We had the entire staff sound off what they want from Adidas. Now, it's the fans' turn.
Here are the best responses we received from Facebook and Twitter as we kick off our first reader roundtable.
Question: What do you hope to see uniform wise from Adidas?
Kati Hanley: I would like to see Adidas come up with something totally unique to ASU and NOT what they have done at other schools like the above. You want ASU fans to buy Adidas? Earn it!! Like the pitchfork with flames or an inferno...we are the first school to have the double inferno aka two student sections
Matthew Maltby: I would like to see the Desert Fuel uniforms focused on. I also feel that the Maroon Monsoon, Whiteout and Blackout games are very big for fan morale. I dig the big fork helmets and was ecstatic to see Sparky return.
I would like to see a veterans uni for the salute to service game. University of Maryland did awesome job on theirs and I think we can do better
One thing I don't want to see is the jerseys simply be The same design as UCLA but in different colors. I hope that Adidas truly starts with a blank sheet of paper
Paul Alexander: Focus on making the on field, sideline gear that Nike only gave in the coaches package available for the fan base. People want to wear what the players and coaches wear.
Make each sport important, yes football is the generator of the money for the athletic department, but if Adidas put out gear for the other sports it would sale as well.
My personal expectations are low for this year as the athletic department and Adidas will be feeling each other out but they better go big years 2-4 or another brand will be taking their place soon.
Brent Szymkowski: A throwback uni honoring the 1987 Rose Bowl team would be great. Adding a Desert Fuel road jersey would be a great option as well. Beyond that, I don't want to see a whole lot of change. Our current look is great and has gained recognition, I think deviating from it would be a mistake.
Peter King: Make a special uniform for the game against U of A. The uniform needs some roses so we can rub it in their face that they have never been to a Rose Bowl.
.@HouseOfSparky Two-tone maroon & gold Adidas tracksuits that are so fire that every Eastern European dad will be wearing them— Brett Cowett (@BACowett) July 12, 2015
@HouseOfSparky I want to see Adidas get powerful and inventive with the ASU Unis and fan gear. Make ASU the lead with Adidas sports.— LorenMondy30 (@sandmanAPA) July 12, 2015
@HouseOfSparky at this point all I want to see from adidas is a release date.— Mack Huff (@HackMuff) July 11, 2015
@HouseOfSparky Simplicity. Unfortunately Adidas just ruined UCLAS classic look. Not too optimistic. Sparky on helmet or large pitchfork only— Shane Pappas (@pap_devil) July 11, 2015
@HouseOfSparky Judging by Michigan and UCLA's uniforms, I have 0 faith in their design and execution. I want to see a short lived contract.— SG (@stevengrady) July 11, 2015
@HouseOfSparky Said it already but, a white away jersey that goes with any helmet/pant combo. Either that or multiple away jerseys— SanTan Devil (@NickTarasevich) July 11, 2015
Thank you to everyone who participated.
