Mississippi State isn’t in the middle of a rebranding, despite what the shirt says.
A t-shirt for sale at the College World Series mistakenly named the Bulldogs the Mississippi State Rebels, and will no doubt become a collectors’ item for sports fans with a sense of humor. A picture of the shirt was Tweeted by an Ole Miss fan, no doubt pleased by their in-state rival’s dubious publicity.
The Bulldogs are making their ninth appearance in Omaha, Nebraska, and will open play on Saturday against the Oregon State Badgers at 2pm.
The vendor selling the shirts was alerted to the mistake, according to Michael Bonner of the Clarion-Ledger, and has already collected the unsold shirts and shipped them back.
