Happy anniversary, aggy!

 

 

I wonder if @Sbbruin turned off the tv, then turned it back on when the Bruins started making their comeback. 

Also, this is the perfect example of aggy athletics. They choke away leads and out play their opponent for most of the game and still find a way to lose.

One was by a true freshman that probably cost his team a shot at the National Championship, the other by a junior that allowed a 6-7 team to make a historic comeback.  The difference is everything about the two programs.

While the $1,000 aggy "yell leader" challenge still hasn't been claimed, let's have another game, this one just for fun.

Name that year in Texas history:

Memorial Park in Houston was the site of open fighting between armed civilians and U.S. Army forces that lead to the immediate deaths of 20 individuals, and that eventually another 19 individuals would be executed by hanging and over 60 life sentences in federal prison handed down to others. It was the largest collective execution of active duty U.S. military in the nation's history.

This, while the head football coach at the "military academy" some 90 miles away was wearing his Klan robe during evening "excursions into the community" and local Klan rallies were promoted over the public address system during home football games at said "military academy."

Preparations were being finalized for a statue to be dedicated on the grounds of the "military academy" to honor an individual who, while serving a government in a state of war against the United States, murdered people of color to "establish the supremacy of the white man" was known by his admirers as "the gallant Texas negro killer."

What year was it?

I appreciate your aggy takedowns, but this passive aggressive style is tiring. We get it, there was no game in 1907 where that story actually happened. Their own website says "as legend has it" which is about the most self-aware thing I've ever read from anything aggy official, essentially admitting that it is a legend and not necessarily fact. I do find it weird that they can't track down with some certainty the first time a few morons wore janitors outfits and acted like morons considering it has been ongoing for more than 100 years.

The mere fact that a supposedly easy $1,000 is completely unobtainable creates a conundrum is the entire point.

To a college student, $1,000 for answering a trivia question whose answer was taught on the first day of undergrad would seem a reasonable thing to do. Except when that undergrad is an aggy, because that $1,000 represents one of the many, many rewards of life unobtainable because of their aggy-level education.

Those idiots have no interest in preserving their "traditions." Tradition means nothing to an aggy.

What matters to an aggy is promoting the culture they grew up in. That culture being stained to an irreparable degree by ignorance, racism, and poor judgement.

Most of aggy "traditions" are pure lies meant to glorify white, male privilege. That a major university banned the use of children's chalk on campus as a means to communicate about the school's history says a lot of the level of intellectual honesty allowed within their culture.

The people of Texas deserve better than Texas A&M.

Yep. While the aggys were busy building their on-campus shrine to "the gallant Texas negro killer," armed race wars between active duty U.S. Army troops and individuals fighting to deny U.S. citizens their constitutional rights.

It is easy for the rednecks to lie to themselves and claim the Sul Ross statue was meant as an honor to "the Black man's best friend," not as any symbol of the aggy commitment to white supremacy. Meanwhile, just 90 miles away, full blown race riots were breaking out and U.S. Army solders were soon to be hanged by the government for defending the Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic. It is naive to accept the Blacks in Texas at the time didn't see a number of dots that could easily be connected. Or that there might be still more happened over the years that was never taught to people who were taught to refuse to believe such information.

aggys claim they were ordained as a "military academy" pursuant to the Morrill Act. Prairie View was established in the same years and pursuant to the same Morrill Act.

If Sul Ross was "the Black man"s best friend" and a champion of minority education, why didn't Sul Ross (either as governor or as the head administrator of Prairie View) also ensure Prairie View lived up to its obligation to be a "military academy" for blacks? Anyone have the answer to THAT trivia question?

Wasn't Sul Ross derelict (yet again) for not providing the same government-mandated military training for black students at PV as he ensured white students received at A&M?

Correct.  He left to be with his father in his final moments, iirc.

Sure to get a lot of folks in an uproar...

 

 

You may be able to defend testing animals to find cures for humans. I don't object to it in general. One wonders if the Aggies are learning anything.

I think the issue when this came up earlier included the conditions the dogs lived under. Look at that stark cage. The dogs are sick and in pain, but few measures are taken to make their experience a humane as reasonably possible. Instead of improving it, I'm sure A&M refused to admit they'd done anything wrong (see fatally collapsing bonfire) and carry on defiantly.

Feckless on every front.

Over the last seven seasons aggy has wins over:
FCS = 7
SEC (true road games) = 11

During their “magical” 2012 season (11-2), two of those W’s were against FCS teams.

aggy hasn't had a season with 10 wins against FBS teams since the 1990s.

Since aggy had its most recent 10-win (FBS) season, LSU has had 8 such seasons. Texas - 10. OU-16. A&M-0

My aggy friend, who I’ve always considered an almost normal human being, thinks that Patton quote is actually real. Does anyone know the actual origin of that quote? And by anyone, I obviously mean RD.

I would say ask your aggy friend for the first known instance of the quote for the place and date when it was uttered, but aggy is not a fact based culture, so no aggy will ever take the time to find the original quote. 

There is no evidence Patton ever uttered such a phrase, and scholars have given exhaustive reasons why Patton favoring the aggys as a group would have been completely in conflict with Patton’s character. If you read Patton’s wartime speeches, he motivates and builds unity, he doesn’t glorify individual subgroups from one part of the country. He doesn’t seek to create petty jealousies by making one subgroup (other than career West Poniters) seem “more equal” than others. Any why would he? Why would any senior commander? The aggy mentality never considers such matters when fabricating fairy tales. (Like their “stolen howitzer to commit mass murder in Waco” fairy tale. aggys never explain where the ammunition came from or why the military would be storing unsecured live ammunition on a school campus instead of under lock and key at the nearest firing range, which was outside San Antonio)

Trying to prove a negative is problematic, so there is no way to say for sure whether he did or did not say it. Considering no person living or dead has ever been able to identify when it was said or who it was said to, I’m doubting he said it. 

Patton was far more likely to consider aggys the Louisiana shit shovelers he alluded to in his famous speech.

Patton was an arrogant, old money “West Point above all” prick. I can’t imagine he would have heaped praise on the Afghan when he purposely put West Point men in most positions of responsibility in his command. If he thought so much of the aggys, one would think he would have had them on his staff. I don’t thing he ever had an aggy on his staff at any point in his career, so there is no reason to believe he thought of aggys at all, let alone with glowing praise.

Just skimmed a few threads over at Texags, and those fuckers are angry. They are already all lashing out at the black players on the team, and aggy hasnt even started losing yet. Things will get ugly in gomerville this year. They might have to resort to recruiting all white teams again in a couple of years. Mond's first 3 INT half and the wheels will immediately come off.

The shit is going to hit the fan when it is clear to people that the aggy campus white supremacy shrine isn’t coming down and the statue of Matthew Gaines is never going up. They will make a big deal of their token Black freshman that is supposed to represent Sharp’s $100 million scholarship promise, but $100 mil will never be spent by aggys to recruit minorities. White, male rednecks? Sure, but never for Blacks at Texas A&M. 

Kellen Mond fucked up by not listening to the warnings of just how racist aggy culture is. How any minority could ever consider attending that garbage pit of a school escapes me, but I guess Uncle Tom is alive and well.

I don't know how many saw it, but there is one aggy named Sammy at A&M who is the role model the ags expect of all Blacks who attend A&M. Seriously. This individual has been singled out essentially as "a good negro" (to use a term well known on the aggy campus, especially during the Jim crow era).

In all seriousness, this is how they want all blacks to act at Texas A&M.

The people of Texas deserve better than Texas A&M.

In 40 years aggy history and turdition will hail the Latin/Mexican-American/San Antonio's finest warrior Kellen Mond and his ancestors' role in fighting for Texas independence.  Sully will still stand and 90 year old John Sharp will still be spending found money from the needy.
