COLLEGE STATION, Texas - A geography lesson is always needed before a university joins a new conference.
Aggie Outfitters is apologizing for an error in the design of a new t-shirt to celebrate Texas A&M's new Southeastern Conference affiliation. It received Twitter buzz after NBC Sports' Darren Rovell re-tweeted a picture.
There is one problem with the t-shirt. Well, two or three. The t-shirt features a map of the SEC states. However, it does not include Texas nor Missouri. Missouri is also joining the conference in July. The map also includes North Carolina, a state that has no SEC schools.
Aggie Outfitters posted an an apology for the mistake online and on Twitter.
"We would like to apologize for a t-shirt that has come under fire for its inaccuracies. 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.
