There are going to be some bumps in the road for SEC newcomers Texas A&M and Missouri, and one of those bumps came to light on Monday—in the form of geography.
A Texas A&M T-shirt surfaced on Monday that is designed to be a form of pseudo-smack talk to the current 12 SEC schools.
One problem though: A map of the southeastern United States, which was used as the background for the front of the shirt, included the state of North Carolina and didn't include the state of Missouri.
Missouri was added as the SEC's 14th member last fall, and will join the conference with Texas A&M for the 2012 football season. The state of North Carolina doesn't have a team in the SEC.
A representative of the company responsible for the shirt has apologized for the mishap, per USA TODAY. The shirt is not being sold by the university, but does contain Texas A&M and SEC logos.
