It's sappy and smarmy, but thanks for being a wonderful mom and wonderful Aggie. That's all.

You are in the minority.918AGG wrote: ↑December 12th, 2020, 9:38 amI was raised to be an Aggie. I'll always be an Aggie. I'm not going anywhere, but today, I'm ashamed to be an Aggie.
This year, I was somehow excited to watch a 1-5 football team get blown out on the road. This is a new low, and an incredibly unpalatable dog turd from a team of totally inept, talentless, heads-up-their-a**es, uninspired players and coaches. And to think: I actually wanted to support them!
I don't understand Frank Maile's silence right now. If I was Frank, I'd be absolutely embarrassed. He was either severely discriminated against (as apparently only evidenced by an unrecorded Zoom meeting held by a small group of 20-somethings) or he's an absolute snake oil salesman.
I call bulls*** on his whole "leader" charade. At this point, I'm entitled to believe that he's an absolute fraud and a selfish, silent enabler. Frank's role as the interim coach is to get the guys ready for war on the football field. He has failed on multiple occasions, and he failed today. With one phone call, one text, one meeting - he could (allegedly) have this team representing USU (poorly... so maybe we actually owe him something here...).
We've learned from history that effective protests are made when players actually show up, ball out, and use that spotlight to shine a light on discrimination. Jackie Robinson, Tommie Smith, John Carlos and Colin Kapernick all come to mind immediately. Maybe I'm wrong, but maybe a part of being effective is actually showing up.
It's 21 degrees and snowy in Fort Collins, CO right now. We were heavy dogs before the game. We're down scads of players and coaches. We have nothing (other than "warm fuzzies") to gain from getting a win today.
Not Objectively Known: What was actually said to bring this on. You'd think that something that was actually horribly, disgustingly offensive would be very easily tweet-able, meme-able, reddit-able, e-mail-able, text-able, etc. We haven't seen anything like that yet - only super well-scripted statements from a snake oil salesman (Frank, is that you?).
Most likely: We are a talentless, heartless, valueless, easily offended, dumb lot who would rather play Cyberpunk 2077 and eat Nacho Cheese Doritos than fight on the football field for our Alma Mater.
I'm ashamed to be an Aggie today. Good riddance, Frank.
