| Texas A&M Sports Board|| How do A&M fans feel about this year's home schedule? - theGarnetWay on 4/15/14 at 5:53 pm|
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...

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.

| Texas A&M Sports Board|| What city / pro teams do A&M fans generally follow? - theGarnetWay on 4/3/14 at 7:56 pm|
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...

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...
| Movie/TV Board|| What movies that have been made in your lifetime do you think will be remade? - theGarnetWay on 3/31/14 at 4:34 pm|
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. ...

Well as they come to me I'm sure I'll add to this thread but there are some things I'd like to know, some are simple, some may push tl;dr.
1) Gig'em. What the hell does this mean and where did it come from?
2) Aggies. I read that this came as an old nickname that came from A&M's agricultural b...

Sorry, phone was too quick to post.

I can't say my loyalties to the athletic teams will change but I can't wait to get out to A&M in the fall. :cheers:...

Without going into too much details all I have to say is great campus, great professors, great people. I think the interview went well and I'm optimistic about my chances. If I get accepted I won't hesitate to accept.

#3 SC beat down #11 Clemson to secure yet another series vs the Tigers

Well I have the option to move to Denver in late July / early August for school and I would appreciate any advice anyone could give me on the city.
I'm sold on the school and the program itself and I hear its a beautiful city with a bunch to do, especially outdoors but, unfortunately, I won't get...

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 ...

For example your Alien vs Predators, Freddy vs Jasons of the world?
I can't seem to think any. The only reason I enjoyed the AVP films is because it was cool to see those 2 SciFi icons with modern effects, especially the Predator technology.
So are there any movies that you guys enjoy that is...

Well I need something that is roughly the shape of Facebook banner's used for people's profiles. I'd like to have the Miami logo on one side and the Gamecock logo on the lower half. I thought about describing it on here but I'm not sure if I could have described what I was looking for so I took the ...

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 ...

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...

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...

A purely speculative thread obviously but I didn't realize he was only 31 games out. The idea that he would've already passed it was brought up by GamecockCentral.

However A&M is the only I've seen that is so damn difficult because of the applytexas thing. Anyone care to share why all the Texas schools have set up this system? I haven't see...

Not overly excited about another Cap 1 bowl against a B1G team but I'd like another 11-wins season despite falling short of the SECCG. So I'd be mad but it'd more like

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...
| SEC Rant|| End of the regular season, do you consider your season a success or failure? - theGarnetWay on 12/3/13 at 1:25 pm|
For SC it is kind of difficult. We failed in our main objectives which would be winning the East which would ultimately give us the shot to win the SEC outright.
But with that said we accomplished a lot of first.
1st 5 game win streak over Clemson
Longest home win streak in school history

Jeff Gordon is another one.

Well I know the Mizzou fan was trying to start a troll thread and quite frankly I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did because I didn't think there was much of a debate to begin with considering we ended up with 5 losses so before anyone thinks I'm trying to counter-troll the West know that I hav...

Well I've seen a few on here say that Clowney has hurt his draft stock pretty severely because of his lack of production and effort this year in comparison to his first two years.
