Despite joining the SEC just one year ago, Texas A&M fans

are fitting right in

target="_blank">with the craziest college football fans in the

country.

On Thursday, one Aggies fan paid $115,000 at an auction for the

rights to own a license plate labeled “12THMAN” for 10 years (after

which it can be renewed for $795), plus getting the honor bestowed

upon him or her at halftime of Saturday’s game between No. 6 Texas

A&M and No. 1 Alabama at Kyle Field. The winning bid crushed

the previous state record for the sale of a license plate, which

was $25,000 for “HOUSTON.”

Last year, the state of Texas passed a law allowing license

plates to contain seven letters, with My Plates — the state

customized license plate contractor — having the first rights

to them.

We just hope the winning bidder didn’t have to sell his or her

car to come up with all that money. Wouldn’t that be fitting?
