Starkville, Mississippi. Few teams across the country – if any – are more connected with adidas than Mississippi State baseball, states the Clarion-Ledger newspaper.
The team uses adidas not just for apparel, but for gloves and bats too.
However, no one was more surprised by the warmup shirts that featured the phrase “F–K The School Up North” than Mississippi State baseball coach John Cohen.
“Somebody ran up and told me,” Cohen said. “It’s unfortunate, but I really don’t have anything (to say) in that area.”
Mississippi State will not wear the shirts again, the Clarion-Ledger reports.
