║ Schools: Mississippi State
Tags: Egg Bowl, Hail State, NCAA, Sic Em Bears
Mississippi State is quickly becoming the SEC’s answer to Oregon. No, the Bulldogs aren’t quite to the Ducks’ level of garishness yet, but they do churn out new uniforms at an alarming rate.
In the past few seasons they have added silver to their uniforms, donned black jerseys, tested the all-white Stormtrooper look and added gold to their Egg Bowl unis. They’ve worn a variety of helmets as well. All that’s missing at this point is a pillbox hat.
Well, today State is expected to unveil a new overall uniform design for the 2014 season. One reporter/leaker looks to have already let the cat out of the bag via Twitter. Here’s the photo that’s been popping up all over the web in recent days:
That uni looks positively old school (which means it gets our immediate stamp of approval). The only question we have? Has MSU already gotten NCAA approval to use the words “Hail State” on the front of its jerseys? We ask because last month the NCAA ruled that new adidas uniforms for Baylor’s basketball team could not be used with the words “Sic ‘Em Bears” on the front. Only the name of the school or its mascot are allowed on the front of basketball jerseys. If the same holds true for football, adidas could be outta luck again.
So, surely the “Hail State” has been approved by the NCAA. Surely.
