The Aggies Are Full of S*#!% About Tech Fans
Texas A&M athletic director Bill Byrne was highly upset with Texas Tech fans this weekend:
The horrendous and extensive vandalism took place outside what is no doubt Lubbock's finest hotel as the Aggies visited to play Texas Tech.
Terrible. Except Tech has done its own investigation, and discovered a few inaccuracies in Byrne's account.
No vulgarities were spray-painted -- one bus had some erasable shoe polish on it. Also, despite Byrne telling reporters that "manure went 'from one end to the other' in one bus and was spread on the outside of three others," there was no manure, or dogshit, or human shit, found.
There was some fish bait on the floor of one bus. (All of this was cleaned up before the Aggies knew about it, Tech says.) The Aggies haven't responded to Tech's statement about what happened.
Maybe Byrne confused his "shit or get off the pot" and "fish or cut bait" sayings, or maybe Aggies don't know the difference between shit and fish bait. Or maybe they just exaggerate.
