Aggies making sure everyone knows they are the real '12th Man'

With the Seattle Seahawks winning Super Bowl XLVIII Sunday night, the "12th Man" is getting a lot of attention lately, but Texas A&M is wanting to make sure everyone still knows they are the "12th Man's" real home.
Even though the Seahawks organization pays Texas A&M $5,000 a year as a result of a settlement between the two parties to use one of the university's proudest traditions, Aggie social media pages sent out a few friendly reminders right before Super Bowl XLVIII kickoff that the "12th Man" still resides at Kyle Field.
Also, before the Seahawks' first playoff game against the Saints on Jan. 11, Texas A&M football's official Twitter profile sent out their own dig at Seattle.
Current Seahawks defensive end Red Bryant, who played at Texas A&M, even weighed in on the issue during the Super Bowl media day saying, "the 12th Man is in College Station, Texas."
Soon-to-be NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel got in a post too during the Seahawk's playoff run.
Needless to say, despite an agreement being in place, there is still a lot of animosity in Aggies everywhere with Seattle's version of "12th Man" getting so much attention.
