Ah, Yes. The College Football Stadium

I remember back in the 1980s when some Aggie drew his sword on some SMU cheerleaders (stay serious here) when the girls tried to run onto the field after a game. The grass at Kyle Field, the Corp of Cadets said, was sacred ground. The Evil Empire reveres its field so much that they named it after a plaintiff's lawyer (and one who was involved in the craziest deposition ever). Baylor cares so much about its football field that they try not to touch the grass in the end zones. And at Texas Tech.............Oh, my.

I'm with Tech. What's such a big deal about a bunch of grass? Those aggs are a bit over the top!

Yeah, but it's artificial turf, so no worries about killing the grass

GO YELLOW RAIDERS!

They probably heard this when the pic was posted: "Urine a heap (stream?) of trouble now!"

Clarification: There is a fieldhouse at the south end of UT's stadium named after Joe Jamail, the legendary plaintiff's lawyer. The stadium itself is Darrell K. Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium, named after the legendary coach. It's a little slice of heaven there, hombre. Baylor has a real cute stadium, so don't feel too bad.

Whats up with that deposition? I wouldnt talk to anyone talking to me like that and does that happen often? Since when did sailors become lawyers?

That depo was before lawyers ran marathons I guess.

We need A&M and Baylor out of the Big 12 - bringing down the conference. A better choice than these two would be TCU.

Picture looks like a UFO over the evil empire. Kind of explains the whole Vince Young era.

My bad on the UFO sighting, that is Lubbock. Now it makes more sense.

Beam me up.

Apparently that license to practice law conveys with it the power of invulnerability -- sort of like having too much to drink.

Barry -

Loved the deposition video, but I cannot find the invectives *!@^/#&+ or ^$#@+* in the legal dictionary. Am I looking in the wrong place?

Also, I attended the SMU-A&M game where the sword came out. Tense moments. Thought Peruna would be pony burger for a moment.

Okay Green I have just retained Joe Jamail to sue your ass over the obviously fake PHOTO SHOPPED photo of our two athletes at TT - Jones Stadium. You have 1 hour to remove it or Joe will be noticing you for a deposition.

"Jamail has made his millions, but he has done it with immense compassion for those who need his help most-the little as well as the big guys. There may be another king of torts someday, but there will never be another Joe Jamail."-Houston Press

Whatever- on all counts.

When Leach is the coach I think pretty much anything goes..Have you ever watched one of his interviews? I'm alumni and I think he's a great coach, but a little off at times....He's a lawyer you know.

Kyle Field is a war memorial and all visiting school representatives are clearly told this and asked to stay off of the field to honor this tradition. NO, drawn swords are not the answer and there is no way to justify this one college kid's indescretion. And, yes it is just grass. But I ask any military man, say Jarhead, how do you feel about someone knowingly dishonoring a war hero's grave? Why I bet you would draw down on anyone who desecrated any of TCU's honored halls, like for example their new proposed Gay Dorm.

I bet that helps their cause to get in The Big 12.

BG is right. The field at Darrell K. Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium is named after Joe Jamail, the athletic complex at the south end of the field is named Moncrief - Neuhaus Athletic Complex.

Wow...what a great rant from the great Gordo!!!

Hey 12:03: it's JUST GRASS, war memorial or not. What a crock!

Jarhead said...

Kyle Field is a FOOTBALL STADIUM! Are there really dead guys buried there? I'm being serious. I really don't know.

If it is a "war memorial" as you state, then why would you dishonor the memory of so many fallen Ags by playing such incredibly bad football in said memorial?

I have really good friends that are Aggies, but they are an odd bunch of ducks.

I'm proud of TCU's gay dorm. Our school colors are changing from purple to pink. And I don't think there are any "honored halls" on South University.

You may call me Your Majesty. In fact, I insist. said...

My Bus. Law prof. played that deposition in class. I love it.

Anonymous said...

Maybe Aggies are so dumb they actually believe there are dead guys under their field? Either way, doesn't matter...it's JUST GRASS!

Kyle Field is not a war memorial, but it's very special to every Aggie. We are one of the only universities still left with a football field made of grass.

It is, however, across the street from the Memorial Student Center, which is an honor to Aggies that have fallen in the military. We request that you do not walk on the grass at the MSC.

just clear things up...

Oops, commented on the wrong entry. Love the deposition vid! A bunch of typically overpaid lawyers arguing with an old fella! Priceless!
