Pro Combat Uniform mockup fools Detroit Free Press

The unveiling of the Michigan State Nike Pro Combat Uniforms is only two weeks away, but it hasn’t stopped the flood of mockups appearing all over the Internet.

One particular mockup created by “Plate of Shrimp,” a user on the Spartan Tailgate forums, gained particular notoriety.

Plate of Shrimp used the standard Nike Pro Combat Uniform Photoshop template and designed what he thought the upcoming uniforms would look like. As a joke, he put the Spartan Tailgate logo on the helmet.

It must have looked convincing, because the official Michigan State football booster organization, Downtown Coaches Club, sent out a mass email claiming the mockup as a leaked image of the uniform to be worn against Michigan on Oct. 15.

The Detroit Free Press went one step further and also reported online that the image was possibly the upcoming unreleased uniform. The article even made the print edition of the paper.

As you can expect, the Spartan Tailgate forums had a good laugh. If either the Downtown Coaches Club or the Free Press did a little research, or emailed me, it would have saved them the embarrassment of being fooled by a fake image.

Both the Downtown Coaches Club and the Detroit Free Press have since retracted their stories.

Speaking of the Nike Pro Combat Uniforms, Georgia uniforms were unveiled last week and Oregon and Boise State uniforms were unveiled last Thursday. In my opinion, they look sharp and this increases my expectations of the Michigan States Nike Pro Combat Uniforms. The uniforms released so far have an accompanied school colored Nike Shoe, which means Nike will be getting more of our money.
