If there’s one way to put a label on the first five weeks of the 2013 season, it’d be the year of the new helmet.

And now Arizona State is taking the craze to a whole new level.

A week after introducing a new pitchfork helmet, the program is expanding on the idea and adding a fire design to their pitchfork lids.

Seriously. Look at those things. It looks like someone artfully vomited fire onto each helmet. I will admit that it’s cool that each helmet is different, but, quite frankly, they still look ridiculous.

Arizona State joins the ranks of Virginia Tech, Washington, Baylor and a whole host of schools that have experimented with new helmets this season.

Call me a traditionalist, but this is the idea of what a college football helmet should look like.
