OT: Arizona State uniformz

Submitted by FabFiver5 on August 20th, 2015 at 1:28 PM

Adidas has officially released it's new ASU alternate uniforms, dubbed Desert Ice. Of all the monstrosities they've put out over the years, I must say that I like these a lot. The gold/oragne pitchfork against a white backdrop looks sweet, especially on the helmet and pants.

That's a solid looking uniform.  I just don't get those backgrounds that Adidas has been using on these uniform previews.  Its straight visual rape, and no matter how good the uniform looks, its really hard to get past the awfulness of these backgrounds.

It's not orange.  It's copper.  Arizona is the copper state and the color has been liked by most students, alums, and boosters.

I would like the look a lot more with a smaller helmet pitchfork.  Will need to see the pant pitchfork in a game before deciding on that.  At first glance, I don't like them.

Clearly, no one has actually applied this move to a lady, but I think the sign he's holding up has some flaws to successfully pull it off. While I agree, girls at ASU probably love this move or are very willing to give it a try anyway; his pointer and middle fingers are too far apart to insert into the primary opening. Also, the pinky is going off in the wrong direction. Has anyone ever seen or measured the distance between the primary and secondary opening? It's not that far.

My advice would be to find one of these ASU coeds and experiment for yourselves. You'll be glad you did. Of course, if you want some P in V, wear a rubber as they're notoriously UNCLEAN!!

I love how so many people here complain about uniformz yet you can't get a single reveal of alt uni's from a Power 5 program without an MGoThread being started about it. Schools largely do it for buzz so congrats, you contribute to the feeding of the proverbial beast.

The uni's perfectly fine, the undershirt is dumb but in a kinda cool way.  But dear god, these backgrounds.  Is adidas trying to give everyone seizures?

I really hate the pitchfork branding at ASU. Sparky the Sun Devil was awesome. He was probably the only mascot I thought was kinda cool. They need to put him back on the helmet. Other than the helmet, I like the uniforms though.

A bit of Sparky trivia- On November 20, as reported by the Arizona Republic, the student council made it official. The following day, the first Arizona State team played as the Sun Devils. Two years later, alumnus andDisney illustrator Bert Anthony designed "Sparky", a devil holding a trident[2] (colloquially referred to as a pitchfork[3]). Anthony is rumored to have based Sparky's facial features on that of his former boss, Walt Disney.

I find myself picturing Adidas as a crying ex girlfriend, sitting at home drinking a bottle of Burnetts while posting passive aggressive things on social media to try and make you feel some remorse for your actions.

I seriously hope Nike gives us some sweet uniformz...as long as our helmet stays the same (which it will), how exciting would it be to have a different uniform every week like Oregon? You guys are lying to yourself if you disagree.
