Does Arizona State have new pitchfork helmets waiting for 2013?

Arizona State attempted to rebrand this offseason by hiring Disney to make its mascot Sparky a little cuddlier and friendlier.

Well, that sweet and huggable persona won’t be applied to the Sun Devils’ uniforms.

According to UniWatch, Arizona State is looking at new helmets, which feature an oversized pitchfork on the side of maroon, gold, black and white helmets. It’s similar to Boise State’s oversized Bronco helmets that were revered last season.

Personally, I like it. It’s both stylish and kinda angry looking.

As Paul Lukas of UniWatch notes, there’s been no word on whether the Sun Devils will actually wear these helmets, but I think we’re all hoping they do.
