Texas A&M giving out “BTHO (Beat the Hell Outta) Kentucky” t-shirts

There are three certainties in life: death, taxes, and teams giving out free t-shirts when they play Kentucky. As expected, Texas A&M is pulling out all the stops for Saturday’s game vs. the Cats in College Station, handing out free “BTHO Kentucky” (Beat The Hell Outta Kentucky) t-shirts to everyone in Reed Arena.

As I learned on my trip to College Station two years ago, the Aggies really like the BTHO acronym and will put it on just about anything. Also, the fact that they use the acronym instead of spelling the phrase out is almost as ridiculous as the policy not to boo opponents or referees, but instead hiss at them in what they call a “horse laugh.” In an indication of how weird and embarrassing that tradition is, this is the only video on the internet I can find of it:

Sigh. Why did I agree to do this road trip again? Oh yeah, the Dixie Chicken.

See you there, Texas Cats fans?

    They are a top 10 level team so it’ll be tough but Cal is 7-2 vs A&M so it’s possible. Go Cats!

    Could the NIT imbeciles remove the self from this site. The odds of us going to the NIT are about as good as the Browns chances to win the SB next year.

    Anyone who says UK doesn’t have a chance to win this game are idiots. Can we lose?? Sure we can, but not because we are that bad but because A&M are that good and starting to come together. However with the obvious stated some things can be learned in a loss, i learned this team has the potential to be a final four team but i find it unlikely that they will, doesnt mean the possibilities arent there. I think they are starting to come together but are a ways off as of yet and not sure if we can make up the ground needed to be that final four team. But the aggies is just another tough team in a tough conference that could be a building block if we get the W at their home court. Step at a time, either way i bleed blue and not gonna give up on a team full of 5 star recruits who are having issues finding their way due to being inexpierenced. Worst come to worse next season we will have those talented sophmores to provide leadership to next years class. Either way #GOBIGBLUE!!

    Jesus already got the hell beaten out of all of us if we accept the free gift of salvation through him. Though, I do appreciate the sentiment, A&M.
