MSU Goes Boise State With Huge Bulldog Heads On New Alternate Helmet

Today, Mississippi State University and adidas — why don’t they capitalize their name? — unveiled two sets of special football uniforms to be worn later this year.

On November 3rd, State will don all white uniforms at home against Texas A&M to commemorate the two schools’ 2000 “Snow Bowl” Independence Bowl battle.  For those who like the helmet Boise State sometimes wears featuring a giant Bronco logo on one side, you’re in luck ’cause the Dogs are doubling the fun.  The white helmet — shown at left — will feature a big silver Bulldog head on each side of the lid and MSU’s standard maroon M-State logo will be centered on the back as well.

Then, the Dogs will go from silver to gold on November 24th when they visit Oxford for this year’s Egg Bowl game.  As was the case last season, State’s unis will feature gold numerals as they battle for the Golden Egg trophy.

So why has Mississippi State recently jumped on the multiple-uniforms bandwagon?  Dan Mullen knows:

 

“They’re 18-, 19-year-old kids, you know.  They look at what’s cool and they want to play in cool uniforms.  And I think, you know, recruiting… I think recruits will think it’s really cool.  That’s what kids want to do, they want to come play for a cool team.”

 

Cool.

Not bad, but they should have made the traditional logo on the back a little smaller so the bulldog's face back. The mouth gets cut off and lost by the open face and face guard.

@buddha22 John must have run out of schedule smack so now he's on jersey smack. For some reason he enjoys digs on MSU. I know...I know.....everybody thinks the media is out to get them - we've heard it before.

Actually, I like the snow bowl uniform aside from the helmet.  But I don't like Boise State's big logo helmet, either.

 

Guess I need to watch my Boise State smack, too.

I take it you thought my comment "Cool" was referring to the decision to wear 15 uniforms.  Nope.  I was actually just having a little fun with Dan Mullen for using the word "cool" four times in two sentences.

 

Don't mind the snow bowl uni, though.  Aside from that helmet.

 

Thanks for reading,

John
