04:11 PM ET 05.08 | The Arizona State Sun Devils unveiled the New Sparky look this afternoon, which reveals an updated mascot with updated facial hair and a sleeker feel. The new look was chosen by fans of ASU from among four separate redesigns. Arizona State debuted a new Sparky in February which had been assisted by Disney that hadn't been well-received, so the university called on students, faculty, staff, alumni and fans to assist in designing a Sparky that fit their purpose.

Yep, Erickson seemed to have them on the right track, not sure why he wasn't given a little more of a chance. I get a kick out of this.."so the university called on students, faculty, staff, alumni and fans to assist in designing a Sparky that fit their purpose". Which one..winning the mascot contest or running up and down the sideline?
