If you didn’t know, Texas A&M is the newest member of the SEC, a college football powerhouse conference with a rich athletic tradition that extends from Tennessee to Alabama to South Carolina, and so forth.
Each school is filled with pride and each receives strong supports from fans, students and alum. However, Texas A&M would like to sully all those traditions and mock all the strong support that fellow SEC schools receive, as evidenced by their recent video, which attempted to give itself a warm welcome into the conference. Just … watch:
The intention here was to be as kind and cordial as possible. Texas A&M is grateful to be a part of the cash cow that is the SEC, and is really trying to get into each school’s good graces.
Instead, they’ve probably embarrassed themselves to no end. If the goal was to make each school’s cheer sound as boring, dry, and dorky as possible, then they’ve done a hell of a job.
We get it, Texas A&M. You want your new rival schools to love and respect you, and you want to make sure they know that you respect them. But remarkably, you’ve managed to somehow enter into the SEC with a splash that saw the water accidentally landed in the plate of food that the girl you have had a crush on since sixth grade was holding.
Somehow, A&M has managed to negate all the future trash-talking your students will direct at the other SEC schools, because no Aggie will ever be able to live this down.
