Texas A&M, which claims to have invented college football, the forward pass, tailgating, football stadiums and fan support, has settled its dispute with the Seattle Seahawks over their use of the term 12th man for the last several decades. Terms of the settlement are not yet fully disclosed but you can expect that A&M will receive some cash along with, and this is true, an agreement that a statement that the 12th Man is a trademark of Texas A&M University will be included on broadcasts that feature reference to Seattle fans as the 12th man.
