Well, Texas A&M, you are new to the SEC conference, and you may not be new to the game, but it seems you're new to the geography of the SEC.
You see, while North Carolina is a lovely state, with some delicious barbecue, what it isn't is the home state of any school that calls the SEC home. North Carolina, Duke, N.C. State, these schools all belong to the ACC.
Maybe they confused North Carolina for Missouri, which you'll notice is missing from the shirt as well.
Thankfully this shirt isn't by the school itself and isn't for sale on the Texas A&M website, and is being sold by some hopeful entrepenuer looking to make some money on A&M's latest move. If only that person had done a bit more research before printing these up.
Oh, and if you're wondering, the state of Texas is represented on the back of the shirt. They weren't that stupid.
UPDATE: The vendor selling the t-shirt, "Aggieland Outfitters," has issued an apology for it:
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.
The t-shirt was originally designed to reflect the SEC states before expansion on the front, and then refer to the addition of a “Texas style of football” on the back. The original sketch did not have North Carolina on it, but when an artist drew the map, it was added by mistake.
Texas and Missouri were never part of the design, as it was supposed to be a nod to the original 12 members of the SEC.
The shirts have been pulled from the stores and website, and we've addressed the issue internally ...
While it was a simple error, our biggest concern is that Texas A&M is associated with it, and that was never our intention.
While we sympathize with Aggieland Outfitters' plight, we can't help but have a chuckle at the insistence that it's "simply not true" that the entire institution of Texas A&M "doesn't know geography." Good to know!
