He was mad about the aggy getting called for hitting davis' helmet late in the game, extending the drive, right?
At least the 12th man can see a Championship game sometime this century...
They stand because they only have 16 inches allocated per "seat" at pyle. There are literally not enough linear seat inches to accommodate all the asses.
This entire SEA v Aggy 12th man fiasco is damn hilarious.
The difference is that Seattle has actually played in a CHAMP game in the last bajillion years - aggie .......not so much
I might be a bit fuzzy on this, but doesn't "alma mater" indicate that you graduated from said school?Of course, Manziel took the side of his alma mater.
Didn't have to search through the comments very far to find gold:

I was the 69,967th man at the Florida/Georgia game this year. Send me $5 bucks if you want to use it.
I was the one with the can of bug repellent and cut-out of a guy with 15 watches on his arm whenever the Gators had the ball. Hasn't been too effective lately.
I wonder if a Seahawk ever lies, cheats, steals, or tolerates one who does. If not, I'm sure they can get that one for a song. Oh wait, aggy stole that from the AFA I believe, or something very similar.
Edit: That is the West Point cadet code of honor, started using it in 1802. Also used by the AFA since 1959.

If I were an aggy I'd be more worried about all the glory holes on campus
For those who haven't read it, here is a researched history of aggy and their "12th Man" fairy tale. http://www.hornsports.com/texas-12th...tory-21st-man/
In short, the phrase was in use by a number of schools, including aggy, well before their famous 1922 game. No one thought much about calling their fans their "12th Man." Here is a pdf of a Dallas Morning News article from 1938 written just before the Thanksgiving Day game that refers to the fans of both UT and aggy as their team's "twelfth Men." http://www.hornsports.com/docs/aggy/DMN_Dec_18_1938.pdf
How could a writer refer to the fans of Texas as the Longhorns' "twelfth man?"Because the aggy fairy tale of E. King Gill being the only substitute left on the sideline wasn't written until 1939 when it was written as a fictitious radio play during the hype of their national championship season. The term "12th Man" was a generic term used in 1938 and wasn't in any way used only to describe the aggy fans. The aggys didn't even have the E. King Gill "12th Man" tradition between 1922 and 1939.
Gill was certainly not their "12th Man" if they mean he was the only substitute available to go on the field. There were a number of aggy substitutes available in addition to Gill. What is hilarious is that although the story is a much a fairy tale as the story of Santa Claus, the aggys are so stupid they actually believe their version to be true. Read the researched version of the history of the "12th Man" and next time you hear an aggy talk about their 12th Man, just laugh in their face. Aggys telling lies is nothing new to anyone. Its sad that they are so dumb they believe their own lies.
During the game, A&M coach Dana X. Bible realized that one more injury would leave him without another backfield player to send into the game. Coach Bible remembered that Gill, an individual who had tried out for the squad but who “lacked the experience and ability to play for the varsity” had made the trip as a member of the school’s Corps of Cadets and was sitting with his friends in the stands. Bible sent for Gill and asked for him to suit up and be ready if needed. Gill later said, "I wish I could say that I went in and ran for the winning touchdown, but I did not. I simply stood by in case my team needed me"
THIS is the courageous act of "stand- by sacrifice" that created the legend of the "12th man" that they want to repo ?
So if you get put on hold by customer service or are selected as an alternate juror you become a hero in Collie Station. ...a culture of understudies...(That explains the "stand by"/ almost championships on the side of Pyle Field)

These flags are $35 each and I'm pretty sure the Seahawks have made more than $100,000 just selling these this year. Suck it aggy
If you remember a few years ago, their story was they originated the phrase in 1922. Now that has been proven to be a flat out lie, their story is changing. They now say they knew the entire time they didn't originate the phrase and that the fact Gill absolutely wasn't alone on the sideline doesn't matter because their tradition is a "willingness to help" and has nothing to do with how many other substitutes were standing next to Gill and available to play.
Seattle did their research and knew the aggy version of the story was a lie and the info contained on the aggy trademark filings was false. They settled for $100k up front and $5k/year because they knew $150,000 would have been less than the atty fees Seattle would have paid to defend themselves against the aggy lawsuit (in which which they would have prevailed). When the license agreement Seattle signed expires in 2016, it will be interesting to see what they pay (if anything) moving forward. Eventually, the lie of aggy's "12th Man" fairy tale will get fully exposed. It's just a matter of time.
As an outside fan looking in, aggy is one of the most unreal group of fans I have ever seen.
Now that aggy is a thousandaire with that settlement, they'll prolly double down and claim 19th hole. Settlement to include "free drink with purchase of soup and sandwich coupon" valid at any golf course in the world. Wait 'till they get ahold of baker's dozen.
