Mississippi State is Actually Texas A&M, According to ESPN

Another day, another time that someone has mistaken Mississippi State for another university.

Yeah, it’s happened again. Someone confused Mississippi State with another university. Texas A&M, to be exact. Only, this time it isn’t a jersey in a store or adidas copying a design for one school and using it for another. It’s ESPN using Texas A&M’s logo for Mississippi State in a graphic.

As Brooks Roberts points out, South Carolina is playing Mississippi State. And ESPN thinks we’re Texas A&M, or something. I mean, it’s not like we’re wearing the same jersey this time. We’re wearing something that is... Ummm... Unique?

So, I’m not sure exactly how ESPN confused the two schools here. Does their graphic database just lump universities together by uniform color instead of by name alphabetically? It’s odd. Get yourself together, ESPN.
