Graduate students at Texas A&M finally have their own wildcat.

For decades, A&M graduate students have co-opted an undergraduate wildcat cheer, a class-specific noise and hand motion that follows Aggie yells.

    This is idiotic. It makes no sense when you take the traditionally held back story of the wildcat. Essentially each wildcat is traced back to when wild cats roamed around campus and cadets would hunt them. Freshman ran away scared "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA". Sophomores shot and missed everything. "A-A-A-A-A" (also should be done quickly not slowly). Juniors would shoot a few times and then hit with Whoop being an indication that the target was hit. "A-A-A Whoop!" And seniors had the experience of being crack shots "A-Whoop!' And if you have ever been around seniors the "A" is all but forgotten. Everybody pretty much just straight Whoops. A grad wildcat isn't necessary.

    I wonder if the new yell is due to the outsource effort at TAMU? Irregardless, we are all saving $$$.

    A. Aggies don't "cheer". Aggies "YELL"!
    B. Must REALLY be a slow news day.

    Since apparently this is a "progression" of wildcats, are we to assume that grad students that did undergrad outside of A&M have to start with the freshman wildcat? Since 5th year seniors have the same amount of schooling, should they do the grad wildcat too?

    Slim,
    Young folk can multitask. I'm sure they think you should take a break from making agonizingly boring, useless comments at the Eagle website.

    Be sure also to read/listen to this story about the growing number of PhD's on food stamps:

    I realize the guy in the article is a MS student but the same applies for him---especially getting a degree in a non-STEM discipline.

    These people don't have enough work to do for their dissertations. Instead of wildcat cheers, I would suggest applying for a fellowship.
