    Default Tarleton State Drops “TexAnns” moniker

    Announced last night on WFAA, Tarleton State University will drop the “TexAnns” moniker for women’s sports teams and now be known as “Texans” beginning Fall 2019.

    I heard they were also considering Twin Peaks but settled on Texans.

    Then the Plowboys would have to be the TexAnns..

    I always thought TexAnns was clever.

    Hopefully the ASU women don’t think Rambelles or “Belles” need to be changed in the name feminism.

    That was very clever!

    What I find ironic is the girls WANTED a name change and did not want to be compared to the boys back in the day when modern feminism started........and they were winning while the boys were losing.......fast forward to 2019 and they now want to change back. GEEZ!!!! I guess this is PROGRESS? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    And "they" wonder why "they" struggle in this world! It's simply too hard!

    Why not just call them lambs?

    I've always wondered why schools with dogs as mascots didn't call their ladies' teams the b!tches.

    I thought TexAnns was catchy and unique. Why change?

    Sounds like the Volleyball coach and a couple athletes thought it demeaning and asked to change it and nobody wanted to put up with a political fight and possible bad press if they said no.

    Just be glad the Lady Buffs weren’t originally named the Buffahoes...

    Come on man.... Get with the times! Assigning gender roles based on genetics is so pre 2010..... Tarleton State is only trying to stay ahead of the curve!

    She's quite a piece of work in a number of ways!

    You can't just leave it like that, you've got to explain that! :)

    The volleyball coach had nothing to do with the name change. She was only responding to a question. The issue was brought forth by two female basketball players and a team manager.

    Everyone at the university is very happy with the name change and supports it 100%.

    You have a pretty liberal use of the word “Everyone” and the phrase “100%”.

    You are correct and I should have used different wording. However I have heard nothing negative from anyone about the name change. Everyone I have talked to and heard from are all behind this move.
