    They probably should have focus-grouped this... I'm all for experimenting, but this is going to cause seizures:

    Ummm... When I clicked on the thread I was sure I was going to post something like, "Bad ass!" But I just can't. That is horrible.

    Need to go black. We can't settle on what color gold we want to be.

    That's going to be a lot of fun for those early season 90 degree games....

    How about silver? Or powder blue????

    It wouldn't surprise me at all if CU went to Field Turf. It's a recycled material and totally fits with the image the university likes to project.

    I actually think black would be pretty badass and recruits would love it.

    I've heard/seen numerbs that it would save the AD a significant amount of money over 5 years,, something like $1.5 million.

    Black with brown spots to imitate buffalo droppings. And blood splatter paint to represent blood splatter. And burrito stands.

    Nope, I'm a traditionalist! Give me real grass, if not grass green field turf it the next best. But I do like red (or scarlet as we really call it).

    Speaking of these colored (non-green) football fields, Oregon State actually painted their practice field blue to help them adjust for their game at Boise this weekend.

    I did too. Looked it up. There isn't an NCAA rule. That's a web myth, apparently.

    Pretty savage. Not sure if it's good savage, but savage nonetheless.

    I wonder if New Mexico is going to go pinkish purple for their next home game...

    I think I would like all fields to just be green, as GOD wanted grass to be!

    Man! Don't drop a hit of acid before the game, maaan! That would be a total bummer, man. A bad trip. A VERY bad trip.

    I hope we don't ever get field turf, but if we did, the black and gold field of death would be awesome. And black will not get that much hotter than dark green with black pellets everywhere.

    I can't stand the color red and that awful field doesn't help to change my opinion

    Look, I'm as big of a Husker fan as the next guy and love red, but that is horrible. These colored fields are retarded IMO. The only colored allowed should be green and that's it.

    If you guys can have 4 different shades of green on one field, i dont see a problem with other colors.

    We are CU. We do not need to resort to strange colored fields for PR, a la Boise and EW. I don't care what kind of field we install, but it better be green.

    I just can't imagine being a fan in the stands and watching an entire football game on red or blue turf. I'd think it would be grating.

    So ripping out perfectly good grass is the green thing to do? This reminds me of people that tear down a perfectly good house so they can build a green house in the name of earth. Keep the grass.
