    Re: Nick Saban Better than Coach Bryant with win?

    I am curious about the Gig'em saying myself. Don't have a clue what that is supposed to mean. Does aTm have some sort of hand jesture they do? I noticed a lot of the Texas schools have hand jestures I.E. UT hook'um horns and Texas Tech guns up and TCU horned frog thing they do. Just curious.

    Actually Darrell Royal won the 1963 and 1969 NCs with an all white team and was UPI National Champion in 1970. The 1970 team was integrated.

    From Texas Aggie Traditions -

    This tradition began at a 1930 Midnight Yell Practice held before the football game against the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs. In an attempt to excite the crowd, Pinky Downs, a 1906 Texas A&M graduate and member of the school's Board of Regents, asked "What are we going to do to those Horned Frogs?"Using a term for frog hunting, he answered his own question, "Gig 'em, Aggies!" For emphasis, he made a fist with the thumb extended. The phrase and hand signal proved popular, and it became the first hand sign of the Southwest Conference.
