Last week I hinted at the fact that Mississippi State’s new football uniform looked an awful lot like Texas A&M’s new uniform (both made by Adidas).
Mississippi State’s Athletics Director Scott Stricklin went on twitter to reassure everyone that despite the similarities of the uniforms, no one would have any trouble telling the two schools apart.
From @stricklinMSU (Scott Stricklin) – 26 July 2012
But I promise, no one will have trouble telling us apart at #DavisWade on Nov. 3. #SnowBowl12
Stricklin apparently spoke too soon, as someone at SECStore.com has already confused the two. The online retailer has already fixed the problem, but was recently selling the Texas A&M Coaches Sideline Performance Hat with an A&M logo on the front and the phrase “Bulldogs Football” on the back.
The hat’s description read as follows [emphasis added]:
Do it in official Aggies style with the 2012 Coaches Sideline flex hat from Adidas. Featuring an embroidered school wordmark on the crown, embroidered “Bulldogs Football” lettering at the back and ClimaLITE fabric that conducts heat and sweat away from the body to keep you comfortable on warm game days, this cap will ensure that you’re dry and cool while you strategize about TAMU’s next move.
