We don't usually cover the baseball uniform beat here on FootballScoop, but there's just too much going on here to pass up.
Adidas dressed Mississippi State in new "Viva Starkvegas" batting practice shirts on Thursday for a weekend series with Florida. The Bulldogs have embraced the tongue-in-cheek put down of Starkville and made it their own, but this takes the whole "Starkvegas" thing up three new levels.
The shirt is laden with "hidden" messages such as "Dudy Noble" (the Bulldogs' home field), "Hail State" and, uh, "F--k The School Up North."
Say what now?
Stricklin has to hope no one under his employ had any knowledge of Adidas's theatrics ahead of time.
