In what might be the most Mississippi State thing to ever happen, the school has combined two of the hallmarks of its athletics programs: an unabashed little brother syndrome in regards to Ole Miss and horrendously shitty Adidas uniforms. As first noticed by Twitter sleuths, the Bulldogs' new baseball warmup top has a hidden message.
At first glance, this jersey is innocent enough: just some Dawgs out grindin' for Starkvegas.

If you're still unconvinced and think we've gone all Illumanti truther on you, consider that State's athletic director is even acknowleding the hidden message.
(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
So my question is, did whoever come up with this bright plan really think no one would notice? Maybe y'all could have gotten away with this shit like five years ago, but Twitter is a thing now. You can't get anything past Twitter.
