The MSU Football team and Head Coach Bob Fire are stretched thin because of injured players, with Coach Fire even worrying about having enough players to start a game. To find a solution, this past Wednesday he went to the School of Arts and Architecture to look for some new recruits. “I thought I could use some new perspective on the field, although I think we may have different ideas about what ‘perspective’ means,” Coach Fire said after hosting the first try-out. “Check that, this might’ve been a horrible idea.”
Many believe this is a plot to make our once-proud Cats a losing team; others think this is a great way to improve our teams colors…literally. At the try-out, a design student commented, “Blue and Gold? How about we throw some attractive colors in there, like a nice teal or saffron?”
However, not all art students were opposed to the idea. A philosophy/paint student stated, “I can’t wait to blow their minds when I think outside of the huddle.” The same student was later hospitalized.
No one is sure if this desperate strategy will work: “It’s hard to say if this will be the new canvas on which we sketch our way to the championship,” said Coach Fire. “All I know is that the playbook is going to get a lot more colorful and the X’s and O’s are going to look a lot more like Vincent Van Goghs paintings. Let’s hope no one loses an ear over this.
