    I think it will not show up right on TV. I know the Boise field doesn't show well.

    Re: Eastern Washington University To Install Red Football Turf

    I don't know if this is true or not, but I recently heard that the blue field at Boise State has another problem:

    Kamikaze birds are continually plowing into the turf after mistaking it for a water source.

    If this is true, then my bet would be their field would always remain "one of a kind."

    Marshall's colors are green and white.

    Someone who is color blind won't notice the difference.

    True, but the playing surface in Athens was usually brown until 2002.

    Apparently THE Louisiana State University is getting in on the act.

    I can't come up with words to describe how AWFUL that looks. Seriously.

    I could be wrong but I would think it would cause a lot of eye strain to watch players move around on that. Red is the harshest color...having to stare at it for hours would be rough, especially on a sunny day.

    Split Enz must have anticipated this stadium about 30 years ago.
