Before Alabama and Texas A&M faced off on November 10, 2012, someone in Alabama decided they needed t-shirts made specifically for that game. I have no clue why the nation’s number one ranked team, or anyone affiliated with it, would feel the need to make a special t-shirt for that particular game but they did.
Alabama was ranked number one in the country at the time of kick-off, and they were also the defending national champions. Alabama had also won the national title as recently as 2009 as well.
The 2012 season is Texas A&M’s first as members of the SEC. 2012 is also the first time Texas A&M had traveled to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, for a football game — all the previous meetings between the two schools had been elsewhere.
Due to the circumstances surrounding the game, the creator of this particular t-shirt felt that they should let A&M know that as the newest SEC member, the Aggies were way out of their league.
I am thinking the commemorative t-shirt will actually be more of a keep-sake considering Texas A&M won the game 29-24.
