COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Which way to the Southeastern Conference?
A Texas-based apparel company, Aggieland Outfitters, recalled a handful of T-shirts on Tuesday after they were ridiculed online for having some geographic mistakes.
The maroon shirt has an "SEC" logo emblazoned on a United States section map, ostensibly representing members of the league.
But North Carolina, which is not in the conference, is on the map. Missouri, however, is not.
Missouri and Texas A&M are both leaving the Big 12 for the SEC this season.
The shirt was produced by Aggieland Outfitters, which has three outlets in College Station. A&M spokesman Jason Cook said the company is a private business and not affiliated with the school.
Aggieland Outfitters marketing director Dallas Shipp said only "a few dozen" shirts were printed and they've been taken off the shelves and the company's website.
He said the original shirt design did not include North Carolina, but when the artist drew the map, it was added by mistake.
"We would like to apologize for a T-shirt that has come under fire for its inaccuracies," the company said. "Many members of the media, especially those connected to other schools in Texas, have insinuated that Texas A&M made these shirts, and that Texas A&M doesn't know geography.
"That's simply not true. Aggieland Outfitters designed the shirt and simply made a mistake."
You have to admire the ags for consistency.
I wasn't going to say anything after the first, the second, the third, fourth or fifth, but damn--six threads on this stupid story?
Think we need another lucky number sleve dont ya think?

Think we have a lot of newbies showing up (that's a good thing by the way) and people aren't searching to make sure not to dp.
Besides, bashing the knuckleheads in b/cs is our right, they make it too easy.
Sorry about that.....and thanks for the understanding. Guilty on the newbie and double posting.
You would think they would include the states of Texas and Missouri though......
perhaps they can give them to their t-shirt fans to wear at Maroon Out. .
"He said the original shirt design did not include North Carolina, but when the artist drew the map, it was added by mistake."
this reminds of a show on ID i'm watching called "the woman that wasn't there."
leaving Texas off when aTm is the new SEC member from the state is just as funny as including North Carolina.
Youre forgivin. I see its not your first post but welcome!!
Agree, tired of hearing about them. Just want them to go away.
Another four or five threads on the subject required, IMO.
Apparently Texas is on the back and it says something about get ready for Texas football. Someone needs to tell them that they will never represent football for our state. And leaving off Mizzou is just as turrible as putting North Carolina on there.

No worries bud, no worries.
1. Welcome aboard to the best Longhorn website anywhere.
2. Making fun of aggy misery is accepted and welcomed.
3. Post more
Gave you one for being so apologetic. The ags will continue to be ags. Nuff said.
This is the 1st time I've seen it.
You can't have too many posts on aggy ignorance in my humble opinion.
9 and 4 at Texas sucks!

Bruce7 has a new handle?
here ya go
Muchos Gracias C-Horn!
Maybe they plan to move to Louisiana.
I just so hate to have to continue to educate you guys. Really, didn't you guys go to college? Didn't you learn to read?
The Texas A&M Aggies have said all along they are "moving to the SEC". Now i ask you, is the SEC in Texas? No of course not
Ergo (see, i did go to college and know them latin words and stuff). The Texas A&M Aggies are moving out of Texas. Apparently they are moving to North Carolina as NC is on this Tshirt, and there is no SEC school there. They must have wanted in the SEC too. So lets thank NC for stepping up and taking the Texas A&M aggies, who we can now of course refer to as the Texas A&M at North Carolina Aggies.
. (I have no clue where UM is moving but they obviously are leaving the great state of MO, as that is not on this Tshirt either)
i really wish you folks would keep up
Well.....given that I now live in North Carolina......I am going to vote Hell No on the ags moving here. There are enough idiots at the beach!
