Is this aggy talking about our very own Randolph Duke?   :lol:

 

 

They haven't figured it out yet. The entire SEC, including Mizzou, thinks aggy is the capital of the state of Weird in the county of Self-Inflicted. And the mayor is Mr Potato Head.

 

SEC just wanted you in so you could act as a recruiting launching pad for their schools to get exposure in Texas. And you played the part well to this point.

 

You're still middle of the pack. You still schedule patsies to pad your record. And you're still as awkward and ugly as you were back when we knew you. LOL

"... overly arrogant or contemptuous or delusional or fair-weather... [who] spend their entire pathetic lives in a fruitless one-man propaganda war against [ big brother University of Texas, then Texas Tech, Baylor...] ..."

 

 

Perfect description of social media / blogger / fan-board aggy. Wow! Give this guy a merit badge for perfect self-reflection!

Obviously, not all of us share the aggy opinion on what constitutes proper behavior.

 

 

 

This week, in an Orleans Parish courtroom, a jury of six people will be called on to settle a rarely explored question: If a man presses his genitals on your neck while you're passed out drunk in a crowded hamburger joint, are you the victim of a humiliating sexual assault or just an unsavory prank? Set for trial Tuesday is Brian Downing, the 33-year-old ex-sporting-goods store manager from Alabama whose open-zippered exploits after LSU's loss in the college football championship game on Jan. 9 captured a national audience with a video that spread across the Webhttp://www.nola.com/crime/index.ssf/2012/10/alabama_man_set_for_trial_in_a.html

Former A&M athletic trainer says coaches forced him to clear “good†players

 

 

 

 

Karl Kapchinski, a long-time athletic trainer for Texas A&M who was fired two years ago, says coaches made him clear injured athletes before they were fully healed.

Kapchinski is a part of a segment featured in the season premiere tonight of HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.

In an interview with Jon Frankel, Kapchinski said A&M coaches “put pressure on you to get good players back.â€

Kapchinski is a 1979 graduate of A&M. He worked at the university for 31 years. He was fired, abruptly on Nov. 1. 2013.  That was the day before A&M played Texas-El Paso at Kyle Field.

Kapchinski filed a lawsuit against A&M a year ago, claiming athletic director Eric Hyman terminated him because of his age. Kapchinski was 56 when he was fired. Hyman resigned from A&M earlier this month.

Kapchinski was named Division 1 College Athletic Trainer of the Year in 2005 by the National Athletic Trainer’s Association and was inducted into the Southwest Athletic Trainers Hall of Fame in 2014.

Here’s a transcript provided by HBO of Kapchinski’s interview.

JON FRANKEL: “Did you ever feel pressured to return a player to the field before you thought he was ready,â€
KARL KAPCHINSKI: “I would say yes.â€

KARL KAPCHINSKI: “While we’re considered part of the medical staff in a lotta cases, the head coach just sees you basically, in some cases, being subservient to his situation.â€
JON FRANKEL: “Did you ever have a coach say to you, ‘I need this kid back?’â€
KARL KAPCHINSKI: “Yes. They would always, you know, tend to put pressure on you to get good players back.â€
JON FRANKEL: “Is there anybody you put back into a game and you said, ‘Mm, I wish I hadn’t done that?’â€
KARL KAPCHINSKI: “Yes.â€
JON FRANKEL: “Because it went against your better judgment, or because it resulted in the player limpin’ off the field two plays later?â€
KARL KAPCHINSKI: “Because it resulted in the player having a subsequent injury.â€
JON FRANKEL: “If you said to a coach, ‘Coach, I know we said it was gonna be four weeks, but we need an extra week.’ What would the coach say to you?â€
KARL KAPCHINSKI: “You would be challenged on your character, your credentials. You know, maybe you were the wrong guy for the job.â€

KARL KAPCHINSKI: “There’s been a lotta great quality athletic trainers that have subsequently lost their jobs because they stood up for the players or were doing the right thing.â€

Only aggy could do the conference realignment thing and brag about it nationally in the manner they have, and for the reasons they have, and then risk probation.

After a day of exuberance ventured into Texags for some laughs.

It's like wandering down a sidewalk at 4 am in front of closed taverns and hearing someone mumbling Haiku that makes even less sense that bad Haiku. It's hard to beat when they are really down.

 

I'm just giving snippets of early page one dialog. Is funnier that way anyhow.

 

First one is by Liberalag12 titled "Yeah, I'm gonna say it.....

Blames the board and fans for bombing the program the past couple of months by not supporting Sumlin more....

Second one is really weird.

 

By Collard Greens titled "Look what DC's wife just quoted" and gives a Tweet with another tweet...

Said tweet by said wife reads boldly

  Beyonce' is my spirit animal

I saw the DC one. Apparently the DC wife retweeted someone that said

 

"@Sumlin what goes around comes around. You are not a true, loyal, honest man & your day will come.."

 

Since been taken down, but screenshot is up on TexAgs
