Michigan State’s Mascot Sparty Gets A New Look [PHOTO]

Don’t worry folks — the iconic clean-shaven chin, muscles and determined eyebrows aren’t going anywhere.

On Friday, August 29 during his runout prior to kickoff of the MSU vs. Jacksonville State football game, Michigan State University mascot Sparty will show off some changes to his appearance.

Janel Rutzen, Program Coordinator for the Future MSU Alumni Association, said the biggest change involves the color of the armor and Sparty’s epaulettes.

If you’re confused about what an epaulette is, “most people know of them as his shoulder pads.” explained Rutzen.

The shoulder decorations will change from the block “S” to the Spartan helmet logo. Rutzen described the armor color change, “he’s transitioning to the university’s official new dark green.”

The updates are courtesy of a $15,000 fundraising program organized by the future alumni team.
