How do A&M fans feel about this year's home schedule? - theGarnetWay
Excited to move out to College Station in a few months and I'm extremely fortunate that I can still go to an SEC school that had a program that I was looking for. With that said looking at the home schedule this year the A&M season ticket holders can't be too excited about how it shook out this year...

Did the Marines get their new slogan from the Taliban? Badass story - theGarnetWay
So I was reading former DoD director Robert Gates' memoir and he tells this story. If you've seen the new Marine recruiting campaign it mentions something about running towards the sound of chaos campaign, this story just sounded like it completely supported that idea. "On this trip, I heard ...

What city / pro teams do A&M fans generally follow? - theGarnetWay
Assuming a lot of A&M's students and alum come from all over Texas I was just wondering how the pro team loyalties divide up? Is it generally towards Houston's teams? Dallas' teams? Are the students a mixed bag of both? Does anyone prefer a Houston team in one sport but a Dallas team in another spor...

OT Confessional: Things you did that you knew qualified you as an a-hole. - theGarnetWay
Who knows? Maybe you're an ass, maybe you're not, but I think it's safe to say we've all done thinks we clearly knew was something an a-hole would do.. but do it anyway. For example. I've been in the service industry before so I'm generally a good tipper. But recently I've gotten in the bad habi...

What movies that have been made in your lifetime do you think will be remade? - theGarnetWay
Born in 1990. Already in my lifetime there have been movies and remakes of The Hulk, a shite ton of Batmans, and soon Godzilla. So what movies were once new in your lifetime but will eventually be remade? I'm thinking Titanic, and the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings series. ...

Wedged in between Jordan and Lebron, how will history remember Kobe? - theGarnetWay
Well Jordan of course is already considered one of the greatest of all time, if not the greatest of all time. Lebron still has a lot of basketball left to be played but at the pace he is going I think his all-time greatness will be undeniable as well. With that said what about Kobe? Obviously he ...

At the end of the day who gets more credit for the Pats? Brady or Belichick - theGarnetWay
At one point or another these two aren't going to be on the same team anymore, and while there is no telling how long their careers will go on without each other, unless they happen to retire at the same time, I was wondering who might be attributed more to the success of the Patriots over the last ...

Is it possible to atone for America's darker history and maintain strength? - theGarnetWay
I had a lengthy OP but I found I was rambling on and damn near arguing with myself to try to get both points across so I'll pose some questions. 1) Can the U.S. ever apologize or atone for some of its darker moments in history without coming off as weak or a push-over in which case many might thi...

So I was scanning through our wiki page the other day and I saw this.

The undefeated conference record earned the Ga...

Is P. Manning the only one with a multi-Super Bowl monkey on his back? - theGarnetWay
Whether its fair or not a lot of pro athletes are remembered and judged by the overall titles they have. With that said I remember when Manning won his first Super Bowl a few years back it seemed like that monkey was off his back. But with all the talk last week about his 1 and done record and his o...

Will my beloved Gamecocks be the highest ranked team to not get a BCS bid? - theGarnetWay
I'm not sure if they do another poll next week but with the Ok.St loss I imagine the Gamecocks, who are currently #8 in the AP, will move up to #7. Now regardless of what happens in the SECCG I can't imagine the loser of that game falling any further than #6. So if SC finishes #7 will we be the high...
