Ehhh...good gimmick for a 1-AA school, their student body/fans can have something to latch on to and embrace. But I wouldn't want to see this start to become the norm at all schools.

What would be the ugliest turf? $hit-stain brown and orange for the stains?

red turf...wow

you know when I first heard about red turf I was sure I wouldn't like it but it actually looks pretty cool and is a great marketing idea.

I wonder how easy to see the ball will be on TV. Like a puck on hockey.

Blue and green are very close in the color spectrum...

Red is not going to work.

Hey, how about a Black field, with Gold numbers and Gold yardlines!!

(Photoshop guys, can you do a model?)

I can see the guy pitching the idea to the Rooneys. He'll come in with a little model of the field. I would probably go something like this (p.s., that would be the PlanetSteelers fan club outside the window... :P ):
