If you connect the dots, they spell out “F–K The School Up North.”

MSU Athletic Director Scott Stricklin took to Twitter Thursday afternoon to apologize for the shirt.

The shirt also uncoupled other MSU phrases such as, “Hail State,” “Dudy Noble Field,” Starkvegas” and “Left Field Lounge.”

adidas responded with a statement: “We apologize to Mississippi State, their student-athletes, fans and alumni for this error. The Bulldogs’ baselayer graphic today featured old artwork that was never presented to the university. This graphic does not reflect our brand values nor those of Mississippi state. We take full responsibility for this error and wish Mississippi State the best of luck during Super Bulldog Weekend.”
