Did you know Texas A&M is a top tier academic institution with a top 10 football program to boot. Well, it is according to anyone who attended Texas A&M and no one else.
The Aggies (lack of) football prowess is well documented:
• one conference championship in 20 years.
• A single national title in 1939.
• Thee bowl wins over the last 21 years

I thought when you reached that level in your professional life when your name was on the front door and the top of the letterhead, you could play more golf, drink more small batch, download more porn, and write witty commentary.
