Arkansas State Penalized for Uniforms
Bryan Harsin probably expected to face adversity in his first year as Arkansas State’s head coach. Being penalized for uniforms was likely not one of them.
Yet that’s exactly what happened to Harsin’s Red Wolves in their 38–9 loss at Auburn on Saturday. ASU’s gray and red threads were deemed too similar in contrast to the Tigers’ home blue uniforms. As a result, the Red Wolves were hit with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike penalty at the start of both halves.
On the plus side, the uniforms themselves were halfway decent - not that it was any consolation to Harsin.
