Why Aggies refer to their state's flagship university as "t.u."
Answer: Envy

But why would A&M so despicably envy The University of Tex... er... "t.u."?

Here are some statistics showcasing each school's prowess in athletics and academia.

Big 3 Sports Titles Since 1940

Univ. of Texas at Austin, a.k.a. "t.u.": 10

Texas A&M: 0


U.S. News and World Report Academic Rankings

t.u.: #49

Texas A&M: #66

When speaking to other Aggies they are always tu. Any other time they are simply Texas, or arrogant pricks ... Something along those lines

Good question. If I were them I wouldn't bring up anything academic related. Because well... you know.

It’s true.
You’re the first one who’s ever supposed this.
I commend you for your insight.

The types of people who attend Texas A&M University very much wish we were ensconced in the land of ... different kids.

That still doesn't change the fact they are known as the university of Texas across the nation as of now.

Mama just give it up. We all know on this site A&M is UT's little brother. Honestly A&M has potential but to move forward they need to forget about Texas unless recruiting is involved.

Who is Aggie? I've never seen that term on this site.




Oh - wait...you mean aggy?

Honestly, I think you might be right. Envy is pretty much the only reason one fanbase would ever intentionally alter the name of another fanbase in a way that might be taken as derogatory.

MSU posters post more about A&M than Ole Miss.

What’s wrong with y’all?

Honey, I admitted it; it’s true.
We’re jealous of the horns.
Every single one of us farmers wishes we were in Austin.
