I don't know how to do all the linking stuff, but there is a pretty good article over at espn.com about Texas A&M traditions. It's on the college football page under a column called "Campus Crawl".
My grandfather was a 1912 civil engineering graduate from Texas A&M. Not sure how all that works, but I guess it makes me some kind of bastard Big 12 plainsman grandson. Confession is good for the soul.
