I know your a longhorn, I know you dont respect my thoughts due to my anti-texas slant, but with as open of a mind as possible, can you answer me this one question i have always had a hard time trying to figure out.
Texas fans always call A&M obsessed with Texas, but why is it that when I go to hornfans.com, half the post I see on there are all about A&M? I come on here, and now see a article about two months old posted to poke fun of A&M. I just want to know the logic of Texas always poking fun of the little brother if they are so supperior.
A&M does the same thing with Tech, always making some comment on texags, about the Red Raiders, but they then say its not a rivalry. I just have never understood the logic behind A&M bashing Tech all the time but not calling them a rival, then Texas always having something to say about A&M but then they are the ones who will call A&M the obsessed ones.
Once again, this is not trying to start a flame, I am just curious as to the logic used with the fan bases of these two schools.

If you notice the majority of the posts on Hornfans are
showing the stupidity of aggy, aggy tradition and just
plain old aggydom. It is a way for Longhorn fans to keep
their sense of humor. The tradtions are so weird, that most
Horns fans can't help but say " look what these weirdos are
doing now..." It is not an obsession...it's a form a comedy.
And definitely not a rivalry...In order for it to be a rivalry UT
would have to be concerned about losing to them...

As far as aggy's obsession with the sand-ags...I have no clue.
To me it would make more sense for them to pick on someone
they just totally own...like ..uhhh...Baylor?

my bad...that was un-called for...

To be brutally honest... Texas just likes picking on aggy, and with listeater, players constantly getting arrested, players being arrested for public ************, the recent rapping ags, etc. aggy is a very easy target. The land thieves like picking on Texas, Texas likes picking on aggy and aggy likes picking on Tech, and so goes the pecking order in the Big XII. aggy is still a rival of course, and a very heated one at that, but the rivalry isnt what it once was. Now the Red River Shootout dominates most Texas fans minds while the aggy game is on the back burner. However, for aggy, the Texas game is their biggest game of the year. As wide-e-wide said, if you look at the posts on Hornfans, 99% are in some way derogatory or making fun of aggy. Most posts have little to do with the games themselves because to be honest, most Texas fans just expect a win over aggy. I dont know if I would call that "obsessed" or just having some fun, but I think every school is guilty of it in some form.

Texas owns BlowU
Texas owns aggy
Texas owns Tech

In the 100+ seasons of Texas football, the only schools Texas has played at least five games against and has a loosing record to are Notre Dame (2-8) and Vanderbilt (3-8-1) though the last time Texas played Vanderbilt was in 1928. Texas leads or is tied in every single series standing in which at least 5 games have been played.

Well if you go by post world war 2 dates, I believe that the series with OU is pretty even, with the the longest win streaks in the series belonging to OU, something like 5 of the widest margin of victories in the series going to OU, OU being a more accomplished football program than Texas, the list could go on. If you go by overall records in series, then you win that argument, however, i believe that the comment i was refering to was being a threat to beat you is what is makes a rivalry, and right now that would not make Texas/OU a rivalry.
The proud tradition of Texas football has produced 4 confrence titles in the last 20 years, and no national titles in the last 35, but yet they still act like they are the pennical of what college football is all about.

The proud tradition of Texas football has produced 4 confrence titles in the last 20 years, and no national titles in the last 35, but yet they still act like they are the pennical of what college football is all about.

I know very few Texas fans (if any) that would call Texas football, "the pinnacle of what college football is all about." In fact, most including myself will be quick to deflect such a title to the likes of Michigan, Notre Dame, Alabama, etc. What most Texas fans will tell you (myself included) is that Texas belongs at that pinnacle... that is where the Horns should be and anything less is not a total success. Sure, the Rose Bowl win is great and a Big XII championship trophy would look awful nice, but in the end, anything less than the crystal football with the stupid corporate name is not only a letdown to The University of Texas, but to the state for which the institution is named.

People are quick to mention the 30+ years since Texas won a NC, but arent as quick to mention the 66 years since aggy won a NC or the fact that Tech has never won a NC. The reason is because National championships arent expected from those schools. Championships are expected of Texas... not just from their fans, but from their enemies as well. The University of Texas represents this state on the national stage the same way the University of Michigan represents Michigan, Ohio State represents Ohio or the University of Nebraska represents Nebraska. Sure, there may be other schools in those states and those schools might enjoy some success from time to time, but in the end, only the Texas, Michigans, Ohio States and Nebraskas of the world are capable of and responsible for representing their respective states on college football's biggest stage.

Few will argue that there is any state that rivals Texas in the sport of football and even fewer will argue over which school is most dominant in the state... The University of Texas. That is what Texas fans know and realize. In this state that cherishes and embraces football the way it does, no school even holds a candle to Texas in terms of success and dominance. Right now Texas is not tops in the nation, but they hope to be headed that way. For now, the Longhorns will just have to settle for being the best in Texas... which isnt a bad silver medal.

I agree with you for the most part, and I'm an Agie, but you do contradict yourself. You ask why people never talk about A&M or Tech's NC's or lack thereof, but then you give yourself an answer...it's one of the few things about colleges that aren't double standards. When Texas is regarded as the best in the state, people have a right to ask about an NC, it's because they're the best in the state thats arguably the best in football. People don't ask about Tech and A&M because we're not the best in Texas...the same reason people don't ask about Cal, OSU, FSU, Miami (Ohio), and countless others.

I guess I just answered my own question. That's what happens when you make a post so late at night. :D

People, Texas fans or not, have a certain right to criticize the Horns lack of a NC just because The University does represent the state of Texas. However, as critical as aggy or anybody else might be, I dont think any other fans are harder on Texas than Texas fans themselves. Like I said, they're happy with the Rose Bowl and we'll put on a good face, but a NC is the goal and that goal has yet to be reached. There are no fans I know that want or expect a NC more than Texas fans.

A national champinship is expected every year.
And in my opinion they are on the brink right now.

farmerfan
04-17-2005, 02:19 PM
Texas is on the brink, they have as good of a chance as any to be the number two team in the BCS standings going into the BCS championship game this coming year. The one area why I think people are so hard on Texas is because of the perception it gets from "some" of the fans that represent that school, not all Texas fans represent it in a bad way, just like any other school, however the thing that makes so many people anti-texas (if thats the correct statement to call it) is that a lot of the fans expect to be mentioned with the likes of Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Alabama, Notre Dame, USC, Nebraska, and so on when those schools have all won a national title in the last 13 years with the exception being Nortre Dame who last won one 17 years ago. Maybe its me being young, but in my lifetime, Texas was never a major player on the college football scene until the last 5 years.
The funny thing is that no one talks about A&M or Tech and national titles, but Texas fans who are not concerned with them always seem to point it out that they still have more national titles than those two schools or that A&M has not won one in 66 years. (which a national title from 1939 is funny to have displayed on your stadium) I know I am in the minority on my feelings and have had some very interesting conversations in my lifetime about this topic, but it is still fun to debate and read other peoples point of views.
If we are going to talk about Texas baseball than that is a different story, outside of USC I cant think of any other program with a more proud baseball tradition than that of Texas.

give up on football. I just know one thing...it must be dang hard to be

Baylor should move to the WAC or Conference USA. They stand a much better chance against the TCUs and Tulanes of the world. Being the only private school in the Big XII just doesnt seem fair. Baylor should then be replaced by New Mexico or UTEP or Houston or some school like that. I dont know that they stand a better chance than Baylor, but maybe in time they can adapt and improve better than the Bears have.

farmerfan
04-17-2005, 08:00 PM
I have always liked the idea of keeping Baylor in the confence since they are very competitive in other sports, the situation that I would love to see happen is, Colorado leave for the Pac 10, and be replaced by Arkansas in the Big 12 North. I know a lot of hard feelings exist towards Arkansas since they left the Texas schools high and dry, but they belong with the Texas schools and the Oklahoma schools and by being in the Big 12, even if it was the North division, they would be guranteed to play at least one out of these four schools every year, OU,OSU,A&M and Texas. Heck right now it is Baylor that is sitting atop the standings in baseball, keep em around.

It is just sad. They are the lovable losers of the Big XII. There is no

Well if you go by post world war 2 dates, I believe that the series with OU is pretty even, with the the longest win streaks in the series belonging to OU

BTW, just for grins and giggles... Texas owns the series standing since WWII as well as the longest winning streak in the series at 8 games ('58-'65). Coming into the Red River Shootout, Texas has been nationally ranked in 41 of the games since WWII with an average ranking of #9... BlowU has been nationally ranked in 43 of those games with an average ranking of #6. So, despite being the underdogs in most of the games, Texas still holds the series lead. So, if you wanted, you could say that it is traditionally BlowU that underachieves in the series. Go figure.

Thanks for the correction about the longest winning streak in the series, I thought that OU had owned the two longest winning streaks with them being 5 games each, I know OU has done that on two occasions now. However about the post ww2 comment, I never said it was even, I said it was close to even, looking at the numbers UT still has a lead, but its not by much, with the current trend, I easily see OU closing that gap. As far as the Baylor comment goes, you UT'ers say that A&M is so bad, then why is it such a shock to all of you that they lost to Baylor, heck as far as Big 12 play goes, didn't Baylor beat UT, if not in Big 12 play i know it was in the final days of the SWC. The time will come when UT will lose to a Baylor or a Iowa State and who knows maybe even a Kansas. The one thing that A&M still can say is that they are the last team from Texas to win a Big 12 title and the first from the state to ever go to a BCS bowl game. I know they did not win that BCS game, and Texas fans will counter with well UT was the first school from Texas to win a BCS game, but the Ags still can claim to be the last from the state to win a confrence title. It also would not shock me to see UT going into kyle field with a shot at playing for a national title, to only see the Aggies ruin it, like DD said, it has happend before to the likes of Rice, TCU and Baylor, and it could be A&M this year, stranger things have happend and will continue to happen.

Also back to the original topic of this thread, I know that A&M has had some toruble with the law in recent years, if it wasnt Jamar Tombs, it was Chase Pitman, or Jason Carter or Cole Smith, however UT fans have no right to be the ones to point a finger at the misdoings of Aggie players. Just look at Cedric, if it wasn't the marijuana in Midland it was beating down a elderly women's door to take her plasma TV, or Tim Moss beating the snot out of a guy then running from the cops and hiding in his GF's car. Then there is Brock Edwards who at 6'4 265lbs felt like he needed to vent some frustration on a 160 lb frat boy so he just decided to rearange his face and send the guy into surgery. Then how can we forget about the incident in Madisonville not to long ago with the UT football players getting pulled over by a cop who found some marijuna in the vehicle they were traveling in. So in reality UT fans have no right to point a finger at the wrong doings in Aggieland without first looking at their own program. O I forgot, they keep that in the family and dont discuss it in public.

Im not a Aggie, im a college football fan first, with no affiliation to any school accept UNT, however I love the game of college football and try to look at it from a unbiased standpoint, however with my negativity towards UT some say I do not have a unbiased point of view, so to each his own , but do not call me a Aggie, my screename has nothing to do with me bing a Aggie, it has to do with a bunch of Farmers in maroon that reside in North Texas.

mean green, thats great :D
I love going to a school where our mascot is named after the only famous football player to play football on the famed fouts field. But im not a mean green fan, im like about 99% of the rest ofthe student body at this school, i just cant get around to supporting the atheltic department, just refer to me as Farmer, i love my Lewisville Fighting Farmers.

I gotcha...
is "mean green" the actual nickname
Isn't it the green wave or something like that?
I always call 'em the mean green though.
They always help my Horns get off to a good start
so I have nothing against them.

The actual nickname is the Eagles, but that is mainly for womens sports, the men go by Mean Green, I believe it is after Mean Joe Greene, pretty funny if you ask me. Yes they tend to help the horns get off to a good start and anyone else who they play to open up the season, this year they go to LSU, now that should be a interesting outcome.

I heard the whole story once. It is after Mean Joe, but
I don't remember who started calling them that. Why on
earth do they start their season with the likes of UT and LSU...

One reason: money, they will get more money by going to LSU this year than they will be able to generate in all their home games combined. A few years ago they started off in Norman, and then went to Air Force, last year UNT played the likes of UT, Baylor and Colorado.

Harvard and Yale (Yale students pulled the prank on Harvard). You gotta love those Ivy Leaguers.

I'm a student at THE University of Texas and like many of my fellow classmates I despise everything OU and A&M. But there are a couple of comments always made that as far as students go are untrue. To say that OU is our biggest rival is not true, as far as current students look at it. Students still hate A&M more than OU, why, because we went to school and know most of the students who go to A&M. We make fun of A&M not becuase of their traditions but because thats what people do, they make fun of their rival just as they make fun of UT. We call them Aggy and they call us tu. Also, to say UT represents the state of Texas is a little far fetched, that would be like FSU saying they represent Florida. The truth is UT represents part of the state and A&M represents the other part. A state the size of Texas cannot have one representative school. As much as Horn fans hate to say it, people around the nation look at both A&M and UT when looking at the state of football in Texas. I root for A&M, why, because I want the football in Texas to be the best around the nation, but when it comes time to play UT I want to stomp the ever loving life out of them. When A&M and UT are both good, then Texas is the top football state, when one is good and the other isn't, then the state lacks something. When both are bad, (which hasn't happened to often) then football in Texas sucks. Both A&M and UT are well respected football programs, with great fans, and big stadiums and large athletic funds. I'd stack football in the state of Texas against any other state when both A&M and UT are rolling, it doesn't get any better than Texas football. Hook'em!

Most people who say stuff about either A&M or UT never went to either school. They're what we call t-shirt fans.

If those "t-shirt" fans stopped buying those "t-shirts" and
buying tickets to the games...UT and aggy would be what we
call .."broke colleges" ...and considering some of those fans that
buy tickets and "t-shirts" only do so because they pay tuition for
their kids to go there...Let's subtract that money too.
Now what do you have?
Sounds like people should appreciate the "t-shirt" fans...
without them...UT and aggy would be SFA and Sam Houston.

Yeah, but it's April...talk to me when it's time to
go to Omaha.

This was my response to FarmerFan when he mentioned Baylor being in
first place in the Big XII baseball standings...
Called that one 2 months ago.

Not bad for a guy that is supposed to add no value to the board and
has no sports knowledge.
