Culture War on the Gridiron

Tomorrow the Culture War will be fought on a football field when Moonbat University, aka Cal-Berkeley, meets Texas A&M in the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl in San Diego. The Union-Tribune highlights a few of the differences between the schools, including these:

School bosses:
Texas A&M: The school president, Robert Gates, was recently chosen by President Bush to supervise the war in Iraq as the new Secretary of Defense.
Cal: Chancellor Robert Birgeneau, a native of Toronto, lists on his curriculum vitae an editorial he once wrote for the Toronto Star entitled "Celebrating Sexual Diversity."
Texas A&M: Several places serve well-cooked dead animals in College Station, especially C&J Barbecue, which serves jalapeƱo cheese sausage, pork loin and ribs.
Cal: The Free Speech Movement Cafe at the library boasts that its "coffee is Fair Trade and organic, and tea is organic and Fair Trade when possible. The menu is a manifestation of the ideals inherent in the Free Speech Movement ... through this philosophy, students become conscious that their choice for food is a political choice as well."
Campus faces:
Texas A&M: Football games are attended by former President George H.W. Bush, whose presidential library is located on campus.
Cal: A student became known as "The Naked Guy" in the 1990s by attending classes nude.
Texas A&M: Students can take a class called "Amphibious Warfare."
Cal: Students can enroll in "Introduction to Nonviolence."
Military history:
Texas A&M: The school opened in 1876 as the Agricultural and Mechanical (A&M) College of Texas, with mandated military training. Its Corps of Cadets remains the largest uniformed body of students in the nation outside the U.S. service academies, according to its Web site.
Cal: Students formed the epicenter of the antiwar movement in the 1960s as the Vietnam War raged on. In 1965, hundreds tried to stop trains of troops by standing on the tracks in West Berkeley.

Let's hope the guys on the field aren't representative of the student body, or it won't be much of a game.

Texas A&M.

I'm rooting for Texas A&M.

Let's just hope that A&M kicks their hippy stooge asses back into the Stone Age .... Oops, someone beat'em to it.

I'm suprised Cal even fields a football team. Too violent and primative, don't you know? But--incredibly, they are very good. Gig 'em Aggies. (And this from a Longhorn--Class of '81.)
