    I have a bad feeling about this becoming a trend... I am just glad Folsom has grass.

    The good news is I will never need to worry about a Central Arkansas game being broadcast on a tv channel that I would ever watch, so I will never need to see this again.

    No FBS schools are aloud to do any of that crazy stuff. Boise St. is grandfathered in. FCS schools can still do it, like Eastern Washington and their red field last year.

    I love these things. If you're gonna be a ***** and play on plastic, at least make it look different. School colored plastic is better than shiny CSU colored plastic.

    If we ever go fieldturf (and I hope the day NEVER comes, it better not be **** green).

    Just a thought...since UCA is putting in grey turf in addition to that purple turf, could you see CU having a gold & silver turf with black endzones?

    The more schools that do it (especially small schools like Eastern Washington and Central Arkansas), the more Boise State's blue turf looks like a hokey, small-time gimmick that hurts them in recruiting instead of helping them as something unique.

    I see, they are basically retired now. We need a new pastry for the Pac-12.

    Good idea. I've got a few hours of sports watching tonight, I'll probably come up with a few...

    All black would look cool, but it would probably light players on fire on the really hot days.

    That's why they are Central Arkansas and Boise State is Boise State - small time bush league! What's next in the Kibbie Dome?

    Suiteboxes that are close to the football field. I have read there are plans to expand that dome to 25k seats but we'll see.

    It's very hard to picture a black n gold field. That being said, i think these other teams fields actually look pretty cool. Obviously most of you disagree. If we did it it would have to be something like silver field with black lines/numbers. Like the basketball jerseys. I prefer the old school green though.

    Looks like Central Arkansas is done with the turf install...not bad.

    For any of you bashing Boise State's blue field, I had the luxury of actually walking on that field a few summers ago and trust me on this: the blue turf actually looks nicer in person than what is shown on the TV.
