Isn’t Sul Ross a big deal to Aggies?

Most schools in the south paid their respect to the South. If you look hard enough everyone except Jesus Christ has had some flaws . Getting worked up about it is kinda silly.

A&M didn't allow black students until 1963, 7 years after the RACIST University of Texas, and University of North Texas.

Other Racist Universities:

Houston: 1960s (guessing '63 also)
Texas Tech: 1961
A&M Commerce 1963 (guessing it was the entire A&M System)

So the first school(s) in Texas to allow black students was the Super Racist school known as The University of Texas... because of a song?  I guess every city in the state is racist too because almost every district has a Robert E Lee school etc for honoring the historical leaders who helped establish this wonderful state.  

North Texas was the first school in the state to allow black athletes. There's a really good book about it called The Game Changers.

My point exactly.  Just curious as to what JF has to say about their universities founder.

Texas lands 4* CB Ishmael Ibraheem and 4* S JD Coffey.

Defense recruiting is looking real good right now, but offense looks like a dud atm.

Brockermeyer brothers will be the difference in a top 5 elite class instead of a 5-10 pretty good class IMO and right now they are trending to Alabama.  Maybe things change if Texas wins the Big 12, but if Herman can't do it this year with this roster then I'm not sure if he ever will ( and will need to do some @Stoney soul searching ).  Winning the Big 12 and in consideration/making the playoff will make a lot of current players committed elsewhere think about flipping and payoff big for the 22' class.  Have another 7-5 type season and it's probably start over time.

The NFL has already lost me for 2020. If the NCAA gets into it I'll be abandoning ship as well. 

Pretty sure the NCAA will leave it up to the individual schools.  The NCAA has other inequalities to take advantage of.

If the schools had any testicular fortitude at all they would yank the scholarship of every athlete that willingly does not participate in their sport.

If Oklahoma State/Gundy was so terrible then why would Hubbard even return for an ill advised extra season in college anyway?

What a silly reason to get upset about. You can tell he doesn’t have a great relationship with a Gundy. Say it man to man rather than crying about it on social media. Gives the school a bad look.

Gives the man who gave one of the most epic soundbites ever defending a BLACK KID.  HE'S A MAN!  PROBABLY 50 NOW!  ATTACK GUNDY, NOT THE KID!  I AM A MAN!

People want diversity as long as you agree with them.

From what I can see, a lot of UT issues are coming out of the Office of Diversity. I thought the purpose was to celebrate differences and not to create division. But I am an “OK Boomer“ that was taught the United States was a melting pot of cultures. Unfortunately we have put society in a centrifuge and banded out our differences.

a&m-Commerce wasn't part of the a&m system until around '94-95. That's when the name changed from East Texas State University to what it is now. 

No clue on first black students at ETSU. That '63 date could be correct...maybe not.

When I left my small East Texas town and headed to Austin for college I was in for a huge surprise. I graduated from high school (1984) with a class of about 140 people. I thought that everyone was "like" me.  That is, until I got to UT.  What I thought was a normal person was thrown out of the window.  For everyone "like" me there were 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 plus that were NOT like me.  I will say that some of my viewpoints changed as well as my tolerance level of others grew likewise.  But what did not change is my opinion of stupid people and agitators.

One thing about being on a major college campus there is always something going on.  A group is always protesting something.  A bulk of my classes were near the West Mall which was a Free Speech area during noon M-F (It may still be but I do not know for sure) so I witnessed a lot of protesting.  It did not matter what the cause was but there was always the same core group protesting something.  Of course the protesting group size would change depending on how many other people felt the need to protest but that same core group remained the same.  They were always upset about something.  Some were not even students.

I am all in for changing things for the better but I do not like stupid people that act out of emotion instead of logic and I do not like agitators that keep having to stir the pot for their own personal agendas and/or take things out of context.  Plus I do not like others telling someone how they should feel about something.

While my daughter was a student at UT (2010-2014) she had to take some Diversity Classes.  She had a roommate that had a "COEXISTS" sticker on her car that had all of the different religious symbols spelling the word coexists.  While I agree that we need to coexists that does not mean we have to agree. It is of my opinion that the ability to disagree quickly escalates to the other person being wrong and there is no middle ground thus "diversity" is no longer present.

That's the thing... my tolerance levels grew.  My understanding grew.  My ideals never changed.  I have gay friends.  I have gay family.  I have Clinton diehards (God Bless Arkansians) in my family.  

I can listen to them.  I don't fight them.  There is no reason to.  I make them explain their reasoning on why something is right or wrong...  I keep asking them to elaborate until they hit a dead end.  I never force my views on them.  Sometimes they ask.  They usually hate the answer.  Most of my homosexual friends grew up in church etc and are now Godless people.  So they don't understand.  My liberal family thinks the Democratic party has no flaws until they are asked to put it up against their religious beliefs and our Constitutional freedoms.  

The truth is, being a God fearing person and a 100% Democrat is Godless.  The work of Satan.  If you are a mildly conservative Democrat then you may have some room to wiggle...  But if you are going to stand with Nancy and Joe and how they have treated your freedoms in the past, you may as well be an Athiest Canadian.

My Grandpa was Great Depression born, a 8th grade dropout due to having help his father haul pulpwood to feed their family of 10. He raised 2 sons while being a ranch hand, a truck driver and eventually running his own dirt work business. He was a Democrat. Lifelong. “Stoney, remember this. A Republican is for the rich man. A Democrat is for the working man.” My Grandpa’s Democrat is long gone. They shifted to Republican when the rest of that party shifted socialist.
 

Our parents when they started this everybody is equal, everybody is special, participation trophy bull, they ramped up the road to hell that we are on. You used to be able to have civil disagreements with somebody with a differing opinion. You can’t do that today. Anybody with a different opinion has to be canceled. You take their voice away. You take their career away. You make their lives hell. Because these kids have been raised that their opinion is the only valid one to have. They are so socially crippled that the only way they know to get their point across is to throw a temper tantrum. You can’t have a conversation with someone who reacts off emotion and not reason.

I understand that it will be changed. For the longest I never paid attention to the tune. It was Dixie that was played at a very fast pace. For you old timers out there it was like playing a 33 LP on the 78 setting on the record player.
