Adidas Unveils Pink Miss St. Concept Uni
Is Mississippi State preparing to trade in its traditional maroon and white for something significantly more daring?
At an Adidas uniform event on Friday night, many present were agog at a pink Bulldogs concept uniform being worn by one of the manikins.

The negative reaction from Mississippi State fans on the Twittersphere and beyond was significant enough that Bulldogs athletic director Scott Stricklin felt compelled to address the situation.
The pink football jersey … here’s the deal: Adidas is very creative. Many ideas are only concepts, like that one for breast cancer awareness

In short, don’t expect Mississippi State to take the field with these this fall. Alas, we’re sure opposing fans were so looking forward to mockingly referring to the Bulldogs as the Poodles.
