Crapped on: Texas A&M football team buses get filled with dog poop at Texas Tech

Dog Poop
Don't blame the dogs. Humans spread their poop all over the Texas A&M football team buses.

So much for Texas A&M making a happy exit from the Big 12 to the SEC. Some obnoxious Texas Tech "fans" have made sure the road is paved with manure.

The Aggies' football team's buses received a dousing in dog poop as they sat outside the Holiday Inn the team was staying at in always lovely Lubbock for a Saturday night game with the Red Raiders. All four of Texas A&M's buses had excrement spread across their exteriors — and the one bus that didn't have a working lock had the stuff spread around its interior as well. Aggies athletic director Bill Bryne told reporters in Lubbock that the manure went “from one end to the other” inside the one bus.

 Some obnoxious Texas Tech "fans" have made sure A&M's road to the SEC is paved with manure. 

Vulgarities were also scrawled on the outside of the buses — and Texas Tech logos were stuck on the bus exteriors. Bryne told reporters that the manure appeared to be dog poop. It all happened overnight Friday as the Aggies slept.

"Someone vandalized our buses in Lubbock. Excrement inside and outside of buses plus spray painted vulgarities on outside. Classy," tweeted Bryne, one of the most new media savvy athletic directors in the country.

The bus drivers had to clean up the mess — though Bryne tweets that the bus manure bombed on the inside "still reeks."

There is a lot of anger in the Big 12 over Texas A&M's decision to bolt for the SEC. Whether this incident is really related to that at all or not, that's how it's guaranteed to be painted. Not a great moment for sportsmanship.

Probably an even worse one for Lubbock, which is already regarded as a town that few in the Big 12 want to visit.
