The new black ASU uniforms suck ass.
The new black ASU uniforms suck ass.
The sad thing is that outside of the black uniforms, the whole thing looks pretty decent. I liked that Sparky logo they had but I concede it needed a major update and the pitchfork/trident/whatever looks fine. The regular set looks good if you like to rip off of USC. The basketball unis? Pretty solid. And in a vacuum, the black unis wouldn't look bad either - ON A TEAM THAT WEARS BLACK FOR REAL.
But noooooo - in NikeLand, everyone has to wear BLAKK every now and then and there has to be smoke and shit and an INTIMIDATING BACKGROUND so that the players get to feel like fukkin soldiers, man. Warriors.
God help what they would have done to Michigan with those ProCombat concept uni's...
The only uniform trend worse than black uniforms is teal uniforms.
Let's see if everyone thinks they're still fresh and interesting in five or fifteen years. Oh wait, the uniform will be redesigned again by then.
1) I hate change because I'm mid-40s with 2 teenage kids and change makes me cranky because it usually costs me money or makes me get off the couch to drive somewhere.
2) The new ASU uniforms remind me of a USFL team.
C) Don't even tell me you don't remember the USFL.
I think that you have the USFL confused with the XFL. The USFL wasn't overloaded with black or kooky uniforms. There was a good variety and most of them looked pretty good.
I really liked the old uniforms and helmet design, but right now I'm indifferent to the new maroon and white unis. Hate the black one's though. I just hope that on the random nights when I find an ASU/Wazzu game on late, they aren't wearing the blacks. I'd like to say I would turn the game off to protest the black uniforms, but that would be a lie...
Wazzu got new unis too. All grey helmets.
At least there's no longer miss matching shades of yellow from the helmet and pants. Yes Michigan hockey, I'm looking at your miss matching look too. Yuck.
Tell you what. I love ASU's new women's volleyball uniforms. They're really nice...
I don't necessarily dislike the new uniforms, but ASU's existing color scheme is matched to its location very well. The Miami Dolphins' uniforms are a good example of that idea in the NFL.
Well...I suppose Maserati isn't too keen on them.
Is the XFL back? Does this guy have "He Hate Me" on the back of his jersey?
what is with the crotch shots in that Facebook gallery of the football and basketball uni's?
Why do you ask? Were your eyes uncontrollably drawn to the crotches?
sometimes my opera mini browser on my phone zooms in on pictures so maybe it was just an interesting zoom my phone decided. or maybe my phone just knew what I wanted to see.
I think the uniforms look good, but considering that they play in ARIZONA, all black uniforms do not even seem safe. Not the brightest thinking there.
Edit: Lots of night games apparently. I'm dumb.
with new uniforms:
apparently maryland is working on something as well, but no one knows what they'll look like.
I'm also curious to see how Nike ruins pro football uniforms...that is, if the nfl has any games this year.
The funniest part is, their mascot holds up the shocker sign now. I'll try to find a pic but it's pretty bad...
God those jerseys are so dirty... But I still prefer the Maize and Blue
that don't reflect light well.
speaking of nike, has anybody on here tried the new nike free run +3 shoes?
It really seems like with the exception of Oregon, that Nike is getting exposure at the expense of diluting the brand of most of the schools that it outfits. The kids like it, but what they like is Nike not uniforms/teams. MSU is a great example, they are always trying to establish an identity, always getting back to "tradition" by doing something new. Oregon is the exception because it has built an image of extreme logos/uniforms etc.
Man those uniforms are awesomes. We will always be champions.
Arizona State plays at Illinois next season so we'll get a good look a road version of these right here in the Big 10.
But I do like the pitchfork logo and the black helmet.
Nike makes the best uniforms.
Another Nike black uniform. *Yawn*. Now the Sundevils will look like about fifty other teams in Division I-A.
This shitty uniform era can't end soon enough. In all sports now, college and pro, about 50% of the teams look exactly the same other than the logo.
We are still champions but the unis are great.
