You may want to view these photos through a piece of smoked glass. MSU students refer to Starkville as "Stark Vegas," you see.
So these are a thing. Adidas does it again. New MSU warmups. pic.twitter.com/vbMGqPYw6G— Michael Bonner (@MikeBBonner) April 16, 2015

I appreciate that college baseball uniforms may begin giving minor league uniforms a run for their money in the garishness department. On the other hand, PLEASE DON'T START THAT ARMS RACE.
Hey, wait a minute. Is there a secret dig at Ole Miss on these shirts?
UPDATE: Mississippi State's Athletic Director has weighed in:
(1/3)This afternoon it came to my attention that a shirt provided to our baseball team by adidas has an inappropriate phrase written on it …— Scott Stricklin (@stricklinMSU) April 16, 2015
(2/3) … This is completely unacceptable and does not reflect the standards and values of Mississippi State University or its athletic dept …— Scott Stricklin (@stricklinMSU) April 16, 2015
(3/3) … For anyone who was offended by this shirt, as I was, please accept our apologies and rest assured that this has been rectified.— Scott Stricklin (@stricklinMSU) April 16, 2015
And the official statement from adidas:
"We apologize to Mississippi State, their student-athletes, fans and alumni for this error. The Bulldogs' baselayer graphic today featured old artwork that was never presented to the university. This graphic does not reflect our brand values nor those of Mississippi State. We take full responsibility for this error and wish Mississippi State the best of luck during Super Bulldog Weekend."
