Tons. Lots of small comments, like in "Intolerable Cruelty" and "My Best Friend's Wedding", not to mention obvious ones like "Varsity Blues" and "Friday Night Lights" (movie).

Might mention Rip Torn, Bob Gates by association, etc.

Oh, and Snoop Dog wearing A&M gear in some of his 90s music videos.

Don't forge the cartoon that was in playboy in 2004 (I think) that featured Texas S&M University.

On the Simpsons when the power plant is outsourced to India, Apu's cousin runs a call center and while talking about a Cotton Bowl special, he says "Go Aggies!"

We were in Space Cowboys.

FYI there is a really great thread about this topic. Only problem is it is about 2-3 years old so you will need some fancy stars to search for it. It had hundreds of posts and probably included every A&M pop reference of all time.

I don't like The Ramones or know anything about them (outside of Blitzkrieg Bop)... but my brother loves them and on the cover of the album Rocket to Russia one of them is wearing a Texas Aggies shirt with Ol' Sarge on it:

These are all excellent references, though some are questionable. Keep 'em coming!

That's funny about the Ramones, didn't know about the shirt, during my time at A&M they played a live venue that is now defunct called 'East Gate Live' on more than one occasion, the guy might have bought that shirt at Loupots when he was in CS. East Gate Live was located across the street from where Hornbeck's is.

Several references in Brokeback Mountain for those of you that saw it...

I'm going to butcher this reference. But on Letterman, the guy at the shop nearby (don't know his name, sorry) was wearing an Aggies shirt that somebody sent him and Dave asked about it.

There was a reference in "Texas Justice" (a made-for-tv flick) along the line that T. Cullen Davis' daddy could have sent his sons to any university in America (or world), but he made them go to Texas A&M...

the Bob Newhart show mentions the Texas Texas A&M football game on its thanksgiving show. It aired originally in the 1970,s.

I believe that was in the 2nd one when Biff is confirming whether his "sport book" is real or not. He's listening to sport radio and comparing the football scores to what the book says and there is a mention A&M beat Rice...and the score.

In WHAT'S UP, DOC? Barbra Streisand's character had gone to veterinary school at A&M but didn't graduate.

Re: East Gate Live

Excellent venue... saw Eric Johnson there many moons ago (circa '87).

A few years back Conan had a running joke for awhile about the show having a pick in the NBA draft (or maybe they just adopted him or something). Either way, the guy was from A&M, and I think they had him doing general office tasks for them. I don't remember too much about it - I think I was still in high school but knew I was going to A&M so it got my attention.

Speaking of Conan, "Triumph the Insult Comic Dog"'s sexually confused son mentions wanting to attend Texas A&M during a Christmas special. This was around the time when Landover Baptist was calling A&M a "f@g school."

The episode of King of the Hill where he takes his mom and 3 of her friends to Port Aransas over spring break, and all the college kids show up. Two kids walk into a bar where Hank is drinking...one has an A&M shirt and one a tu shirt. I'm sure there's other King of the Hill A&M references, but that's the only one I could think of.

The kid in Sidekicks with Chuck Norris wore an A&M sweatshirt:

Close, it was the AFFDT... it was flimed in early fall, and the fish drill team sucked. It was all former fish drill team members.

Sidekicks should have its own forum. That is the best worst movie of all time.

The Onion (satirical newspaper) ran a story and I can't remember the exact headline, but something like that Christ Returns to the NBA (playing on Michael Jordan's return and Christ's second coming). It had an infographic of Christ's basketball highlights and one of them was that he played for TAMU when they won the national championship in the 1980's (of course this was made up). It also had a great picture of Jesus doing a massive dunk. Sacriligious for sure, but a A&M pop culture reference.

Also, the guy who played Ted Baxter (spinoff series from the Mary Tyler Moore Show) wore an A&M sweatshirt in one of his shows. Can't remember the name of the series, but he had two daughters and it took place in San Francisco.......

I think the first Moon landing (well known fake) was shot(secretly) entirely at Junction. Does that count?

The Corps made up a huge number of the extras in Courage Under Fire (military base scenes). Filmed in either fall 95 or spring of 96 (aka my fish year). I couldn't go, but a bunch of others did.
