What's that, Reveille? The Aggies have fallen down a well and can't get out? Yeah, that's gonna be a tricky one there, girl. There's not a long enough rope to get the program out from where its gone. At least not one that's somewhat fireproof.
It's easy to see why you're a little melancholy over the Aggies loss to Georgia in the Independence Bowl. Ha! Ha! Melancholy, get it? You're a collie. Not to dwell on the point, but a collie isn't exactly the most inspiring of mascots there. I know it's kind of hard to compete with good 'ol Taco Meat in Texas, but sheesh! A collie? I expect something a little more, well, Texasy out of Texas, dangit! A collie is more, well, Texasissy.
I guess all the good breeds were taken. The Tennessee Vols have those bluetick coonhounds. And the Georgia Bulldogs have ..well, duh! Oh, did I mention Georgia? It it too soon to mention Georgia? Oops! I said it again. Sorry about that, girl.
I can tell the sorry state of Texas A&M football is heavy on you mind there, Reveille. With Texas getting ready for the BCS Championship while watching the Aggies crash and burn in the Independence Bowl things can't be too happy around College Station. Worse yet, there's Texas Tech who have pretty much stolen A&M's role as the No. 2 football school in the Lone Star State. And SMU looks like it's finally recovering from the Death Penalty of 1987. But look on the bright side, there's always Baylor to look down on.

(apologies as usual to Matthew Gasteier)
