I think Clemson's cannons (Tom & Jerry) have a good 100 years on their howitzer but not as deadly.

Here are the specs on Tom & Jerry

It probably dispersed toxic gases into the atmosphere that will drift in prevailing wind currents to the eastern seaboard and KILL sea turtles!

Way to go maroons.

It was very cool. That is a great picture. We were sitting in the endzone opposite it and it looked like it was coming straight toward us. And man was that thing loud.

The night before, we attended the Midnight Yell, and were mostly bewildered by what was going on with the crowd. We had no idea that gun was there, and then without any warning, that dang thing went off - not too far from where we were standing. It startled the crap out of us. That is one heck of a noise maker!

It was impressive especially how long it lasted. The entire A&M experience was outstanding.
