It seems as though there’s no love between Rice University in Houston and Texas A&M, with the more academic-minded students at Rice typically looking down their noses at A&M’s “Aggies.”
Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently one of the best known A&M alumni, having graduated in 1972 with a 2.4 grade point average and a degree in animal sciences.
“This was not the brightest guy around,” a former classmate told the Huffington Post. “We always kind of laughed. He was always kind of a joke.”
Now Rice’s Marching Owl Band has taken a shot of their own at Perry’s intelligence, telling a stadium full of cheering spectators, “The next time you go to the polls, ask yourself, ‘Is your candidate smarter than an Aggie?’”
