This is why I love Aggys. They are so fucking stupid. Pissing match about which fake army fucks are more aggy than others. It boggles my mind that some of these idiots play dress up on the weekends and feel it is an honor. In any event, this thread is just funny to read. Fuck aggys.

This is awesome. I had an aggy tell me that he was there years ago & the SMU guy instigated the entire thing & the only reason why the corp turd pulled his sabre was because he didn't want to fall on it & he promptly threw it to the ground, but the photo made it look worse than it really was. Can't wait to email the link to him.

Spikgag got it right

Yes, Greg Hood ran onto the field to get the cheerleaders off the field. He did not have his sabre drawn. He stood over them yelling when one of the cheerleaders grabbed him by the boots and another rich boy cheerleader pushed him down. Hood then got up and pulled his sabre. Actually if anything the SMU cheerleaders assaulted Hood, who in response pulled his sabre(Greg Hood's boot pants which are handmade were torn). He waved it around and Dennis McQueen 82' of the Aggie Band(bugle rank) grabbed him and calmed him down. I was a fish in the Corps when this happened. What isn't reported is that later on in the game several of my buddies from 4th Batt, mostly my fish buddies from my outfit B-2 and several F-2 fish devised a plan to steal the SMU megaphone. One of the stadium guards was even opened the gate for them. They ran out onto the track, and grabbed the megaphone. One of my buddies who just retired from the Army as a lt. Colonel high ported it off the field. Several cheerleaders decided to pursue. What they didn't know was that sever 4th batt fish were waiting. Needless to say, when the cheerleaders came back into Kyle Field, they didn't have the megaphone, and were sporting black eyes, busted lips, and bloody noses. My buddies were back at dorm 5 and presented the megaphone to our C.O. and 1st sgt. I was with a date as all this was going on. The megaphone was eventually returned, all fish involved had to sit two weekends, and for good bull all the B-2 fish sat those weekends with our buddies involved in the incident. We got our Corps brass because we acted as a class.

Oh and the stadium went wild when both these events happened.

Sad thing about all this is now if this would of happened, everyone involved would be kicked out of the Corps.

The class of 83 D-2 fish ran onto the field during the t.u. game and fired their cannon off.

Old Army is dead, that is what is so sad.

Bmtaggie, you aren't a real Aggie if you weren't in the Corps, so STFU!


cool homo story there old man, except for the part where none of it happened.


by God, I think we have found quintessential aggy and the perfect narrative for how all aggy lore is passed from generation to generation.

Apparently, and just before this clip, one of the smu cheerleaders got on all fours behind the aggy and pushed him over. If you look, you will notice that the aggy's pants are already wet before he gets pushed down by the cheerleader in the clip.

I went to the A&M game last year with some friends from both schools. They let everyone onto the field after the game, to take pictures and whatnot. Kids were running around and playing catch. I thought it was a cool atmosphere.

Not sure where this "the field is sacred" stuff came from seeing as how there were hundreds of people hanging out after the game. Or maybe they changed the policy in the last few years?

This is the aggy version of D-Day. Sure, the Rangers took Pointe du Hoc, but the Aggy Corps took the SMU cheerleader's megaphone.

Aggiedom is a mental deficient cult that lies and regularly denies the truth. Who's the dude with the stick and the brown shirt who is thrown on his brain by a cute boy cheerleader-not near as cute as the agro cheerleaders-by the way, isn't the guv a former aggie cheerleader?

Yep, we need to find out the name of that SMU cheerleader. He was ready to whip all kinds of Corps ass. Notice that he immediately made a fist and was prepared to knock the shit out of whoever was grabbing him from behind right as he turns. Looks like he might have realized it was an actual security officer before he let it fly.

From your link:

Gregg Hood. I was sitting on the bottom of the upper deck on the goal line where it happened...right in front of me. SMU cheerleaders violated the stay-off-the-field rule at Kyle to do some handsprings or the like. Hood had been yelling at them all game, and he finally snapped...drew his saber and charged out, ostensibly to scare the jerks.
What's the ag's name? I'd love to see some reporter with cameraman in tow catch up with this weasel in a public place and start grilling him about that incident on live TV.

Oh, and it would be awesome to locate the cheerleader and get him to post about the incident here on the shag. That would be rich.

According to LinkedIn, there is a "Gregory Hood" in Tyler who has aTm connections; nothing from "Gregg Hood" related to aggy but there is a "double G" in Tyler as well who is in real estate.


This is awesome. I had an aggy tell me that he was there years ago & the SMU guy instigated the entire thing & the only reason why the corp turd pulled his sabre was because he didn't want to fall on it & he promptly threw it to the ground, but the photo made it look worse than it really was.

Since there appears to be a few new folks on this thread, some of you may not be aware of this kind of stuff so I'll pass on some info. The CofC typically has about 2,200 enrolled in an average year.

Of this enrollment, about 140 of them are in the ROTC program & take a commission. That means the rest are there primarily to play army.
...It's essentially a frat type program with haircuts & marching. Not to mention ball grabbing in public (some your own, some the guy in front of, behind or next to you).

To get an idea of the hazing & general "grab-assery" that these people undertake simply to get in on the connections that this association affords them, check this out (thanks for some of these pics go to ToY & UTexasClan):

I have - on purpose - exempted from these photos any images that show the same kind of thing that would go on in basic training or @ one of the Service Academies.
But again, for the larger % of participants, being in the Corps of Cadets is something they pay for out of their own pockets & for the simple reason that they want to play army & make connections.

I have met more than a few people who were in the corps but never in the *real* military, yet discuss their "time served" & act as though they were in 'Nam or Iraq.

As part of their Bonfire Stack tradition (one that was so fraught with a "lack of institutional control" that it cost the lives of 12 students), the Corps of Cadets have a "Jizz Jar" that they masturbate into, then place inside of an outhouse that is placed on top of the log stack. This outhouse is named the "t.u. Frat House".

Yes, you read right. They jerk off into a mayo jar & place it on burning pyre of fresh cut pine logs.

The football stadium where the Longhorns play is named "Memorial Stadium" & was first built & dedicated to the memory of Texas grads who had died in WWI; after this, it was re-dedicated to the memory of Texas grads who died in WWII, Korea, Viet Nam & other military engagements have been added through the decades. We have more than a few people here on Shaggy who are former military & are Texas grads or fans of the program & school... but "aggy" acts as though they are the sole reason that the state of Texas didn't ever go communist or get overrun by "Messicans".

That, plus a post I made about 1.5 years ago & I will attempt to dig up & add here, is your basic primer on how "Aggie" became "aggy" & how they do things up on Highway 6.

By the way, there is a phrase you will occasionally see on TexAgs & one that is used by others from "Old Army" that goes "Highway 6 runs both ways". This is sort of aresponse to complaints made about aTm & it means that if you are on campus & don't like the university, you are are free to leave because State Highway 6 refers to the major freeway within the B-CS area... but it's also the fastest way to Blinn Junior College in Brenham.


----------------------------------


Fake Army doesn't actually do anything 'real'...

Case in point: the two photos below show the Guidon (carries the flag which is adorned with streamers which represent awards, battles or conflicts the group has been through in it's history).

REAL Army would have something like "Battle of Chancellorsville" or "Battle of New Market" - VMI, 15 May 1864. VMI cadets fought as an independent unit at the Battle of New Market. As such, VMI is the only military college in the nation that holds this distinction and is therefore the only school authorized to "fix bayonets" during parades & have an actual battle streamer on their Guidon.

Instead, this is what aggy gets:

- 1st place OR Simpson Drill Competition (they march really nice)
- 2nd Place JJ Sanchez Recruiting award (don't know if this is for the most who actually joined the ROTC or the most who were in their "company" overall)
- 2nd Place Commandant’s award (extracurricular involvement)
- 2nd Place Hochmuth Award (military proficiency, i.e. a skill that 90% of them won't ever really need IRL)
- 3rd Place Obstacle Course competition

http://profile.ak.fbcdn.net/hprofile-ak-snc4/hs466.snc4/50312_71243671808_8948_n.jpg

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=71243671808

Or, more likely, this:


You can get more "political" than promotions to general officer (also known as "Flag Officer"). General Officers (Flag Officers) are those in the paygrades of O-7 through O-10. Fewer than one percent of career officers will ever be promoted to Flag Rank.

* O-7 - One Star. Brigadier General. Rear Admiral (Lower Half) in the Navy/Coast Guard
* O-8 - Two Stars. Major General. Rear Admiral (Upper Half) in the Navy/Coast Guard
* O-9 - Three Stars. Lieutenant General. Vice Admiral in the Navy/Coast Guard
* O-10 - Four Stars. General. Admiral in the Navy/Coast Guard

General officers are nominated for promotion by the President of the United States, and confirmed by the Senate. You can't get more "political" than that.

http://usmilitary.about.com/od/promotions/l/blofficerprom.htm

Since there are less than 400 flag officers actively serving now in the Army and Marine corps, it would be interesting to see when those 225 served.

Aggies like to claim all kinds of glory from WWII, but the truth is the country was on a war footing and thousands of men were sent there from all around the country to train -- the population of the university swelled as a result (i.e. they were not all A&M students in the traditional sense).

Or, more likely, this:



Since there are less than 400 flag officers actively serving now in the Army and Marine corps, it would be interesting to see when those 225 served.

Still not as many as a school less than 10% of aTm's size.



Verifiable link or GTFO.

The Corps of both schools are similarly sized. A&M Corp is 1900. VMI Corps is 1500.

A&M commissions 42%, 50% when you include off-campus commissioning. VMI commissions 52%.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_A%26M_University_Corps_of_Cadets
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virginia_Military_Institute

I'm not saying A&M = VMI, but the Corps programs are run similarly, so much so that there is a "cadet exchange" where cadets from A&M, VMI and Citadel spend a semester at the other schools. VMI is more intense because they are not surrounded by so many non-Corps students, so the military experience is diluted. But at both schools (and the other senior military colleges, Citadel, Norwich, NGCSU, Virginia Tech), the ROTC program is 24/7 as opposed to other non-SMC schools' ROTCs.

Of this enrollment, about 140 of them are in the ROTC program & take a commission. That means the rest are there primarily to play army.

Except for the service academies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Service_academy), the Corps, in conjunction with its ROTC affiliates and the Department of Military Science at Texas A&M University, produces more military officers than any other school in the United States (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_of_America).[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_A%26M_University_Corps_of_Cadets#cite_note-Bush_Commencement_Notes-0)

The Academic Certificate in Leadership Studies
The Corps of Cadets may be best known for preparing students for commissions in the military, but more than 50 percent of cadets choose to pursue an Academic Certificate in Leadership Studies and do not join the military.

I am trying to backtrace my info & find where I saw that only 140 took a commission out of about 2,200.

Actually I served in the Army 99-05. I wasn't in any Corps, if that's what you are wrongly assuming. I enlisted - reserves while I was in school with a year and a half active.

BTW even the military isn't 24/7 literally. Plenty of guys lived off-base in Ft. Hood. You go to work, do your job, come home and enjoy your free time like everyone else.

I didn't even go to A&M and most officers can kiss my ass but to act like it's that much different than other SMCs is naive. I lived in and was stationed in Virginia. If you think they don't do gay hazing shit at VMI you are sorely mistaken. You just don't hate them enough to search for the info.

Fake Army doesn't actually do anything 'real'...

Case in point: the two photos below show the Guidon (carries the flag which is adorned with streamers which represent awards, battles or conflicts the group has been through in it's history).

REAL Army would have something like "Battle of Chancellorsville" or "Battle of New Market" - VMI, 15 May 1864. VMI cadets fought as an independent unit at the Battle of New Market. As such, VMI is the only military college in the nation that holds this distinction and is therefore the only school authorized to "fix bayonets" during parades & have an actual battle streamer on their Guidon.

Instead, this is what aggy gets:

- 1st place OR Simpson Drill Competition (they march really nice)
- 2nd Place JJ Sanchez Recruiting award (don't know if this is for the most who actually joined the ROTC or the most who were in their "company" overall)
- 2nd Place Commandant’s award (extracurricular involvement)
- 2nd Place Hochmuth Award (military proficiency, i.e. a skill that 90% of them won't ever really need IRL)
- 3rd Place Obstacle Course competition


Damn, I would have thought they would read something like:
- Battle of the Brazos 1926 (http://www.theeagle.com/am/Five-year-reprieve) - loaded a cannon on a flatcar to take it to Waco and fire on Baylor
- Battle of the Jones Field 2001 (http://blog.mysanantonio.com/aggies/2009/06/mckinney-is-aggies-most-interesting-man/) - Former Rick Perry aid and current A&M Chancellor gets into a fight with other Aggie fans and blames it on Tech. "It was like the Alamo. They were coming over the walls."
- Sabre stand at Kyle Field 1981 - the video in this thread
- Poo Flinger 2007 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOJxUeyhhpQ)

Photos anonymously posted to Richmond Indymedia by “CBC��? appear to depict hazing practices at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI). Cadets are seen strapped to chairs, taped-up, dressed in mock-homosexual costume, and posing with a confederate flag. One cadet is seen apparently being dragged across a bathroom floor.

I always just read the posts but never reply until I came across this one. The SMU cheerleader that had the saber pulled on him is actually a fishing boat captain in Lahaina, Maui. I was on vacation with the family in Maui about 4 years ago and decided to take a deep sea fishing trip. Anyway, I was talking with the captain and he asked where I was from and I said Ft. Worth. He told me he went to school at SMU and played football there until he broke his leg in a car accident on Greenville Avenue in Dallas. He said a friend talked him in to going out for cheerleading. We got to talking about football and the old SWC and the topic came up about how goofy aggies are and he asked me if I had ever seen the photo of the aggie corp guy pulling the sword on the cheerleader. I said yes and he replied "That was me." The story he told was the cheerleaders where warned by the corp not to get on the field. He said they were jumping around and spelling out SMU with their bodies during the game. He said this corp guy kept yelling at them. He said the guy came on to the field and was yelling at one of his buddies. He told me they pulled the old playground trick where you sneak up behind someone and get on fours and the other guy pushes them over. He said they did this to the corp guy and the stadium erupted in laughter which really pissed him off. That is when he got up and kicked at him and drew his sword. That's the story he told. I don't have any reason not to believe him because he gave too many details. I am searching for some photos to try to remember this guys name.

If VMI corps douchebaggery was thrown in our faces as often as what we see from the goons on the Brazos, then I'm sure there would be a catalog of that too.

Texas A&M is definitely an interesting place. I think they'll be alright in another 50 years or so, it's a long road coming from where they came from, culturally that is.



A&M has ridiculous opportunities, in this state with a campus that has unlimited potential for growth.

aggy is pissing that away, just like you'd expect.

And the biggest problem is their inbrededness. When you have numerous graduate programs that are reserved for your own undergraduates, you will never be a great university.

This isn't even remotely complicated, but the morons who run that university continue to allow it.

Another corps tradition I've heard of is "quading" which is where the guy strips down to the whitey's, spreads, and someone pours water from an upper elevation (like a second floor window or something) onto his crotch.

And they call us gay
So they invented water boarding, albeit accidentally. Strange that they have not taken credit for that.

If VMI corps douchebaggery was thrown in our faces as often as what we see from the goons on the Brazos, then I'm sure there would be a catalog of that too.

But what's your point? That cadets in every corps act like jack-booted moronic homos? I will stipulate that the one's in college station do, but I don't think it's true for all. At least not for the ROTC dudes I knew at Texas.

Point was, all the SMCs (Texas isn't one, so your ROTC buddies at Texas don't count) do this shit and there are pictures and stories to go along with them. Yet, nobody else makes a big deal and dedicates numerous posts to the subject. Texas fans, and I haven't really kept up with the fanbase so maybe this is resultant of the fact that A&M's football team is better than Texas's right now, seem slightly obsessed with a group that's just a tiny proportion of the A&M population.

I went to grad school at Virginia, and there are a lot of similarities between UVA/Texas and A&M/Va Tech. Tech is a senior military college like A&M and their Corps does dumb shit too. I don't recall anyone at UVA giving a shit. Texas fans are just coming across plain weird here to an outsider, which is pretty ironic considering the point of this thread.

Personally I don't care what the aggy corp do to each other.....but, never ever have I seen VTech grab their junk (and each others) on national TV, never seen one draw a sword on a cheerleader on TV, etc. If you have, prove it.

My biggest problem with aggy is that they junk grab, quad, do Tra-La-la videos, jack off in a jizz jar and light it on fire, then call US gay. It's a hypocrisy thing you know.

Same general principle as Horns down at every game, doing "Saw Em Off" yell at every game (and at their graduations), players doing Horns down on TV even when they don't play us, making every third post on Texags something about Texas, and then saying they are not obsessed with us. At least if you're gonna be a douchebag, be an honest one.

Like the ref throwing the flag at the Nebraska player kicking at the Fingerblaster, you're missing the bigger picture. What you see here isn't the source of animosity, it's the reaction.

And, FWIW, from the CoC's own website, they commissioned 103 members in 2010, down from an expected 155, out of a population of 1,740. A little short of the 42% referenced in the wiki.

It would be computed as a percentage of graduating seniors, not the overall population. If A&M's Corps is anything like the other Corps, it's bottom heavy as a lot of them drop out after freshman year. *


Twenty-Nine Members of the Corps of Cadets received their commission on Friday, August 13. Texas A&M has three commissioning ceremonies each year in conjunction with commencement in May, August and December. In the May ceremony, the largest each year, 74 were commissioned, bringing the total to 103 for 2010. The December ceremony typically averages around 50, so a total number around 155 for the year is expected. Texas A&M consistently commissions more than any school outside of the military academies.
http://www.aggiecorps.org/latest-news/texas-aam-comissioning-ceremony-held-on-august-13.html

That's some really bad reading comprehension dude.

*Yep, 700 freshman, so 1000 upperclassmen. If there are around 300 seniors and 150ish commission, that's around half.

So if 300 out of 300 seniors received commision, you'd claim a 100% rate? Even though close to 400 freshmen a year and another 100 sophomores and juniors are just washing through, playing soldier? You've got a really skewed view of relevant statistics.

That's how all the SMCs determine their commission stats.

A&M commissioned 155/350 (700 freshman).
VMI commissioned 128/249 (392 freshman).
Citadel commissioned 155/430 (639 freshman)
I don't know Va Tech's numbers but they generally have a high commission rate though their corps is much much smaller than the others.
A&M and likely Va Tech have higher freshman dropout rates because dropouts can remain in school, whereas mandatory participation at VMI and Citadel means they'd have to transfer.

We can test this empirically. These are the subjects of each line of the respective songs:


TEXAS FIGHT AGGIE WAR HYMN:

Texas jibberish
A&M jibberish
Texas Texas
Texas Texas’ colors
Texas A&M
Texas A&M
Texas Texas’ alma mater
Texas Texas’ singing ability
Texas
Texas A&M
Texas jibberish
Texas A&M
Texas
Texas Texas
Texas Texas
Texas
Texas
WHOOP
Texas
Texas
WHOOP



So between the two, one line (7%) of Texas Fight is about A&M while eleven (55%) of the Aggie Warn Hymn is about Texas (this is more notable when one considers that 25% of the song is jibberish and only 20% of the song is about the Aggies).

One of the stadium guards was even opened the gate for them. They ran out onto the track, and grabbed the megaphone. One of my buddies who just retired from the Army as a lt. Colonel high ported it off the field. Several cheerleaders decided to pursue. What they didn't know was that sever 4th batt fish were waiting. Needless to say, when the cheerleaders came back into Kyle Field, they didn't have the megaphone, and were sporting black eyes, busted lips, and bloody noses. My buddies were back at dorm 5 and presented the megaphone to our C.O. and 1st sgt.
So outnumbered cheerleaders are ambushed and assaulted and injured and tard-aggy is proud of itself. Damn - why did I bother graduating from Texas when I could have been a part of that kind of deep moral tradition.

I'm not cursing or calling anybody names so I'm not sure why you think I'm upset. I'm also not sure why disagreeing with you means I must have gone to A&M. And I've never said A&M doesn't do dumb shit or defended the stuff they do. All I pointed out is that A&M is like all senior military colleges that do this type of hazing, to which you guys eloquently responded "They're all faggots then."

Again, as I answered before re Va Tech, nobody at Virginia cares what the 1000 member Corps (out of 29,000 of Va Tech students) does. Nobody is going to save pictures or stories for posterity, nobody is going to try and catch clips from TV and make them into GIFs, nobody is compiling stories - hence you don't hear about them except for a hazing lawsuit every now and then. Therein lies my confusion. If it's just the way of the rivalry here, then fine.

Martellus Bennett doing horns down during an NFL game. Seriously.
http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb133/JamesNJeanne/MartellusBennettdoingHornsDownintheNFL.jpg

Actually, Lane is crazy obsessed. I can't think of a single player in the history of Longhorn sports who would flash another school's handsign, much less make it their own. In fact, what's the A&M handsign anyway? ...other than the horns down... Is it the thumb thing? I ask because I rarely see it and doubt it's actually the school's handsign. Nope, I'm pretty sure Porks is throwing the real A&M sign.
http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb133/JamesNJeanne/JTrainHornsDown.jpg

He's not the only one, obviously. Here are some players in the lockerroom flashing their school's handsign.
http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb133/JamesNJeanne/l_3ce64c10102e441f1cc4b9d5c3ddbb3b.jpg

B/CS's economy it damn near predicated on the sale and merchandising of Longhorn-derived paraphernalia. Having lived in Austin for about a decade now I can honestly say that I have NEVER seen a t-shirt that derided aTm. I have never seen a sticker on a car that did so either. (OU, that's another matter. I have seen an OU sticker once.)
http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb133/JamesNJeanne/16l1w1lb.gif

And do you know what happens when obsession comes to define how you run your athletic program? Or when the need to beat a single opponent consumes you to the point you'll do anything to make it happen? Have you seen what that looks like? Here, this is what it looks like:
http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb133/JamesNJeanne/NCAAviolations.jpg
The years that accounted for the majority of aTm's infractions occurred during the late 80's and early 90's when they did nothing of national importance, didn't finish in the top 5, and of course, did not win a National Championship. But still they regard these years as their golden era. Why? Because they beat Texas.

Their obsession defines them.

Point was, all the SMCs (Texas isn't one, so your ROTC buddies at Texas don't count) do this shit and there are pictures and stories to go along with them. Yet, nobody else makes a big deal and dedicates numerous posts to the subject. Texas fans, and I haven't really kept up with the fanbase so maybe this is resultant of the fact that A&M's football team is better than Texas's right now, seem slightly obsessed with a group that's just a tiny proportion of the A&M population.

I went to grad school at Virginia, and there are a lot of similarities between UVA/Texas and A&M/Va Tech. Tech is a senior military college like A&M and their Corps does dumb shit too. I don't recall anyone at UVA giving a shit. Texas fans are just coming across plain weird here to an outsider, which is pretty ironic considering the point of this thread.

So now your premise is that Texas fans come across as "weird" to the rest of the nation for highlighting some of bizarre antics of the aggy kiddie corp? Antics which they themselves describe as incapable of being understood "from the outside looking in" ?

That cadets in every corps act like jack-booted moronic homos?

The cadets at the REAL military school in Texas do not act like jack-booted moronic homos, I know this for a fact. I also know that this school's cadets are not a laughing stock like the baboons in College Station. I know of two graduates of this school who held high rank in the cadet corps at this school both went to aggy after graduation and were appalled at the bullshit that passed for military decorum at aggy after having been in a real military school and thus having seen how a REAL military school is run. A fucking joke is how they described aggy corpse to my son.

I would be willing to bet that if you pitted the cadet corps of this school against the corps of aggy in a war game, this school's corps in the long tradition of the branch of the armed forces that it is part of would whip aggy ass eight ways from sunday.

ps this school is though of so highly by the branch of service that sponsors it, that this school has on it's grounds the original of a certain sculpture that sits in Arlington Virginia.

Look, I agree that there are some similarities in the SMC's. But what you don't -realize / are late to the party on- is that so much of aTm's culture & perceived relevance is for them to be the foil to Texas' identity. Texas didn't ask for it, aggy created it. It's as if they want to be the straight man in this arrangement.

Something else you don't understand is that with the hard core CofC folks, the "Keeper of the Tradition" types, if someone does something 1x & it works kind of OK then it's simply kind of OK. If it kind of works 2x then apparently it's a tradition. I imagine that's how the whole "ring dunk" thing happened; someone was probably showing off their class ring to a Pisshead or Serge, it likely fell into a mug of beer by accident, & I'm surmising the CT fished it out with his teeth after drinking down the remaining 1/4 of their glass. "walla"... TRADITION!!! & Apparently it's something that "On the outside, you wouldn't ever understand 'cause from the inside I'm not smart enough to explain it!!"

If the school didn't want to have the CofC as their overreaching identity, then they would try to push them down a bit, keep it under control. But they don't. You make VPI to Wahoo comparisons a lot, but remember that VPI has two student bands. It allows them to make a distinction & in some ways, this kind of keeps the identities in check (not in this one way, but in a lot of others as well).

In reference to those from the CofC who don't commission, let's try to use an NCAA graduation standard. If by these standards (a 6 year window), if someone enters the program & then departs & doesn't graduate (similar to entering the CofC & then doesn't continue after the 1st year or even enter service) then that could be considered a failure. I have no idea if aTm keeps stats on what someone does after leaving the CofC & how many of these are "washes" vs. "voluntaries".


Here's the thing. I might visit a planetarium & learn something, but that doesn't qualify me to say I'm an astrophysicist or take over NASA. Same can be said for the vast # of people (more than 50%) of people who enter "The Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_A%26M_University)" but carry on like they were locked deep in the jungles of 'Nam or were on a crashed helo in Mogadishu (BTW, for folks who pride themselves on tradition this old name for aTm is often swept under the table).

I imagine that 90% of us here who are opposing you on this thread would have a LOT more respect for these knuckleheads if it was mandatory to take a commission if you enter the aTm CofC. For the life of me, I can't imagine going through all that bullshit under the advertised guise of "leadership". There are a lot of other things a person can do for "leadership" training that has nothing to do with wearing pseudo Boy Scout uniforms & having ice water dumped on me from a 3rd floor elevation or fondling the testicles of other guys (or my own but on national TV).

A small sampling of what obsession looks like:

A&M players doing the horns down after beating Fresno State.
http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb133/JamesNJeanne/OvertimewinvsFresnoState.jpg

Martellus Bennett (Alief Taylor High School) doing horns down during an NFL game. Seriously.
http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb133/JamesNJeanne/MartellusBennettdoingHornsDownintheNFL.jpg

Actually, Lane is crazy obsessed. I can't think of a single player in the history of Longhorn sports who would flash another school's handsign, much less make it their own. In fact, what's the A&M handsign anyway? ...other than the horns down... Is it the thumb thing? I ask because I rarely see it and doubt it's actually the school's handsign. Nope, I'm pretty sure Porks is throwing the real A&M sign.
http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb133/JamesNJeanne/JTrainHornsDown.jpg

He's not the only one, obviously. Here are some players in the lockerroom flashing their school's handsign.
http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb133/JamesNJeanne/l_3ce64c10102e441f1cc4b9d5c3ddbb3b.jpg

B/CS's economy it damn near predicated on the sale and merchandising of Longhorn-derived paraphernalia. Having lived in Austin for about a decade now I can honestly say that I have NEVER seen a t-shirt that derided aTm. I have never seen a sticker on a car that did so either. (OU, that's another matter. I have seen an OU sticker once.)
http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb133/JamesNJeanne/16l1w1lb.gif

And do you know what happens when obsession comes to define how you run your athletic program? Or when the need to beat a single opponent consumes you to the point you'll do anything to make it happen? Have you seen what that looks like? Here, this is what it looks like:
http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb133/JamesNJeanne/NCAAviolations.jpg
The years that accounted for the majority of aTm's infractions occurred during the late 80's and early 90's when they did nothing of national importance, didn't finish in the top 5, and of course, did not win a National Championship. But still they regard these years as their golden era. Why? Because they beat Texas.

Their obsession defines them.

what about warrant officers?IMO, warrant officers are the tits. They're the cream of the crop. They're actually few & far between in my branch of the svc. CWOs fall in between enlisted/commissioned ranks. They're selected from enlisted ranks. All enlisted personnel salute & fall under CWOs, even a 30 years in svc Sgt Maj. However, even a senior chief warrant officer with 25 yrs of svc salutes a 22 year old 2nd Lieutenant with 1 day time in service. Warrant Officers, in the Marine Corps, possess special skills related to combat arms, typically. Many receive a bachelors deg while on active duty, but don't push thru to The Basic School or OCS for whatever reason. It's the most intense selection process I'm aware of to become a CWO. They're highly skilled & generally not ones to be fucked with.

got in to a&m and ut schools of engineering as an out of state applicant (from the northwest). chose a&m because i'm more of a small town kid (not that i had any intention of living in cs when i graduate...F that), and if there's 3 things i hate, it's traffic, pretentious hipsters, and homeless people w/o shelters, so as great as austin is (and it IS), it just wasn't for me.

i won't even try to defend the corps. i've been around the military my entire life (navy brat) and have the upmost respect for our nation's soldiers, so naturally my parents and i thought i should try the corps experience. flew down for a couple days as a junior in hs and spent time with one of the "battalions". i missed the normal "spend a day with the corps" package, so everything i did with them was unplanned [read: they didn't script what i saw and didn't see]. i wanted absolutely nothing to do with them within half an hour. at 17, i could have kicked 95% of their boney asses. it certainly wasn't the military i was used to. but hey, i got the distinct priviledge of gathering the night's porn stack for the company (apparently a high honor usually saved for high ranking cadets). makes me feel bad for the handful of corps guys who take potentially serving their country seriously to have to be surrounded by the jergoffs.

i have no regrets going to a&m. i had 5 great years and had the pick of the litter of jobs in a shitty economy--which is why i currently live on the beach--despite having a piss poor gpa from drinking myself stupid, so how can i complain?

but i'd describe being an aggie as being a christian. the majority of 'em are completely normal people (and if you can't find a group of normal, cool people out of 40,000 to hang out with, you're probably a loser and should look into a frat), but they get overshadowed and outspoken by the vocal extremist minority that follows every tradition to the letter it's written (much like some do with the bible) and feel it's their duty in life to scream at you to take off your hat every six seconds we do a yell at a game or hiss at the word austin. 90% of the corps fits that description.

now someone tell me to GTFO and STHU so i feel like a real aggy

got in to a&m and ut schools of engineering as an out of state applicant (from the northwest). chose a&m because i'm more of a small town kid (not that i had any intention of living in cs when i graduate...F that), and if there's 3 things i hate, it's traffic, pretentious hipsters, and homeless people w/o shelters, so as great as austin is (and it IS), it just wasn't for me.

i won't even try to defend the corps. i've been around the military my entire life (navy brat) and have the upmost respect for our nation's soldiers, so naturally my parents and i thought i should try the corps experience. flew down for a couple days as a junior in hs and spent time with one of the "battalions". i missed the normal "spend a day with the corps" package, so everything i did with them was unplanned [read: they didn't script what i saw and didn't see]. i wanted absolutely nothing to do with them within half an hour. at 17, i could have kicked 95% of their boney asses. it certainly wasn't the military i was used to. but hey, i got the distinct priviledge of gathering the night's porn stack for the company (apparently a high honor usually saved for high ranking cadets). makes me feel bad for the handful of corps guys who take potentially serving their country seriously to have to be surrounded by the jergoffs.

i have no regrets going to a&m. i had 5 great years and had the pick of the litter of jobs in a shitty economy--which is why i currently live on the beach--despite having a piss poor gpa from drinking myself stupid, so how can i complain?

but i'd describe being an aggie as being a christian. the majority of 'em are completely normal people (and if you can't find a group of normal, cool people out of 40,000 to hang out with, you're probably a loser and should look into a frat), but they get overshadowed and outspoken by the vocal extremist minority that follows every tradition to the letter it's written (much like some do with the bible) and feel it's their duty in life to scream at you to take off your hat every six seconds we do a yell at a game or hiss at the word austin. 90% of the corps fits that description.

now someone tell me to GTFO and STHU so i feel like a real aggy

IMO, warrant officers are the tits. They're the cream of the crop. They're actually few & far between in my branch of the svc. CWOs fall in between enlisted/commissioned ranks. They're selected from enlisted ranks. All enlisted personnel salute & fall under CWOs, even a 30 years in svc Sgt Maj. However, even a senior chief warrant officer with 25 yrs of svc salutes a 22 year old 2nd Lieutenant with 1 day time in service. Warrant Officers, in the Marine Corps, possess special skills related to combat arms, typically. Many receive a bachelors deg while on active duty, but don't push thru to The Basic School or OCS for whatever reason. It's the most intense selection process I'm aware of to become a CWO. They're highly skilled & generally not ones to be fucked with.

that's very cool to hear, my Dad spent his first tour in Viet Nam as a warrant officer in the Air Cav.....was commissioned and returned two more times as a lieutenant.

I appreciate it, he never explained what that meant to me.

Warrant Officers are appointed to the rank of WO1. Warrant Officers 2/3/4/5 are commissioned by the President of the United States (http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Do_you_salute_warrant_officers#) the same as traditional commissioned officers. Do you salute them? Well, yes & no.

1) If you are an enlisted soldier: Yes, E-1 to E-9 salute all officers.
2) Warrant officers salute other warrant officers who are of a senior rank.
3) Officers in the grades of O-1 to O-10 do not salute warrant officers as they are all senior in rank to a warrant officer. Officers in the O grades salute someone who is senior to themselves, regardless of branch.






Here's the thing. I might visit a planetarium & learn something, but that doesn't qualify me to say I'm an astrophysicist or take over NASA. Same can be said for the vast # of people (more than 50%) of people who enter "The Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_A%26M_University)" but carry on like they were locked deep in the jungles of 'Nam or were on a crashed helo in Mogadishu
what the fuck does this even mean?It means that I have come across people who have matriculated through Texas a&m & the Corps of Cadets... and these same people that did not take a commission in the military... well, they carry on as if they actually did time in the military, act as though they have been in combat or served their country, etc.

Just because it dressed like a duck & marched like a duck & screamed like a duck doesn't mean it is or was a duck.

Many years ago, Vietnam, I was an officer in the USMC. Met ONE agroid the whole time, and he was certified wacko! Guess they were all generals HAHAHAHA! Agnerds never let the truth get in the way of their brain dead fables. Perhaps the USMC was a tad extreme for agboys playing soldier at tamu. Thanks be to God that they were not part of the real military!!

i honestly loved being an aggie and am honored to have an aggie ring (although i rarely wear it). i even liked most of the traditions. the ones founded in honor, integrity, and respect for your fellow man (Muster comes to mind)...not the gay, trivial ones haha. there are a shit ton of awesome intelligent aggies who have either gone through a&m or are there now--the majority, in fact. but the crazies, as it is with everything, get all the attention. i'm sure some would call me a two percenter, but i'd imagine if i were to talk to someone from Nowheresville, Iowa about my college experience, i'd paint a&m in a much better light than a gung ho t.u. sucks "we're the real university of texas" ag.

i know when most people think of the a&m, they think of the corps and their shenanigans. but, honestly, on campus, they're an afterthought. no one treats them with any more or less respect; they're just there, oftentimes just a jogging obstacle you have to pass on the sidewalk to get to class. it's a shame. there is a pround heritage there, but it's a shadow of its former self. it doesn't take a genius to figure out that nut grabbing on national tv doesn't help matters much.
