WHILE NO campus is more friendly (the school's official greeting is Howdy, for gosh sake), few venues are more hostile to opponents than the maroon bowl of Kyle Field, where the eardrums of visiting players are under constant assault from the Aggies' 12th Man—the nation's best-drilled student body. Standing throughout the game, responding to hand signals from five yell leaders, A&M fans shout such intimidating—and perplexing—phrases as "Hullabaloo Caneck Caneck!" and "Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem, Rough! Tough! Real Stuff! Texas A&M!"
The Aggies aren't always so martial. When the lights go down at Midnight Yell, students with dates steal kisses, or mug down in Aggie parlance. Just as Midnight Yell is better when you have a date, A&M's grand traditions are grander still when the team is up, as it should be in 2011. The Aggies may be back, but the 12th Man never left, never so much as took a seat.
