The Texas A&M Aggies are really excited to join the SEC. Just think of all those great road trips to Florida, Alabama and...North Carolina?
Apparently the Aggies think North Carolina has a team in the SEC, because they included it on a league map featured on a shirt that went up for sale today.
"We may be new to the conference, but we aren't new to the game," the shirt says. It features the SEC logo and a map of states purportedly in the conference.
Maybe the Ags were hoping to play Duke.
The Aggies also forgot Missouri, which also is a new kid on the SEC block.
And if you're thinking they forgot Texas, don't worry -- it's on the back.
And -- to give credit where credit is due -- the rest of the states on the shirt do have SEC teams. So in terms of batting average, the Aggies did pretty good.
