An important element of being an Aggie is not being a Longhorn. For years, A&M has prided itself on having been around longer than that other school in Austin, which has been playfully nicknamed "t.u.", standing for the belittling "texas university." "It's one of the longest rivalries in the United States," John Busch, senior yell leader and finance major said. "Both schools have strong personalities." References to A&M's superiority over those Longhorns are featured on T-shirt slogans, in our school's fight song and in business signs throughout College Station.
"You get a kick out of seeing people go against each other. It's just good family fun. And it's just kind of ingrained itself in the culture," junior yell leader and business honors major David Benac said.
