Arizona State Football: Team Puts Pac-12 Championship Trophy Sticker on Helmet (PHOTO)
Helmet-centric motivational tactics are all the rage as the summer of 2014 winds down. Arizona State head coach Todd Graham continued the trend by having the Pac-12 championship trophy slapped on the back of each of his player’s helmets.

The Sun Devils are using the emblem presumably as a reminder of the glory they kind-of-but-not-so-narrowly missed out on last season and aspire to achieve in 2014.
ASU shocked everyone with an 8-1 Pac-12 campaign and a berth in the conference title game. But they were shellacked by Stanford, 38-14, and figure to be in a tier below the Cardinal, Oregon and UCLA this season.
But hey, whatever works.
