I had to look closely. I seriously thought I was watching a black and white game. I know our turf needs to be replaced soon, hopefully after this year but its nothing like up in Ypsilanti MI. That wasn't bad, it was horrid. The grey is fading into white and the black is fading into grey and it all just seem to be a miss mash of horribleness.

That turf color is much more distracting than Boise St. Blue.

It wasn't bad when it was new. Much more tolerable than the Smurf Turf. But now its just nasty looking. The 2 worst fields I think are Central Arkansas's purple and grey alternating colors and Eastern Washington's all red used tampon turf.

I advocate for all fields to be green, a nice, deep, dark, shade of green. No blue Smurf Turf, no E. Washington red turf, no UCA alternating bands of purple turf...just green. Just my not-so-humble opinion.

I remember watching us play EMU at The Factory of Sadness. I'm glad we won, but it was not pleasant on the eyes.

That turf is only six years old!

And while the the suits were proud of the message that the "concrete gray" color sent -- "With the gray field being installed, we will be the only ones in the country with such a design. Most importantly, it helps us build an identity that matches the toughness of our team and connection with our community." - EMU Vice President and Director of Athletics Heather Lyke -- the fans' reactions have been (understandably) pretty critical and quizzical from day one:

>> Update, 9/1/2017: Is it still gray? You bet, it's still gray.

I kinda like Bose State's blue turf but EMU's grey turf is just nasty-looking. But, of course, that's just me.

Check out Lindenwood's field.... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lindenwood_Stadium

"The nation’s most original (hideous) football field."

It's strange in person too, I went to our game there a couple of years ago. It takes a bit to get adjusted to it.
