The Maroon Out game: the one tradition the Corps of Cadets can never get right. This year, Aggies will once again flood into Kyle Field in a monochromatic ocean that can only be experienced at the Maroon Out game, or at any other home game.
Every year, Maroon Out is a highly anticipated event among Aggies, and people who cannot think for themselves. Jason Blythe, former Maroon Out director, explains the value of this organization’s great campus service.
“Without Maroon Out how would students know what color to wear to games?” Blythe said. “We make it easy for them– the color is right there in the name of our organization. Plus, without us, where would people even get maroon shirts? They don’t sell them just anywhere.”
Wearing maroon is the perfect way to show off the 12th Man spirit that is so highly prized among Aggies, and so cheaply rented out to Seattle. If you are the one student who does not already own a maroon shirt, then Maroon Out is here to sell you one. If you are any other student, then Maroon Out is here to be the shirt-shaped trash can you’ll throw $8 into.
The Maroon Out directors announced a series of changes this year. For the first time ever, there will be Maroon Out games for both volleyball and soccer. There will also be long sleeve Maroon Out shirts available. These additions make sense because Texas is known for having lots of cold weather and soccer fans.
In addition to long sleeve shirts, the directors have announced an entire line of Maroon Out fashion accessories. The collection will feature items such as the “Maroon-Out-Of-Style”: the official Maroon Out scrunchie; “Maroon-5-Out”: the official Maroon Out hair gel and DIY tattoo kit; and “Maroon-In-And-Out”: the official Maroon Out condoms.
