Bulldogs to don throwback uniforms

throwback mens uniformsTo commemorate its annual alumni weekend, Mississippi State will wear throwback uniforms against Vanderbilt.

Tip-off is slated for 3 p.m. Saturday on Fox Sports Net.

Alumni weekend is in its third year and is a concept created by MSU coach Rick Ray to connect with former players and coaches.

I think that’s something that’s important that we make sure everybody still feels like they are part of the family with all the coaching changes that have happened throughout the years,” Ray said. “We want to make sure Mississippi State is a place they can call home. I thought it was a chance to get people back on campus that hadn’t been here in years and see all the upgrades in facilities, improvements and the way that Mississippi State has grown as a program.”

Last year over 50 former Bulldogs returned to Starkville for the event.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
