    Texas A&M University's first openly gay student body president is set to take office next month, marking a milestone for the largest public university in the state. Bobby Brooks, an economics junior at the flagship campus in College Station, was elected by A&M students as the university's 74th student body president March 9. In an interview published Sunday in The Battalion, the student newspaper, Brooks said he "was fulfilling the dream I had been building since my freshman year," and added he wanted his victory to reflect his readiness to lead.

    Richard Spencer, white nationalist and creator of the term “alt-right,” will be speaking in Rudder Tower this December. Spencer will be speaking on the alt-right movement, a radical offshoot of conservatism which promotes white identity and white nationalism. Spencer’s speech will be focusing on explaining what the alt-right is, and how he believes this movement will affect the United States. Recently, video of a speech Spencer gave at a conference for the National Policy Institute, a think tank for white nationalists and the alt-right, circulated around the internet. Much of the speech included anti-semitic remarks and Nazi rhetoric. At the...

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Texas A&M student assistant coach Michael Richardson was sent home early from the Aggies' appearance in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl after hitting West Virginia players in the first half of Texas A&M's 45-37 win on Monday at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. Cameras showed Richardson striking West Virginia players who ventured out of bounds during the first half on two separate occasions. He used his elbow to strike Mountaineer cornerback Daryl Worley in the back of the head and shoved running back Andrew Buie in another incident.

    Empower Texans ^ | 12/07/2013 | Michael Quinn Sullican
    Everyone laughed when Texas A&M went and bought itself a law school. Now the joke really is on conservative Aggies, with word that the dean selection committee includes a professor who says the Second Amendment should be repealed and tells students that the U.S. Constitution is outdated. One can only wonder what prominent, pro-gun, pro-constitution conservative Aggie officials like Governor Rick Perry, Attorney General-hopeful Barry Smitherman, Lieutenant Governor-hopefuls Jerry Patterson and Todd Staples have to say about the decidedly out-there views of Professor Mary Margaret “Meg” Penrose. Or even about the circumstances that allowed her to be among those deciding...

    At this point of the college football season, with some crucial games still on tap for this weekend, the frontrunners in the Heisman race are A&M's sensational freshman QB Johnny Manziel and game-changer Manti Te'o of Notre Dame. Still in the hunt was once heavily-favored Colin Klein of Kansas State. Vanishing completely after an impressive start is West Virginia's Geno Smith. I'd personally like to see Johnny Manziel win the trophy this year and the odds are evidently in his favor. But, to play the part of a contrarian, here's what could derail the hopes of those backing him for...

    OK, there was that $16-million budget deficit. I believe that may have been taken care of. Now the fired coach is owed $8.8 million, while the new coach is going to want at least $3 million a year, possibly closer to $4 million if the Aggies get into a bidding war for Kevin Sumlin. Does anyone know if Coach Fran has been paid off yet? He got himself a very nice parting gift. Speaking of parting gift, there’s that whole Big 12 exit fee. I’ve heard numbers ranging from $5 million to $12 million. I’m not sure what the final...

    COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M University officials are trying to lure more students to take summer classes by slashing tuition in half. Under the experimental program, tuition for undergraduates who are Texas residents will drop from $156 to $75 per credit hour in the second summer school session of 2008. University officials and state lawmakers say the move could reduce the time students take to earn a bachelor's degree. If students graduate sooner, they free up seats for more incoming students. ..................... A similar offer at California universities six years ago led to several campuses seeing sizable gains in...

    COLLEGE STATION - Josh Carter scored 24 points and Acie Law added 21 points and 15 assists, leading No. 6 Texas A&M to a 100-82 victory over Texas on Monday night. The Aggies, coming off a big win at then-No. 6 Kansas on Saturday, won their 21st straight home game and maintained sole possession of first place in the Big 12. Kevin Durant had 28 points and 15 rebounds for the Longhorns (16-7, 6-3 Big 12), but the Aggies finally found some scoring punch to go with one of the nation's stingiest defenses - and that was too much...

    LAWRENCE, Kan. - Acie Law scored 23 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 21 seconds left, and No. 10 Texas A&M took over first place in the Big 12 with a 69-66 victory Saturday night over No. 6 Kansas. The Jayhawks (19-4 overall, 6-2 Big 12) went up 62-52 with 6:33 to play on Sasha Kaun's baseline hook shot. But then Law led the Aggies on a 12-2 spree, capped by a three-point play by Antanas Kavaliauskas that made it 64-all with a minute to play. Julian Wright worked inside for a bank shot with 45 seconds left that...

    A local district judge on Monday signed a temporary restraining order against the Seattle Seahawks, directing them to stop using the 12th Man slogan until a ruling is made on whether it is a licensed trademark belonging to Texas A&M University. The restraining order, filed by A&M and signed by District Judge J.D. Langley, sets a 1:30 p.m. Thursday hearing in the 85th District Court at the Brazos County Courthouse. Seattle, which will play Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XL on Sunday in Detroit, has received national attention in recent weeks for its devoted fans, whom it calls the 12th Man....

    The Seattle Seahawks are facing the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl, but they have an off-the-field battle brewing with Texas A&M University. School officials are upset with the Seahawks' use of the "12th Man" theme to recognize their fan support. A&M has legal claims to the "12th Man" moniker, a school tradition that dates to the 1920s. The Seahawks have celebrated their fans as a "12th Man" since the 1980s, when they used to turn the now-demolished Kingdome into one of the NFL's loudest venues. The team retired the No. 12 in 1984. Now, a No. 12 flag waves...
