    OK, this comment was awfully funny: "The biggest thing in Texas is Texas A&M's insecurity"

    The whole A&M scene is equal parts distasteful and sad.

    They loathe/envy Texas so much that their bizarro traditions are built around the longhorns. It is their raison d'Ítre.

    At first I thought it was amusing.

    Then fascinating.

    Then ultimately I decided it was just pathetic.

    Re: aTm has videoboard envy?

    The comments are cute.

    When I lurk at texags (as part of my meltdown thread community service) it seems there are a lot of complaints about ads and the commercialization of their football games, where everything is scripted down to the band and the yell leaders and they have the screen blaring at them constantly during TV timeouts.

    So my guess is that while the screen is bigger than UT's, Aggie is bracing for even more blaring timeout nuisances.

    While we're talking Ags, let's not miss the chance to bring to the forefront the skin crawling homoerotic-Nazi vibe that is, the Corps of Cadets. One stands in slack jawed awe at the sheer number of psychiatric maladies on parade as a group of grown men play army soldier and critique each other's clothes and personal deportment....and the University plays along. Pathetic beyond words.

    The WORST is at Jerry's world! It is in the center of the field, and takes over the game. If I wanted to watch the entire game on TV I would have not bought a ticket. I do enjoy seeing a special play over again on the jumbotron, but not the entire game. The camera cannot see the complete play where every player is positioned, and how the play develops, there is more to watch than just the person that gets the ball. That is why listening to Merv Johnson describe who was successful or busted on a play in the line, etc., that the TV misses.

    Before you get ahead of yourself, you guys are the ones that we expect to upset the SEC threats for the playoff, so we pay attention to you. We don't expect you in playoff contention, but you could play spoiler to some SEC stallwarts that might.

    We've "loved" Arizona State in the early aughts (and been let down many times), "loved" Virginia Tech when Miami had no other competition in the Big East, and have "loved" random SEC programs whenever we can imagine them beating LSU, Alabama, Auburn, Florida, whoever is in the top 5 of the polls at any given moment.

    So go ahead and feel loved resident Aggie but continue to be irrelevant when it's time for the BCS/playoff to begin

    You're a good Ag representative, Mac94. Glad to have you on the board.

    It's also very entertaining to see you can Sic 'Em cat fighting

    Yep.

    That's the sole reason they are expanding their stadium. What was/is funny is that Texas saw that as a challenge, and is looking to expand further, yet they can't sell out the one they have now.

    Yeah, it's been an interesting turn of events down in Baja Oklahoma. Meanwhile, normal Oklahoma is up here sitting back watching the show

    It really is too bad they don't play each other any longer.
    It's kinda like our old rivalry game with Nebraska. Minus the titles and Heismans.

    They really should have just tore that place down and built it from scratch instead of adding to the erector set.

    They can have the title for a couple years, until our new board goes in.

    More choice bits:

    LonghornsUnite!
    Texas goes 9-4, and it's a disappointment. A&M goes 9-4 with their most talented team ever.

    HornsNbr1
    Texas goes 9-4 and the coach gets fired. a&m goes 9-4 and build a bigger stadium.

    Markus Wynne Thiesen
    Is it bigger than their holes on defense?

    Daniel Elliott
    Are they compensating for something

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Right now our new board is just an image on a computer screen. Nothing has been paid for yet.

    Everyone on here is sounding like a bunch of 'horn fans. I guess y'all on here never heard of the old saying "your enemy's enemy is your friend"?
    In all the times OU played at Kyle Field, me and my family were always treated with the utmost respect, every time. Loved those A&M trips every other year.

    I don't know if you are mad at A&M for leaving us behind for a better conference or what the deal is, but all the hating on A&M seems really silly to me.
