Last year and this year I've only been listening to the radio broadcasts.. haven't watched any games on television.

Did this just start this season? Has every home game had the town listed like that on the broadcast? Idk man, I think it's kinda tacky.

A&M has directed media to say that the university is in Bryan-College Station given the presence in both cities. Been that way for about a year.

Isn't it technically called Bryan-College Station these days instead of 2 separate cities?

Nope. Two separate cities. And I don't ever see them merging.

I've lived in College Statio for 73 years. There was a time when Bryan looked down their noses at us. The table turned when the economy took a dowturnduring the first oil bust. Downtown Bryan was a ghost tow. They the turned their attention toward CS. There was even talk about joining the two cities. Too many of us voiced our displeasure so it never came about. College Station has flourished and Bryan still takes a back seat.

Who could forget the battle between Bryan and College Station in 1893? That set the boundaries between the two cities which remains to this very day. Pretty crazy that close to 300 died. Strange that never comes up much in A&M history.

College Station is just a suburb. Bryan is a city with character that gets better all the time. In the past, Bryan lagged behind but not anymore. If you live in BCS for any amount of time you'd see what was happening.

It turned because of one thing: white flight. Nothing to be proud of. Thousands of acres of A&M are now inside Bryan city limits. To say "A&M Bryan-College Station" is the truth. Anything else is a lie. Anyway, A&M was at Bryan before there was a College Station. Bryan businessmen pooled their resources to buy land and give it for purpose of establishment of A&M. On the oldest plats is written "Texas A&M College Bryan."

The official name of the metropolitan area as designated by the US Census Bureau is College Station-Bryan and has been since College Station passed Bryan in population.

Kyle Field is in College Station. When you write a letter to someone living on campus (which is where Kyle Field is), you don't write "Bryan - College Station, Texas 77843"

It's fine to refer to the area as Bryan - College Station but for the purposes of being specific, College Station is where it's at.

It's Bryan - College Station

But for the purposes of Kyle Field, that is in College Station. Should not be co-stated.
That's likely just done for hotel purposes, so people don't think Motel 6 is too far away.

Many schools sit on the footprint of several cities but until seeing this, only Illinois at Champaign-Urbana went out of its way to be clear about it.

Seems like something stupid that Sharp came up with. Like making the University seal have the athletic T A&M on it which looks bad and amateurish.

Sharp's daily goal is to make Texas A&M just like every other university. Sad!!

Our University folks know nothing about branding.....Every change they make dilutes the brand - doesn't enhance it.

a small footnote to that tragic time was that at the time Boonville, known to be an ally of Bryan was so angry over the railroad controversy, refused to come to Bryan's aid and would not send any of their young men to help in the fight. Repercussions from Bryan afterwards had devastating impacts on Boonville's economy which they have never recovered from.

College Station used to just be a train train station called The College Station. It was the train stop for folks going to and from the college; faculty and staff lived in Bryan.

While I agree that the university has a presence in both cities, I'm still trying to figure out what part of Kyle Field is not in College Station.

"WHEREAS, Aggieland has grown beyond the boundaries of any one municipality; and

WHEREAS, the City of College Station and the City of Bryan have had an entwined history since
the City of College Station was incorporated in 1938; and

WHEREAS, Bryan and Texas A&M University's historical ties go back to 1871, when Bryan was incorporated and the Texas Legislature established the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas; and

WHEREAS, College Station and Texas A&M University are synonymous, with the city owing
its name and existence to the Agricultural and Mechanical College's location along the Houston and Texas Central Railroad, receiving the designation "College Station, Texas" by the U.S. Postal Service in 1877; and

WHEREAS, the City of College Station was incorporated after a petition was submitted to the
A&M College of Texas board of directors, and the first city council was comprised of A&M faculty members and met in the administration building; and

WHEREAS, Kyle Field, home to Aggie Football since 1905, is located in College Station, and
in 2013 College Station guaranteed up to $36 million in hotel tax revenues toward the renovation
of Kyle Field; and

WHEREAS, Bryan Army Air Field was used as the Texas A&M University Annex for incoming
Corps of Cadets freshmen and returning veterans in 1946; and
WHEREAS, in 1962, Bryan Air Force Base was deeded to Texas A&M University, adding 1,991 acres; and

WHEREAS, the former Bryan Air Force Base was operated as the Texas A&M University
Research and Extension Center for a quarter of a century before being designated as the Texas A&M University Riverside Campus in 1988; and

WHEREAS, the Texas A&M University Riverside Campus grew into the Texas A&M University
Research Annex before transforming into the RELLIS Campus in 2016, home to Texas A&M University System entities including ten regional universities, the Texas A&M Engineering

WHEREAS, recognizing that over the past decade, Texas A&M University and The Texas A&M
University System have expanded into the City of Bryan with seven Texas A&M University System colleges, ten Texas A&M University System universities and multiple Texas A&M University System state agencies on more than 2,200 acres with more than $1 billion in investment; and

WHEREAS, Texas A&M University will always be the institution's official name; and

WHEREAS, there is no intent to change the university's official name; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, that the Chancellor of The Texas A&M University System and the President of Texas A&M University will use "Bryan-College Station" only in any general location references where College Station would have been used in the past, including references at
all sporting events, academic events, press releases, marketing collateral, letterhead, and other

Hated hearing that the other night. Sounds so stupid. A&M was founded on College Station. Bryan is a dump
