At football games, the MOB always puts on a show with 3 to 5 formations in which they spell out words or form pictures somehow appropriate to the song they are playing.
The MOB particularly enjoys poking fun at the Texas A&M Aggies, including such memorable incidents as when they started the show by forming the Aggies' "aTm" logo, which was soon followed by two additional groups of MOBsters running out onto the field to add a letter "e" at each end of the logo, and the incident in which the MOB was chased off the field by the A&M Corps of Cadets after playing "Oh Where, Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone?" shortly after A&M's mascot (a dog named Reveille) died.
