Aggies To Put “SEC Country” Billboards Up Across The Lone Star State

If you’re driving through one of Texas’ metro areas this fall, you might just spot a familiar message… in an unfamiliar place.

Texas A&M has told The Houston Chronicle that Aggie billboards will be put up all across the Lone Star State.  Four will go up in Houston.  Four will pop up in San Antonio.  Four more will appear in Dallas-Ft. Worth.

In those cities, two boards will read “This is SEC Country,” while the others will say, “This Is New Turf,” and “We Stand Ready.”

A&M already caused a stir a couple of weeks ago by raising a “This is SEC Country” billboard right outside of Austin, home of their hated Texas Longhorn rivals.

In addition to the billboards in the big cities, A&M is also going to place SEC-themed billboards on I-35 entering Texas from Oklahoma, on I-10 and I-20 entering Texas from Louisiana, and on I-30 entering Texas from Arkansas and Louisiana.

Told ya the Aggies would fit in perfectly.

Red Clay has billboard envy

Red Clay is just mad because when you drive into his State all you see is billboards from another school in Miss saying "Welcome to Our State"

Red Clay, as an Aggie, I can say I am really excited to join the SEC and experience all the cities in which the member schools are located.  After all the SEC is known for thriving metropolises such as Auburn, Tuscaloosa, Fayetteville, Gainesville, Oxford and Starkville. I am not sure if College Station is worthy. 

 

You know, I have always wanted to go to Oxford, Mississippi.  It has been on my bucket list since I was a little kid (like everyone else in the world I am sure). I have been able to visit some world class cities, New York, Boston, D.C., Seattle, all over Europe, but I am sure none of them compare. But dammit, Oxford, I just can't wait! Maybe when I get there you can explain why I have to worry that our coach will like the Grove, have a winning a record and leave an SEC team for an SEC team.

Great move Ags, and nice job promoting the conference in TX.

 

Is Red Clay trying to say that A&M has not been relevant since plastic helmets were introduced? I'm not sure Ole Miss has a lot of room to talk. I guess this guy hates Ms State so bad that he takes it out on A&M because they have the same color jerseys ... wow that's logical

Yes the Aggies will fit in well in Starkville their doppelganger city.

The billboard?  How very STATE of you, because that is who does that.

Aggies you will like the Grove.

You better hope your coach does not. 

Whenever you get one with a winning season they head to an SEC team.

For recruiting we should have gotten the Houston Cougars- better city, easier travel, better football tradition since plastic helmets have been used, good recruiting, growing market.   At least Houston had Gilley's

If the Grove could be bought a Longhorn would have done it  an you still would be 2nd Little Brother.

You will love Starkville and our little brother who we refer to as Cousin Eddy.  Like looking through a fun house mirror.

So enjoy your much anticipated maroon on maroon spring game type experience with the inaugural Maroon Goon bowl game.

For the record Admiral Gial Ackbar would be a better on field mascot than the shoved down the throat of alumni Bear. 

But both of you maroons please do not let you or your women folk throw your dip cups on the bear and splatter Copenhagen juice on his uniform.

RedClay seems a bit too nervous, but it is understandable!  Two maroon-"goon" yearly beat downs

 is not a pleasant prospect.

Careful Akbar, one of us may have a good time in Oxford later this fall and buy the state of Mississippi.

Again-  They are Mississippi State's doppelganger but on steroids.

Sherrill, Bellard, stupid side striped jersies, little brother complexed agg school, and now the billboards.

Have the maroon bowl between these two.

The loser has to keep maroon as the school color.

 @ETXAg05 I'm thinking Red Clay has more problems than just billboard envy...... school color angst, no sense of humor, state envy, mascot envy and alternatives to smoking tobacco envy.

 @AustinAg  Even if an A&M coach left for another SEC school...it sure 'nuff wouldn't be Ole Miss.  I mean, Tubberville left for Auburn...Auburn of all places.

 I'm not sure even a webel would talk such nonsense...not sure who red is...ole mrs has a huge inferiortity complex, always have...the little bears haven't won anything in over 40yrs...the only team in the sec west to never sniff a championship game...there was a time they held a slim claim to their own state, but as to be expected they are now second tier in Miss....I'm sure there newest rival will be kentucky since Vandy and Miss St own them now!
