    Franchione out

    Interesting read on TAMU message boards (texags.com). No shocker in this coming, but how about them beating UT in the swan song? nice!

    The boards are mixed - kinda similar to DMac last year (many people saying thanks, some saying good).

    Below is a video. I can't decide if its sad/pathetic or funny. Wait, i'll say both.

    Did NOT like the Iowa State reference.....they showed copy of all the 'bad' losses in Fran's tenure and ....well, you'll see how they treated our 'freaking' 42-14 beatdown @ Kyle Field.

    (insert we're disrespected by Big 12 South teams comment here).

    I hope the north starts beating the "rear end" of the south teams regularly starting next year (although this year it looks pretty good).

    aTm fans deserve beatings at the hands of "Iowa Freaking State".

    Couldn't happen to a better group of fans.

    Ahem, I would have to say A&M has one of the best fan bases in the B12. Their fans applauded our team as they drove away from the stadium in 2005. I was on campus the week after that game and was made very welcome.

    I guess I missed that when you go to sites like TexAgs.com and you see fans describing ISU as a worthless part of the Big 12 - a school that should be booted so they can get more money.

    I have no problem with the A&M fans, but the athletic department and Franchione deserve what they've been getting!!!!

    Agreed, to a great extent. Fran for sure. He never was a fit to A&M.

    I thought that video was pretty funny. There are a lot of good things on YouTube these days.

    I didn't care too much for the Iowa Freakin' State reference either, but from an objective standpoint, when you look at their football history compared to our football history, it's a little more understandable.
