We've had about 27 hours to let this drastic change in Sun Devil imagery sink into our collective minds. After looking over the stock photos once again this afternoon, I am just as excited as I was yesterday.
To be honest, I was completely fixated on the black uniforms yesterday. They were new, flashy, and stuck out like a sore thumb on the stage. After looking at the maroon and white options, I must say that they are just as exciting.
Maroon and gold have been the colors of ASU for a long time, and they must continue to wear their primary colors for the majority of the season. All of the flair from these new uniforms will provide a boost to player confidence and recruiting, a la Oregon.
No one is saying that these uniforms are going to change ASU from a middle-of-the-Pac school to an elite athletic university, but what happens next is key. The Sun Devils most prove it on the field, or else all of this is meaningless.
