This should probably say "any MODERN Longhorn....". It is only the last
few years in which aggeeee envy has begun to fester on the UT campus, though
it still wanes in comparison to the Texas envy that provides a foundation
for the existence of the small agrarian finishing school that is north and
then east of wherever Jay and Eric say it is whose mascot is a suburban
house pet. Once things settle down and we get back to kickin' collie butt
on a regular basis, we'll quit worrying about our neighbors' dogs barking
and resume our rivalry with the REAL traditional power(like ourselves),
Oklahoma.

>I'll even pull for ou when they are playing against a&m.

I'll betcha my old man bleeds the burntest orange of us all and he even
pulls for the aggeeeeeezz over ou. A true University of Texas graduate
should always put the Lone Star State first(or so he says), regardless
if it means pulling for our a. and m. branch. We stand for more than
just a school, we stand for the State of Texas, and that's what
distinguishes us from a. and m. It is also why aggeeeez are so envious.
(well, among other things)

>I watched the tamu-ou game with my Aggie ex last year and loved every moment

I'll bet now that she's seen the light, she never yells "hump it, ags!" ever
again. :-()

>(Yes, I know I get penalized as a Horn for going out with an Aggie)

Yes, and we have our own paddle boy.

>My school didn't need to change its name to fit the times.

You're kidding! You mean they're finally changing it to Texas
State University? It's about time. That "a. and m." thing is so
passe. The okies even figured that out.

Kind of funny that you say that. I used to have a teacher who had played OT
at A$M in the 70s -- started for two years -- and still worships them in that
sickening way Aggies have, but he is of the same philosophy. Texas against the
world? Hardly fair to all those poor schmucks beyond the Red River...

You did get one thing right: going out with an Aggie is EXTREMELY serious! :) I
pulled for OU last year, then slowly realized what a crime I was committing,
especially when I realized that the more games A$M wins, the higher they'll be
ranked on Nov. 5 -- and the higher Texas will be ranked on Nov. 7.

Actually, you were behind to start with by the original scoring, not all
traditions are related to football (Silver Taps -- QED), and said assertion
relating to teaching has not been established by any sources I know of at
this time, so you're SOL, cowboy.

Well, now you have challenged me to reveal my sources, and so I will.
Unfortunately, I don't have the information at hand right now, but as soon
as I retrieve the documents, the Aggies' most closely held secret will come
to light. If you just have a little patience, the whole issue will be
settled. I will then expect a *full* net.public apology.

I was just using a Farmer's system to remove any suspicion that I was

This is the second time this verse has been posted. Does this really
exist? I thought y'all were just making this up but I guess not.

Boy, and this verse says absolutely nothing about UTexas. Now I'm
really feeling insecure. :-(

This 10+ winning streak is really making you guys feel independent. ;-)

Yes, this is the actual first verse to the War Hymn. There has been talk on the
campus in recent years to revive it. However, I would have to guess that a
majority of the student body doesn't even know that it exists. I, for one, would
enjoy singing that verse.

Don't feel insecure yet, Brad. Wait until TCU thrashes you this weekend. :-)

Of course, after November 5th when tu takes out mammoth revenge for the
aforementioned streak, those feelings of independence our sure to cease.



> Brad "go back to rippin' on tu" Glover

Instead of ripping tu, I would like to wish your team all the luck I can in its
upcoming games with okrahoma and colorado as well as in conference. I would like
to see Texas win every game but one every year. I bet you can guess which one,
too.

Of course, now that I think about it, it would be nice to see TCU pickin' cotton
as well.

Well, your list was somewhat incomplete. I'd rather say that the reason why
Michigan and Pepsi State sell out their stadiums consistently has nothing to
do with tradition, as I'm fairly sure that even we have more than they do.
It has to do with the fact that HS football here in Texas in much more popular
than it is up north.

Plus, those teams have much longer stretches of consistent winning football
than either atm or UT. Besides, if tradition made for good attendance, I'd
suspect that atm would sell out all their games, which they don't.

Yes, but then the only part that I've ever really been able to make out would
have to be deleted. That is, unless you want our side to start yelling it.

SOUNDS LIKE HELL!!!

In fact, if y'all did start using the above verse, you know that's what would

I've never heard the okrahoma one before. Pretty funny. Lose every game

Course if we lose to y'all and still go to the Cotton then I know y'all

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

You probably won't see anything interesting in this one, seeing as I won't be
able to make it down to Austin and my TV has been having problems picking up
Aggie games lately. And, after the terrible thrashing that the mighty t-sips are
going to thrust upon us, I will probably just want to the game behind me.

A couple of notes about this thread. This is informational not bait.

1) Every transfer student or incoming freshman is required to attend a
school orientation the semester before enrolling. Actually, they
enroll during their orientation in many cases.
2) Any incoming freshman for a fall semester has the option of paying for
and attending a "Fish Camp" the summer before their enrollment.
This is where the actual brain-washing takes effect. Actually,
its more like a week long party where you make a lot of friends,
and have a head start on the rest of the freshmen who are coming
in blind.

Very few of A&M traditions are based on that small secular school in
the west-central part of the state. Beating tu is our battlecry, not
our life. Their name is in our War Hymm, but not in our school song.
The 12th man had absolutely nothing to do with them. There are
several military traditions that have nothing to do with that other
school, since they know nothing about the military in that bastion
of liberalism.

That is the beauty of it. It is more of a personal curiosity than anything
else. I just want to see how it turns out.

Ok, Bradley, you asked for it:

Hullabaloo, Caneck! Caneck!
Hullabaloo, Caneck! Caneck!

All Hail to dear old Texas A&M,


Rally around Maroon and White,
Good luck to the dear old Texas Aggies,

They are the boys who show the fight,
That good old Aggie spirit thrills us,


And makes us yell and yell and yell;

So let's fight for dear old Texas A&M,

We're going to beat you all to

Which is, Bradley?
