Texas A&M just held a “Chalk Talk” seminar to help reintroduce football to women. And as you'd imagine, it went as bad as you'd think. Assistant football coaches Jim Turner and Jeff Banks reworked the lyrics to its fight song, “The Aggie War Hymn”, per the Houston Chronicle...

We are Aggie women
We are filled with estrogen
Hullabaloo, canek, canek, and back again
Maroon & white are the colors we love
We are putting down our dish towels
And taking off our gloves
No more lysol or cascade
We want to score Touchdowns
And walk in the parade
We are Aggie women & this is our song
Come on…bring it on…no more thong
"We want to sincerely apologize to the passionate Aggie fans and to women for our failed attempt at humor during this week's Aggie Football Chalk Talk and fundraiser. We clearly understand now that our comments and slides were not appropriate or consistent with the values of our football program or our Department. We must do better, and we will," Turner and Banks said in a statement.
