As It Tries to Bolt the Big 12, The Joke's On Texas A&M (Again)

Jealous and impotent until the bitter end, the Aggies try to flee for the SEC.

There could be an even bigger plan in the works for Texas. DeLoss Dodds, the Longhorns' athletic director, and Jack Swarbrick, the AD at Notre Dame, not long ago came together on a series of four Texas-Notre Dame games, starting in 2015. But they also have done some big-picture daydreaming. With the Irish and their NBC TV network anchoring, they've imagined a new North conference that would include Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Louisville, North Carolina and Pittsburgh. Alongside Texas and its ESPN TV network in the South: Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas Tech, Baylor and Houston.

Didja hear about the Aggie who broke his leg while raking leaves?

Fell right out of the tree.

I don't have a dog in this hunt, but it's maddening that A&M prides itself on honor, tradition and loyalty and sees no way out of this mess other than to bail. The 12th Man. Reveille. The bonfire. Only seniors wearing boots. The band's precision. Hullabaloo, Caneck, Caneck. Whoop! When the Aggies run from Texas like scorned little girls, all their traditions will add up to a load of Bevo's bullshit.

Truth is, the Aggies regret not leaving the Big 12 last summer. They pledged unity, only to watch the Longhorns and their network kick mud into their face for the last time. Leaving the Big 12 is not best for A&M, but the school's inferiority complex runs all the way from white jumpsuited Yell Leaders to AD Bill Byrne and even to Texas governor Rick Perry, who's been pushing the rumor of A&M's departure.

A&M to the SEC-ede? Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

What are the first two lines to Texas A&M's "Aggie War Hymn"?

Good bye to Texas University; So long to the orange and the white.

Actually, that one’s no joke.

Mr Whitt, if you were a little more factual or unbiased, your viewpoint would have been irritating or perhaps offensive.  But as 2012-2104 have proven how ridiculous your article was, you turn out to be worth only a quick grin.  


   50+ years without an Aggie Heisman?  Oops, and a freshman at that!  


     Shaved heads routinely bashed in by SEC competition?  You might want to ask Alabama about that.

     You also might want to get others' opinions as to which school is now in the limelight versus the shadow of the other.


Your article has revealed that you are so stupid that even the Aggies have noticed!

Really tired of the poor reporters who try to tie a current team to any team of the past.  You could argue that the Aggie teams of the 90's were the result of the 10-2 team this year - but you would be wrong.  It's about talent and coaching.  Any team who puts those two together can win tomorrow.  So either reporters are ignorant of that fact or just enjoy trolling for readers.

Well, done....troll!

So much fail

Aggies go 10-2 and produce a Heisman winner.

You are just the crappiest journalist ever after reading this in December of 2012. But thank you for the comedy, truly laughed at just how wrong you were. You get paid to write this garbage? Someone should really take a look at that.

Wow.  You really, really should write a followup article with a generous portion of crow.  We've all had to do it once or twice.  It's good for the soul.
