    Aggies fan makes big impression on opponents

    COLLEGE STATION – Oklahoma forward Kevin Bookout lined up for a free throw on Tuesday night at Texas A&M – and grimaced. The Jiggler had claimed yet another victim in Reed Arena.





    (William Luther / Express-News)

    Texas A&M basketball fan Nathaniel Cooper.

    “That dude was huge,” said Bookout of shirtless A&M fan Nathaniel Cooper, who tips the scales at a gravity-challenged 310 pounds. “He started shaking and I went, ‘Ugh!’ He was just going nuts.”

    Cooper, who at least offers the formality of a bow tie with his eye-catching ensemble, typically lines up behind the opponent’s basket and quivers, shivers and gyrates during free throws – effectively shaking his moneymakers. His efforts have earned him such nicknames as The Jiggler, Jiggly Puff, Fat Shaker and the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Belly Dancer.

    “People tell me all of the time they love what I’m doing,” Cooper said.

    Well, most, anyway. Cooper said one A&M fan kindly asked that he please, please re-robe.

    “He was an Old Ag who graduated in like 1945,” Cooper said.

    One Internet poster wittily dubbed Cooper’s act as “one big wardrobe malfunction.”

    The A&M basketball team, however, has presented Cooper, a senior sociology major from Copperas Cove, a pair of Aggies shorts and shoes for his, um, services. A&M officials said they briefly discussed asking Cooper to keep his shirt on, but then reasoned that fans show up with painted bare chests and such all of the time at a variety of sporting events.

    “Some people are ashamed of their bodies,” Cooper said. “But I figure that God gave me this body and this personality, so I’d go out and have fun with it.”

    And that attitude has even earned the admiration of Bookout, a standout player for the Sooners.

    “That’s courageous, for him to take his shirt off like that,” Bookout said. “I’m a big boy, too, and I wouldn’t have the courage to do that in front of all of those people.”

    Makes me proud to be an Aggie. I've been wondering why our basketball team is so much better this year.

    Wait 'til ya'll meet up wit' da' Bears. It's gonna be a good game either way.


    As we speak we have a 7'0 center from Senegal on an airplane coming to BU. He should be playing within the next 2 weeks.

    Rated the number 1 NBA prospect out of Africa, and would be a top 40 player if (when ;) ) he plays college ball in the US.


    Can't wait for complete destruction :D


    BTW, Brad and all other Central Texas TB'ers, be watching FSN tomorrow for the Lady Bears---and me! :D Me and ten fellow Bears will have an entire row at the Longhorn Arena, armed with numerous signs and---BROOMS (for the sweep;) ).

    You gonna be wearing your TB shirt or beanie? How about a sign with a reference to TB?

    lol. I'll see what I can come up with. We're not drawing up the signs until in the morning (more females with nice writing around;) ), so I'll try and think of something. I don't have a TB shirt or beanie or I might wear it. Just look for a row of rowdy Baylor kids with signs amongst all of that putrid orange. I'll be wearing a green Baylor shirt that says "Sic'Em" in big yellow letters on the front of it.

    I am taking some inspiration from TB to the games though....

    one of my signs will involve the use of the ">" sign.

    Example:


    Mulk > Conradt

    Don't know who started that, but I've seen it here a lot and it inspired me :D

    Most pitiful game I have ever seen in my entire life. Go up by 4 at the half only to lose by 14 at the end because of hideous play.

    I love my Lady Bears, but that was pitiful.

    He got here Tuesday night. He'll most likely be redshirted this year.

    Check this out: http://probasketball.about.com/od/nbadraft/l/bl_mockdraft_c.htm

    Take a gander at #11 on that list ;)

    I'm not disappointed in the Bear's performance today at all. We lost both of our big men with 6 minutes left in the 2nd period, and at that point the biggest guy on the court was 6'6.

    Considering the fact that we have NO seniors who actually play, one scholarship player returning from last year's squad, and are the most inexperienced team in the nation who plays only 7 men, with the 5 starters each getting more than 30 minutes per game, I don't see HOW we can be disappointed with the performance today. Considering the fact that a little over 2 years ago we lost our entire team and had to start rebuilding, I think we did pretty dang good.

    Ags better watch out when they come to Ferrell though---I guarantee it'll be a battle.

    Dude...none of that impresses me. You know why? We're the Aggies! We've always SUCKED at basketball. This year we have more wins than we've ever had in school history and we just really don't have all that much talent on our team compared to Texas or Kansas. :spit: Our team is maybe 20% talent and 80% scrappiness.

    Yeah, this is true. You have always sucked :D


    Obviously the suckage of your basketball team is rubbing off on other sports too.....35-34 :D


    FYI---right before the half yesterday, Baylor hit a jumper making the score 35-34. You could hear the handful of Baylor fans that were there screaming over the Aggie fans. Absolutely glorious :D

    If you really, really wanna dredge up the past we can go take a look at the overall record of Baylor vs. A&M football games.

    Otherwise.... Texas A&M 74, Baylor 62.

    :D
