Texas A&M;'s 12th ManGet Rating Widget!

It’s the tradition and the fans that distance college football from every other American sport, and no one does tradition or incorporates the fan base better than A&M.; The 12th man—the student body—stands throughout all home games as a show of support, but the coolest aspect of this institution is the 12th man kickoff team, which used to be comprised entirely of walk-ons, and now has a single representative that emerges from a tryout. What better way to connect a football program to the entire student body than to take one of their own—an every man—and assimilate him into the team? It blurs the line between athletes and students, and gives Aggie fans their version of Rudy to rally around every time they reconvene at Kyle Field. (Add picture)

I have never been there, but I can't imagine that anything can beat A & M traditions from yell practice, to kissing your date, to the 12th man, and who knows what else. (And I am a Tennessee fan where we have a lot of poplular traditions)

Absolutely the most impressive college tradition I have ever witnessed. Originating the "12th man" phrase in 1922, the Texas A&M; faithful stand throughout all football games, follow thier "yell leaders" in entertaining and loud yells that rock the stadium, and sway in unison whenever the fight song is played.
