Love Granger Smith, but then again you can't go wrong with Texas Country!
The kids used to say that they grew up thinking that there were only 2 colleges in the entire world. The 'good college', TAMU, and the 'bad' college, UT. LOL We've got dear friends who are die-hard UT fans though and we love them too so please don't send me ugly comments. It's all in good fun.
It's the whole Aggie experience that is difficult to explain. I don't care where I go, people stop and ask me when I graduated and what I majored in and we strike up conversations when they notice my ring. I was even on an airplane, flying to Europe and had several people ask. Once I had flat and a couple stopped to help. Said they stopped because of the Aggie sticker on the back of the truck. :)
Here in NM, New Mexico State is known as the Aggies. I tell people all the time that that is just wrong. There is only one Aggie. Our girl was heavily recruited to attend there...full ride scholarship and then some, but I guess she has some of that Texas Aggie maroon blood in her too. Wonder how that got there! :)
We don't even watch football around here...unless it's the Aggies. We used to...back in the day...WAY back in the day. Think Tom Landry, Dallas Cowboy Era. LOL. And of course we were huge fans in high school and college.
Went to a financial adviser's office once and had to laugh. He had a doormat that was half A&M and half UT. He had one child attending UT and one at A&M. :)
I've been hoarding A&M fabric for a while. An Aggie quilt is in my future!
I never even applied to any other school. I told my parents that if I couldn't go there, I wasn't going anywhere! When I got back from the Fish Camp orientation, my Daddy said that I had been brainwashed. He may have been right.
