Saw… Mike’s legs off?!?

(Sorry LSU fans, it’s the only SEC mascot’s name I know.)

Fightin' Texas Aggie Band

“Saw Varsity’s horns off…”

These words are an integral part of Texas A&M’s War Hymn (aka fight song; see below) and yet now, it looks like they’ll be useless.  With the exception of six seasons, Texas A&M has played Texas in football every year since 1894!  We have been in the Big 12 since it’s inception and have one of the longest running rivalries in college football.  And now we seem to be throwing that all away.  For what?!  Possibly some better recruits, more money, more tv time?!  Great, let the entire country see us get crushed by teams that we are not good enough to compete with.  The Big 12 is a good conference and we couldn’t win there, so let’s put ourselves in an even better conference and throw away all hopes for a winning season, great, thanks.

Some say this is the best move for us to do now before the Big 12 dissolves anyway.  But why does it have to?!  Because Colorado and Nebraska left?!  Hello… Colorado has consistently be the worst team in the Big 12 (sorry, it’s true) and Nebraska hasn’t been really good in years.  An entire conference is going to collapse because two teams left?!  There are plenty of schools that could take their spots.  For one, look at TCU, they are doing amazing and could definitely hang with the teams in the Big 12.  Hell, even the University of Houston has been doing well.  As I recall, they beat Texas Tech recently :-).

I would love to see A&M’s explanation for doing this because I can’t find any good reasons.

Texas A&M War Hymn:

Hullaballoo, Caneck, Caneck

Hullaballoo, Caneck, Caneck

Goodbye to Texas University,

So long to the orange and the white,

Good luck to dear ol’ Texas Aggies,

They are the ones who show the real old fight

The eyes of Texas are upon you

That is the song they sing so well (sounds like hell)

So goodbye to Texas University 

We’re gonna beat you all to

Chigaroogarem, Chigaroogarem

Rough stuff, real stuff, Texas A&M

Saw Varsity’s horns off

Saw Varsity’s horns off

Saw Varsity’s horns off 

Short! A! (Whoop!)

Varsity’s horns are sawed off

Varsity’s horns are sawed off

Varsity’s horns are sawed off

Short! A! (Whoop!)
