    Re: Texas A&M's Application Letter to the SEC

    But wait... the Aggies said publically that there had been no contact with the SEC until they had announced they were "exploring" other conference options last summer. You mean to tell me that the president of Texas A&M is a liar?

    Re: Texas A&M's Application Letter to the SEC

    Kinda cute how they omitted Austin from the list of Texas metroplexes they're near. It wouldn't be much more work to change "3 of top 10" to "4 of top 15" but I think a mason jar is shattered every time an Aggie says "Austin."

    Actually, the first application letter, which was initally rejected. Slive responded to this application with "Wut, y'all think yur smart 'er sumthin?"

    aTm then sent a second letter, except this time with spelling errors and tobacco spit stains, which was then accepted.

    Re: Texas A&M's Application Letter to the SEC

    I was thinking, as I read, "Wow. Really well written." Then I came to Texas A$M's 6 core values. Something about two of the last three seemed a little disingenuous and hypocritical. 4 of the last 5 words of that sentence, given context of the application, rub me the wrong way.

    Re: Texas A&M's Application Letter to the SEC

    did I read that correctly that there are 50,000 enrolled at this time, and "more than 360,000 former students" worldwide? so what is the life expectancy of a Texas A&M grad post-graduation? 10 years? They should have at least a million alumni, anyone know the ISU alumni figure?

    Huh? Redo your math. 50,000 at a time, not graduating every year.

    Say, for example they have had over the years 7k average graduate every year x 50 years left to live, equals 350k alumni.

    Do you suppose they sent the SEC a copy of this [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9I1lQwmSXO4&feature=related]Ben Cotton violated by Texas A&M player 11/20/10 - YouTube[/ame] along with their application?
