I remember hearing a story about Texas A&M wanting to make their turf maroon. Supposedly they biologically engineered grass to grow maroon, and they wanted to use it for Kyle Field, but the NCAA denied them.
I don't know if that's actually true, but I've heard it from several different people. Personally, I think it's cheating to change the color of the turf to your home jersey colors. If you want your field to match your school, then change your colors to green and white!
The blue turf hurts my eyes to look at it, no telling what this red turf is going to do to them.
Heard about this awhile back and it got approved along with Roos from the TItans paying for some of the turf.
Oh God please NO!! I can't watch Boise State games because that blue field literally makes me nauseous.
Glad there is no University of Jeff Gordon.
that would be cool......red team colors playing on a red field.....it's like invisible football.....all you see is the ball moving on the field
I want this on Battle Red Day. There I said it. Sorry.
I thought there was a ruling by the NCAA that no field can be a color other than green? Boise St. is grandfathered in so they don't have to change it.
Is this different because Eastern Washington isn't Division 1? Call me conservative or a traditionalist but I think the play of field needs to be standard.
I'm fine with a baseball field having different dimensions but the diamond needs to be consistent. Artificial grass vs Real grass so be it. I'm fine with a basketball court having different SHADES of stain on it? But it has to appear 'natural'.
No way do I support a blue or red football field, basketball court or baseball diamond.
That would be something. People would barely be able to see the players.
