Texas A&M and Texas are currently in an indefinite hiatus in playing each other competitively, but that doesn't mean the old rivals can't still manage to get under each other's skin every once in a while, even if they are now in separate conferences. Several subjects in maroon shirts were caught red-handed allegedly drawing Aggies' "ATM" logos with chalk on buildings around the University of Texas campus in Austin according to the UT Police Department's Campus Crime Watch report on April 15th. According to the report, the Texas A&M students were pledging to a fraternity. "He explained that he along with the other nine students were pledging the Sigma Lambda Beta fraternity," the UT Police report stated. "The group was currently on a scavenger hunt and needed to place the 'ATM' logo somewhere on UT." All members of the group were issued Criminal Trespass Warnings. One member of the group was issued a court appearance citation for Criminal Mischief after the officers photographed him drawing the logo on the Main building, requested by the A&M student for "extra points getting his picture taken with the police." This isn't the first incident of Texas A&M-related graffiti; the UT campus was tagged with spray paint in October 2011 and October 2012 with popular Aggie lingo such as "Howdy," "gig 'em," and "farmer's fight." The Longhorns' hands aren't completely clean either. Texas A&M purchased a billboard on I-35 in Austin featuring an Aggie Football player proclaiming "This is SEC Country" last year that was vandalized with burnt orange paint shortly after being put on display. Seems like the two just can't get over each other, after all, both schools' fight songs have kept the special lyric that disses the other. The Longhorns' "Texas Fight" says, "Goodbye to A&M" and "The Aggie War Hymn" still states, "Saw varsity's horns off." Old habits are sometimes hard to break, especially if they are traditions of a rivalry that dates back to the 19th century.
