Not SEC tough? Texas A&M wimpily pulls ridiculed welcome video in wake of UT parody

Not SEC tough? Texas A&M wimpily pulls ridiculed welcome video in wake of UT parody

Well, it was bound to happen, and fortunately it did.

The original Texas A&M "Welcome to the SEC" video that elicited a wellspring of derision this week — from SEC conference members and A&M alums alike — has already been pulled down off YouTube in many places due to the university claiming "copyright" over the embarrassing material. Texas A&M's "social media team" also took the video down on the school's official channels.

But its shining moment has hardly passed.

It's spawned a surprisingly funny parody video done by The University Co-op, the mega-store supplying the majority of the University of Texas students and alumni with their books and Longhorn paraphernalia.

Apparently, the staff at the Co-op has a passion for video work, with some results turning out better than others. Without hesitation, however, the team took aim at the easy target of the "SEC Welcome" video to rather impressive results. The impression of Texas A&M president Bowen Loftin is entirely LOL-worthy.

It's all in good fun, y'all. This is the way rivalries work after all . . . Welcome to the SEC.
