As if Billy Cundiff hadn't already endured enough abuse in the previous 24 hours, Kansas students decided to poke fun at the beleaguered Baltimore Ravens kicker during Monday's 64-54 victory over struggling Texas A&M.

Each time the Aggies went to the free-throw line, a group of students held up giant white cardboard cutout letters that spelled out C-U-N-D-I-F-F. The sign was a reference to the potential game-tying field goal that Cundiff shanked in the final seconds of Sunday's AFC championship game, enabling the New England Patriots to escape with a three-point win.

Disgruntled Ravens fans aside, the sign was a hit on Twitter.

"Hate Kansas but love the Cundiff sign behind the hoop," wrote one TV viewer.

"Rooting for A&M but I got to give Kansas some credit [f]or the Cundiff sign. That's hilarious," tweeted another.

The Cundiff sign may have elicited plenty of chuckles, but it had little impact on Texas A&M's free-throw shooting. The cold-shooting Aggies hit 7 of 11 foul shots, right about at their paltry season average of 62.5 percent.

Co-favorites in the league along with Kansas according to a preseason projection by the Big 12 coaches, Texas A&M is now 11-8 overall and 2-5 in league play, ahead of only winless Texas Tech. Yes, it has been a miserable month for the Aggies, but at least none of them have made any blunders egregious enough to be fodder for fans in another sport.
