Poor, Disillusioned aggies

From today's "What Bowl Game Would You Like to Go To?" post over at the I Am The 12th Man blog:

If we played in the Texas Bowl, we'd face a Navy team featuring the flexbone offense. The advantage there is that the whole "former military school playing a current military school" storyline would really appeal to the media.

I am wondering: Do the aggies understand that they are not, in fact, a military school? Do they understand that they are the only university in the country with a standing corps of cadets (snicker), but no actual affiliation with an actual branch of an actual military service?

More importantly, do they understand that they could be matched up against the national champions of the under-twenty lingerie football league in a game that kicks off at midnight on New Year's Eve from Yankee Stadium, and it wouldn't appeal to the media because Texas A & M football is crappy and irrelevant? Do they understand that, if it wasn't for Texas, the game Thursday wouldn't even be on television because who the hell wants to come to College freaking Station?

Or are they just that mind-bogglingly stupid?

(In the interest of full disclosure, I should tell you that I found myself banned from their little blog today, which I find funny because I haven't posted over there in a couple of weeks, and I don't recall being particularly nasty when I did post. Whatever. After Thursday, I don't have to think about aggies for a whole year.)
