Poor Aggies. They’ve always been some sort of special to us. They made fools out of themselves when they decided to go the SEC. So, we thought we’d dig a little deeper into the cult – I mean, “university” – that we love so very much (bless their hearts).
21.) “Mugging Down”
The idea is that “When the football team scores, everyone scores.” Seems a bit on the creeper side.
20.) Sayin’ “texas university”
College Station: where learning disabilities are witty.
19.) Indoctrination Camp (Fish Camp or T-Camp)
Nah, fuck a weekend-long orientation. Let’s do four days in an even more remote shithole than College Station and learn fight songs.
18.)The Aggie War Hymn

17.) The glorified ROTC.
Totally the opposite of the Keep Austin Weird Army.
