I've not been kind to Johnny Manziel over the last year. Which is probably actually a bit of an understatement. I was, quite honestly, disgusted by him -- along with just about every other blogger/sports personality/public figure out there including his own dad. And yet, when the NCAA announced its joke of a suspension (half of a game) as a result of his dealings with several autograph brokers, I suddenly found myself strangely on the other side.
This is what keeps me up at night. The Redhead has life-threatening food allergies and asthma. So we don't just send him off to camp with toothbrush and toothpaste.
How many Aggies does it take to ride a bike? How about seven: One to actually pedal the bike and six to support the "pedaller." As an Aggie, Cla...
The Texas A&M University Student Senate voted on April 3 to discriminate openly against their fellow LGBT students under the guise of "religious freedom." The only religiously appropriate response this ordained Baptist minister is able to muster at this sad news is "Jesus wept."
When I first met President George H. W. Bush six years ago, I was struck by three things: his deeply felt sense that a meaningful life must include service to others, his gracious humility and the fact that he ordered dessert at lunch and encouraged all present to do the same.
In the latest attempt at roughing the passer, Johnny Football has been blitzed for deciding to take all of his upcoming fall classes online.
Turner, a senior who spent his first two years at the University of Washington, scored 40 in leading the Aggies to an 83-71 win at Kentucky. The 6'5 Turner burned the Wildcats with 25 first half points and finished 14-of-19 from the field and 6-of-10 on three-pointers.
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel made the 11th-ranked Oklahoma Sooners look like a high school team. He dazzled, danced and scrambled in the pocket as if he were playing 7-7 pickup football in the summer.
It took me half a week to calm down and really understand, realize, and be able to explain in detail exactly what this means for Texas A&M, our football team, and for Aggie athletics in general.
Scientists say oil and gas seeps surrounding BP's Deepwater Horizon well appear to be mostly natural and to pre-date the 2010 spill.
A fact that few Longhorns or Aggies would care to acknowledge is that deep down, they don't hate each other -- they need each other. Because a big part of the identity of anyone who attends either institution is in fact their direct connection to the opposing school.
If one questions the financial benefits of the so-called super-conferences, A&M's climb up the TiqIQ Top 25 may well be a leading indicator of the financial windfall to come.
Perry claims he only entered the fray because God told him to. Of course, Michele Bachmann says God called on HER to run for president. So, either someone is fibbing, or God is off his meds again.
The national press loves to fall in love, and Perry had a nice 72-hour honeymoon before his shoot-from-the-lip style, which works in Amarillo, Abilene and around Austin, backfired with Bernanke. Big time.
Praying for rain may bring emotional relief, but it isn't going to be enough. We need real leadership, here on Earth, to prepare for the inevitable consequences of a worsening climate.
