Welcome to MH.
Here's a Fightin' Texas Aggie that, 68 years ago today, "followed the herd," as you put it.

James Earl Rudder

Rudder took part in the D-Day landings as Commanding Officer of the United States Army's 2nd Ranger Battalion. His U.S. Army Rangers stormed the beach at Pointe du Hoc and, under constant enemy fire, scaled 100-foot (30 meter) cliffs to reach and destroy German gun batteries. The battalion's casualty rate for this perilous mission was greater than 50 percent. Rudder himself was wounded twice during the course of the fighting. In spite of this, they dug in and fought off German counter-attacks for two days until relieved. He and his men helped to successfully establish a beachhead for the Allied forces.

Seven months later, Rudder was assigned to command the 109th Infantry Regiment, which saw key service in the Battle of the Bulge. Rudder became one of the most decorated soldiers of the war, with honors that included the Distinguished Service Cross, Legion of Merit, Silver Star, Bronze Star with Oak Leaf Cluster, Purple Heart with Oak Leaf Cluster, French Legion of Honor with Croix de Guerre and Palm, and Order of Leopold (Belgium) with Croix de Guerre and Palm. By the end of the war, he was a full Colonel and was promoted to Brigadier General of the United States Army Reserves in 1954 and Major General in 1957.

Spent around 8 years in CS, and loved it most days. Lots of great riding close by.

It was a friendly prod from a friendly neighborhood Longhorn. Some of my best friends are Aggies... I figured it was pretty clear that I wasn't being serious. I apologize if I offended your Aggie senses but both schools have produced prominent figures and it was simply a good natured prod at an old rivalry. I guess I would have been better off with something like. "UT doesn't always beat A&M but when we do, we kick them out of the Big 12. "
