Texas A&M fans aren't sitting back and letting the Seattle Seahawks' "12th Man" get all the attention during their Super Bowl appearance this weekend. Apparel company Aggieland Outfitters is selling this A&M shirt that takes a swing at the Seahawks...

DoubleDown's logic: "Stupid Nike! You can't trademark 'just do it' cause someone else used that phrase before once!"

Yes, yes they can.

I highly doubt the cadets at A&M somehow got a hold of a yearbook from IU in the 1910s and decided to create an elaborate hoax to steal a preciously guarded tradition from a school that oh by the way almost never mentions it again.

Except for the fact that the A&M's 12th Man refers to the student body, not just any fan that happens to be in the stands. For the trolls who follow the 6th grade Randolph Duke logic about Iowa...they never trademarked it...we did.

Dumb is dumb. So I guess Texas A&M truly needs to be paying the University of Iowa for creating the moniker "The 12th Man", eh? Look it up Aggies, you stole it as well - OH GOD THE HORROR of FACTS!

But Texas AnM didn't invent the 12th Man either. Their football team needed a 2nd Man this season, much less a 12th.

Even tho I hate A&M, you always respect traditions. The Seahawks need to come up with something else.
