Yes.  I still go for the original BSU though.

I hate colored football fields.

 

Nothing says "rinky-dink program" better than a non-green field.

Boise State could lay a claim to the Smurf Turf as one of those quirky, unique things, like the Steelers only having a logo on one side of the helmet.  But then more teams jumped on the bandwagon and it's become a giant pain in the rump.

This is interesting because Boise State has a trademark on non-green athletic fields. They've granted permission for a number of other schools (e.g. Eastern Washington - red, Eastern Michigan - gray, Coastal Carolina - teal), but as far as I know, they've never approved another blue football field. That said, the University of New England doesn't compete with Boise State in any way, shape, or form, so it's pretty reasonable for them to approve this.

Luther College in Decora Iowa has a blue field. I think it's the exact same shade as Boise too

I don't mind Coastal Carolina's field because it's within a certain degree of tolerance from normal green grass/turf.  I haven't seen a gray or black turf, but I may not mind that too much.

 

Red turf is disgusting.

My personal pick for worst field goes to Central Arkansas. If I recall correctly, they even announced this monstrosity on April Fools'.

Coincidentally, they also released their new uniforms. Apparently they're with NIke now.

Out of all the colored fields, it's decidedly the least harsh on the eyes.  If anything, it just looks like fungus-y green grass.

My interpretation of the article after reading the 1st two paragraphs is that bsu's claim is extremely flimsy and would not hold up in court but they like to pretend that they are some arbiter of colored sports fields. All of the retroactive granting of rights and attempting to claim the rights to the nickname broncos is absolutely ridiculous.

To me, the Eastern Michigan field looks black-and-white with everything else in color.

The school should send letters to the players' families warning them not to adjust their televisions

I know that EMU is historically terrible, but to suggest that the only people watching the midweek MACtion games are players’ family members is a bit harsh.

Miami broke in special cleats today. The base color of the shoe is white and the highlight color is a green that is closer to aqua than traditional Miami green. An alternate for the LSU game seems likely.
