In all fairness to fat cow, Texans are known for thinking that everything in their state is "bigger and better" and this:

"Texans are the BEST Climbers!!!!!!" with all its extra exclamation indulgence and grandeur derserves at least a little bit of ridicule. If anything, I would say the best climbers are from CA, CO, and WV or KY. When I think Texas, I think of celebrated executions and behemoth dunces wearing football uniforms. Not climbing. Congrats to the team that did so well. I commend your efforts and work ethic.

Hey, and any photo of Rick Perry is funny as shit! I expected this reaction and welcome them! As to who is best? It was settled on the walls against 30 teams.

Our secret is we have a great coach, John Myrick!!! The man, the climber, the teacher, the leader, the mentor!!!! Our secret Texas Weapon!!

State pride? What purpose could elevating your own state's status in your mind serve other than to place others below you? Typical Texass.

I believe that's why christians call pride one of the seven deadly sins. I'm certainly not a follower of that popular cult but I know Texass is full of believer's in the "word".

I wish Mexico would take back Texas along with most of the south. Sorry Austin.

kidding mostly, spent a lot of time in TX and most of the folk seem quite amiable. with any state you get the ridiculous "my state is better than your state" which is about as clever as "my dad can beat up your dad."

it's cute that they won. i am thinking many large universities don't have a rock climbing club because if they did, the three time reigning champs coming into this comp wouldn't have been the university of central florida.

What else are you going to do for fun in central Florida? Maybe it makes sense.

Dunno about that, Jeff. Where else would they HAVE TO climb in the gym as much as in Florida...

John Myrick is just a great climbing coach and anyone aware of his record with the youth teams he coaches would agree.

true. i looked for the other competing universities, but there is little mention on the interwebs other than that article.

congrats to the UT climbing team for sure. i just think that most universities in the west don't have teams because most climbers (i think) are more connected to the team they have at their local gym of choice. and in most cases, the uni climbing wall in many western towns is not as good as the one at the gym down the street.

Not sure I agree with your conclusion. I think someone can take pride in something and try to elevate its status without having to place it above or below others. For example, I'm constantly try to improve the condition of my body and mind so that I can take pride in its performance, but in no way is it an attempt to place others below me. I'm sure we all have our own take on pride though.

I miss the good ole days when Texas was its own country. It even included quite a bit of the Rocky Mountains back in those days :)

You know James, people have given you a lot of shit in this thread, including me (although I think mine was in a joking nature) and you haven't really said anything negative in return. Good on you, and congrats again to your team, and all involved in their success.

Thank you Mr Face,

Yes I am very proud of this team and for being a Texan. I started climbing in Texas 45 years ago and we have built a very strong, open and friendly community. We have built our relationships with government land owners and created the representative climbing management structures that has been replicated across the US.

We have great climbing at Enchanted Rock, Hueco Tanks and stacks of limestone sport climbing. We even talked Travis County into buying Riemers Ranch and expanding it with additional purchases, providing a great limestone sports craig.

Many Texans were the initial pioneers of Mex climbing at El Potrero Chico, and we are proud to claim the most rowdy, funniest, climber in the one and only Hank Caylor!

Yeah, we Texans tend to be big, loud and proud, but we have a few reasons to be so and we hold nothing but love for our fellow climbers who have not had the joy of true TexMex and Margs!

Cheers,
-james

Howdy folks. No doubt Texas is the best state, with the best people, the best athletes, the best climbers, the best hats and boots, the most freedom, the most retarded governor, the best trolling, and pretty much the best of everything. The rest of ya'll suck longhorn balls. Don't mess with Texas!!!
