Arizona State unveiled alternate uniforms today and the strong rumor in the Valley is that they will be used in their November matchup at home vs. Notre Dame.
You may or may not like these aesthetically - personally, I think the helmet/copper facemask is sharp but I don't like the jersey. But that's not the point....the egregious crime against all that is sacred in college football is that ASU's traditional colors of maroon and gold (e.g. yellow) are nowhere to be found. It is also impossible to ignore that these are highly reminiscent of ASU's PAC-12 Conference foe Oregon State.
Nike, Adidas, Under Armor...they are all the same. Just thank God that (at least so far) Michigan has stuck to maize and blue.....
It seems to me that the rationale behind these novelty uniforms is that they appeal to players and make the program more attractive to recruits. I have my doubts about that but I'm not in a position to know.
Seems to me though that there's one way to know for sure: put it to a vote of the players. So we do a secret ballot. If they like the unis, the rest of us can put up with them. If the players don't like them, we send them back.
Let the players decide -- whaddya say Brandon?

Purdue has announced that if you buy into their "VIP card" program, you can submit a picture of yourself to be designed into the P on the helmet for the game vs Iowa.
Dear God, please don't let Dave hear about this idea...
