for me. As an Aggie who is trying to stand the middle ground, I feel somewhat upset by the fact that we are getting such a bad rap whenever Longhorn fans are equally malicious.

In the end, I can't change the way you think, and that's not my intention. I don't lose any sleep over the fact that you are who you are. Sometimes I just wish people would be a little bit less hypocritical.

P.S. - I think you have misunderstood the term "Howdy, Dammit". It has absolutely nothing to do with Texas. If you would like a better explanation, feel free to ask.

Why did you even dignify that with a response???

I apologize. I should take a lesson from Vinny and stop feeding the trolls.

As a young Aggie, I am a victim to every negative comment made towards A&M. Maybe someday I will be able to overlook them, and maybe even join in on the joke-making. As for right now, an attack on TAMU is an attack on me.

I understand your argument against the Saw'ed Off stuff, but I still don't think Howdy, Dammit can be used in your discussion of tact. It just has nothing to do with it. But I guess it really doesn't matter.

Like I said, I understand what you are saying, but there is nothing I can do. You will see things through your eyes and no one else's.

having spent a great deal of time on both campus's. Visiting friends, going to football games, etc. etc. what have you. (Yeah, I've gone to yell practice, and yeah, I've done all the traditions), and I have to say that as a comparison, people at College Station were by and large pricks, where as Austin was a nice, laid back atmosphere. You A & M people are so damn picky about your hats and your grass. In my opinion, you bring a lot of the jokes and attacks on yourselves. Lighten up dudes, live life.

You are speaking of one experience in which you were asked, out of respect for Aggies who have passed on, to remove your hat in the MSC. It is meant to show respect. We have discussed this before. Would you call someone a prick if they asked you to remove your hat during the National Anthem?

SWT, I know you. I know that you are full of generalizations. Let this one go.

several trips. Just stating my opinion of the people there. Not calling every aggie one, but generally speaking, i stand by my statement. Come on down to texas state sometime. When the kid jumped off the waterfall and drowned, we didn't build a monument...we just point and say, hey look, thats where that moron jumped off joe's crab shack and drowned.

I did not insinuate anything. You have made your position perfectly clear. You've worn your intentions on your sleeves for the duration of this quarrel.

It is only inside your head that I look even remotely bad in this situation. You have taken every chance possible to insult my institution, but I have yet to say anything negative about Texas.

I suggest you abstain from argument in this thread, lest it destroy you.

I may have missed the moral of this story, but I really hope that you are not indirectly referring to the Bonfire.

Yeah, I was. I personally think building a giant, huge, totally awesome fire and then getting crushed in the unlit aftermath is a terribly stupid way to go. That was the point i was making. A tragedy is when a small child loses his parents, or a kitty doesn't quite make the other side of the road. Stupidity is when a bunch of college students get trashed, cut down some trees, and try to light a big ass fire, but can't put their engineering heads together to build something structurally sound. And this gets memorialized in your world? In mine its a giant memorial to a big stupid idea, that had really bad execution.

Lucky.... Before you even respond:
a) Consider the source
b) I have said this in other threads, this kid throws out so much garbage just too see what sticks and what doesn't.
c) Has this kid ever made one comment that has had substance?
d) This is the same kid that cried about coughing up blood but was too stupid do anyting about it
e) This is the same kid who is a self proclaimed degenerate gambler...

Point is, before you fly off the handle and actually waste your time in responding - take a minute to feel sorry for him or at least show some apathy. Apparently this is someone who seeks attention (again, see the coughing up blood story). Maybe they were ignored as a child and this is a cry out for help.

You tell me Bill....you've given me positive rep in other threads before, so I assume that to mean you at one point thought something I said had substance. And there is nothing wrong with being a degenerative gambler. I won't dignify the rest of the drivel you spit with any sort of tangible response, except to say, you really don't know me, perhaps you should stop acting like you do.
