I spent a fair amount of time at A&M in the mid '80s. At the time, it was the largest single gathering of hardcore Republicans in the country. I'm guessing it will fit in just fine with the rest of the SEC.

A&M grad here. First, I think it's stupid and shouldn't have been done - it makes us look terrible. The only reason I can think of for anyone to have decided to claim the '97 and '10 Big 12 Titles is based on Link. From the official Big 12 site, it says we have three conference titles (and notes in small print that it includes co-championships and division title). Again, I think it's a terrible idea. Too many Aggies get pissed about how we're perceived nationally, but then go and do things like this to reinforce those perceptions. Claiming those musty old National TItles was also a terrible move (though I think it is awesome that our 1919 team outscored its opponents 275-0).

We just make it too easy for people sometimes, unfortunately. Still, happy to be in the SEC and a little disappointed that I can't be there for the game tomorrow.
