He uses it as a criticism in this article. Is a "country/western" or "rock n roll" team better than a "hip hop" team?

Old white dude is old

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he meant they were more worried about listening to the music during practice than getting to work...as was highlighted in the offseason by aggie athletics.

Socially acceptable racism, with a shot of ageism.

Cessna is old and white. OP is young, soft and a ******bag. Sad that so many young adult males are such pu$$ies. Truly sad. Hopefully his balls drop some day.

The answer to your first question is yes. Those are both better. The "hip hop culture" is the single biggest failed "culture" in our country today. Single parent homes, the only way out is sports, etc. Its an absolute **** show.

I think we can all admit that regardless of musical preference a "country western" or even a "bro country" team is not what we want.

EliteZags hit it - All flash and no substance. At least, that is what I'm gleaning. Poor analogy by Cessna. But, really, he is a small town writer covering football at a highly conservative school in Texas. Not really, shocking.

The "millenial" dogpile in this thread is pretty funny. Good job, Zoo. Never change.

And, personally, I prefer a punk rock football team. Of course, that means the team would just be strung out on drugs with a whole lot of dyed hair. I don't think that translates to a lot of Ws, but it would give some of the aforementioned dogpilers heart attacks which wouldn't be a bad thing.

kisses.

I wonder what image you think A&M casts when black aggies are told to stop being histrionic when we express our concern with some of the viewpoints espoused by other aggies.

That backwards reputation we have? That's where it comes from. You'd be amazed how often I have to clarify "Yes, I went to THAT Texas A&M".

No problem calling a spade a spade. And we have a lot of spades.

Hip and hip hop culture is trash. Blues music is fantastic and the stories they tell are fantastic.


Both are forms of predominantly black music. But if you attack one and not the other it's "racist". Why is that?

I think Cessna is just pointing out that Sumlin tried to win by juicing up recruiting via a sleek and cool program image.

Remember this NY Times article?

https://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/30/sports/ncaafootball/with-rap-music-and-a-chopper-texas-ams-kevin-sumlin-is-a-cool-customer.html

With Rap Music and a Chopper, Texas A&M's Kevin Sumlin Is a Cool Customer

COLLEGE STATION, Texas A visit to a Texas A&M football practice is musically akin to a trip to a swanky hip-hop club in downtown Houston or a hot spot on Miami's South Beach. The Aggies opened fall practice with the rapper Drake's dis of his fellow rapper Meek Mill, "Back to Back," as a prelude to several other tunes on the cutting edge of rap.

In the middle of the bobbing heads of more than 100 young men in their late teens and early 20s was Kevin Sumlin, who, at 51, just might be the coolest coach in college football. Just to be clear, Sumlin did not party with the rapper Rick Ross and the Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel during the weekend of the 2013 national championship game. But the fact that Sumlin had to debunk such a story speaks to his place within the hierarchy of college football coolness.

So rather than search for hidden racist subtext, maybe we can just agree Sumlin used Hip Hop music as one of his tools to be the most relatable and cool guy to recruits.

We even had a badass DJ right?

For the ongoing criticisms of millenials, its clear that non-millenials can certainly be snowflakes too. Stop trying to make everything about being a offended millenial. You'll be much happier and enjoy life much more...

If anything, OP tries makes a bad joke --- the fact that some of y'all are jumping at him for being "offended" is demonstrating you own bias, like you are LOOKING for reasons to ***** about millenials (even in an instance where there is nothing to ***** about).

As to the OP's question, Cessna is trying to be cute in saying that the team was full of trend and flash (Hip Hop) with no grit.

Irrelevant.

Also strikingly tone deaf considering that the topic is minimizing the experiences of black aggies and here you are attempting to find some reason to minimize mine. Let me guess, if they don't think A&M is pure and blameless that they're Beto voters or whiny millennials?

I mean, it's like you just laid yourself out in front of me. Brutal.
