Football season is here!!! Mississippi State will open up the newly-renovated and expanded Davis Wade Stadium against Southern Miss tomorrow tonight. There actually is an interesting uniform-related story for tonight's game- and it seems to be an effect of Vanderbilt's unigate turbulence from Thursday Night. As reported earlier- the Bulldogs were originally scheduled to wear these uniforms in tonight's game-
However, the NCAA's rules against slogans on uniforms have forced the Bulldogs to either take "HAIL STATE" off of the jersey or give up a timeout at the start of every quarter. So now, the Bulldogs will take the field in these uniforms instead-
That is an upgrade, in my opinion; I never was a fan of "HAIL STATE" being on the front of the jersey. Now, if the big, gray MSTATE logo isn't on the pants (unfortunately, it probably will be.), this will be a very good uniform.
