    Yea, I can understand why they are upset. I would be upset if I had to go to t.u., too.

    This is nothing new. UT's been suing people for years for ripping off their trademarks.

    Not any different than A&M suing the Seahawks over the "12th Man."

    That "Saw 'em Off" crap doesn't bother most Longhorns anyway.

    Yep it is SO much better to go to s&m.
    lol:

    1. You must like being the butt of many jokes.
    2. You enjoy your school operating on significantly less money.
    3. You would rather live in College "Bomb Shelter" Station than Austin, Chris Fowler's favorite college town?
    4. Your school has one great 11 year stretch against Texas (late 80's-early 90's). Subtract those years from the win-loss totals and you couldn't even consider it a real rivalry, well unless you consider Tennessee and Vanderbilt rivals.
    5. You act like you win a National Championship when you finally beat alleged rival seven years after your last victory (those rare wins must be something special).
    6. You enjoy standing all game long instead of relaxing and sipping (hehe) your drink.
    7. You must like waiting for your football championships...as we are one year from Texas' last one, and something like 70 years since s&m's last.

    1. You must like being the butt of many jokes. Actually, yes the jokes can be quite humorous. It's much better being an Aggie and not having Bevo's horns stuck up my a**.
    2. You enjoy your school operating on significantly less money. Please provide a source for your info. Also, if this is one of your qualifications for a great university, then I guess many schools would fall under the weight and dollar of the mighty T.U.
    3. You would rather live in College "Bomb Shelter" Station than Austin, Chris Fowler's favorite college town? No, I prefer spending my time around good ole hick boys named Hank and Jed. Much better than your gay, Austin buddy named Lance.
    4. Your school has one great 11 year stretch against Texas (late 80's-early 90's). Subtract those years from the win-loss totals and you couldn't even consider it a real rivalry, well unless you consider Tennessee and Vanderbilt rivals. I think you're really just upset about the lack of production from your basketball team.
    5. You act like you win a National Championship when you finally beat alleged rival seven years after your last victory (those rare wins must be something special). Yep! 12-7 sure was nice. By the way, how's your boy Colt doin?
    6. You enjoy standing all game long instead of relaxing and sipping (hehe) your drink. It's called passion my friend, and it has Kyle Field rated, year in and year out, as one of the toughest places to play a college football game. When's the last time Darrell K. Royal was on that list?
    7. You must like waiting for your football championships...as we are one year from Texas' last one, and something like 70 years since s&m's last. 1 year, 70 years... It's all the past man. Enjoy it. Revel in it. You got the character guy and the leader in Vince Young. We got the whiney brat with all the talent in Reggie McNeal. But let's not forget how my boys Michael Goodson and Jorvorskie Lane ran all over your number one ranked rushing defense. Gig 'Em Ags!

    Well it's 7:45 on Friday morning,
    He just crawled outta bed.
    He stayed too long at the Chicken again
    And he's got an achin' head.
    He's got an 8-o'clock at Heldenfels
    His prof speaks Japanese.
    Went broke on beer and Mr. Bills
    Now he lives on bread and cheese.

    He's a fightin' Texas Aggie and he just don't give a damn
    That he's got 3 parking tickets
    And he's on sco-pro again
    But the bonfire's built
    And Varsity's horns have been sawed right off his head,
    He's a fightin' Texas Aggie
    And he will be 'til he's dead.

    Well it's Wednesday morning at Gollie Rollie
    His sports pass in his hand
    He's been waitin' three days in the blazin' sun
    Just to be with his twelfth man
    But after fumbles and interceptions
    He takes his girlfriend's hand
    But the game don't mean a thing to her
    She's just there to see the band

    He's a fightin' Texas Aggie and he just don't give a damn
    That he's got 6 parking tickets
    And he's on sco-pro again
    But the bonfire's built
    And Varsity's horns have been sawed right off his head,
    He's a fightin' Texas Aggie
    And he will be 'til he's dead.

    Well he goes down to the Dixie Chicken
    He's dunking his ring tonight
    He's there at 6:30,
    He thought it'd be early
    But there ain't a table in sight
    So he buys his pitcher anyway
    And he drops his ring on in
    Singing, "the road goes on forever
    And the party never ends"!

    He's a fightin' Texas Aggie and he just don't give a damn
    That he's got 9 parking tickets
    And he's on sco-pro again
    But the bonfire's built
    And Varsity's horns have been sawed right off his head,
    He's a fightin' Texas Aggie
    And he will be 'til he's dead.

    Well it's one-o'clock
    And "Goodnight Irene" is blarin' through the place
    He parked about 50 blocks away
    So he ain't got time to waste
    When he finally makes it to his car
    He stands up on his feet
    He says, "Boy's lets head to Taco Cabana,
    I think I need somethin' to eat."

    He's a fightin' Texas Aggie and he just don't give a damn
    That he's got 12 parking tickets
    And he's on sco-pro again
    But the bonfire's built
    And Varsity's horns have been sawed right off his head,
    He's a fightin' Texas Aggie
    And he will be 'til he's dead.

    Well he picks up a "Battalion"
    Just to see what's going on
    But all he finds to read about
    Is what we're doin' wrong
    "This school's too damn conservative!"
    I guess they want us to be
    Like all the hippies down in Austin
    Wearin' orange and sippin' tea.

    He's a fightin' Texas Aggie and he just don't give a damn
    That he's got 12 parking tickets
    And he's on sco-pro again
    But the bonfire's built
    And Varsity's horns have been sawed right off his head,
    He's a fightin' Texas Aggie
    And he will be...'til he's dead.
    Ah-hah!

    Well in that case...

    Since our NC win is "all in the past man" then that means your win this year was "in the past" and you should stop talking about that since we cant brag about bein the champs last year.

    Agreed, they are just schools. Schools are for improving your education/and research, not football. Why have $$$$$$$$$ Football factories to develop talent for our Texans to draft (but they never do). Why don't we have football academies instead, like the baseball academies in Latin America?

    Schools spend an insane amount of money just to play 6 games a year on their field. Turn some of that hate and $$$$$$$$ to solving the crisis in Iraq or curing cancer/aids.

    1. I don't get that...was kind of lame actually. But hey that's what an A&M education gets you.

    2. I am not sure about this one. But i know UT is regularly ranked higher in best colleges to attend lists and best value colleges in the US

    3. I'm not sure you see the complete Irony in that statement. See #1

    4. Umm hate to burst your bubble.....but they've been to a Final four in 2002 i believe and Have players Drafted to the NBA on a yearly basis. Though i admit A&M basketball has grown in leaps and bounds over the past two years.

    5. Once again A&M's AIM is to beat UT. UT is to WIN a NATIONAL TITLE. You act like 12-7 was some sort of...complete one sided victory....if wanted to see one of those i'd recall that 77-0 game A&M put up against OU....that's something to brag about. As for Colt he did fine in putting up impressive numbers in UT's Bowl VICTORY. When's the last time A&M won one of those? The last two have been ugly blowouts. Btw did i mention with that victory UT is the only team in the last 6 years to reach 10 victories? The last time A&M had one was...?

    6. Must be a real tough place to play in as even the home team finds it hard...ags lost some close ones at home this year.

    7. It's called recruiting my friend and who is regularly in 3 recruiting classes year in and out? I've give you a clue out of A&M and UT...it's not A&M. Out of Goodson and Lane having a good game agaisnt my rivalry opponent or a championship. I think I'll take the title. But then again...did you hear about the Aggie that was so excited about winning a gold medal he got it bronzed?

    8. One that that always has had me curious....for such a homophobic school....why do y'all have men cheerleaders?

    Ridiculous cases like this is another reason the reputation of lawyers gets lower and lower each day.

    Haha, companies will be competing to get me, bro. I will know who and where I will work by the time I am a Senior. I will message you back when I have PSL's in the Club section in a few years. Oh yea, and the Head Coach of this team is an Aggie. I guess it's a t.u. thing to be forgetful like that.

    This thread is laughable. teasips are as predictable as they are.... well... we won't be getting into that. This is a family board and such things should not be discussed.

    I just hope the idiotic posters from hornfans and texags do not start contributing to this thread. The moderators will become very busy.
