Holy cow........I thought you were exaggerating! My wife's comment was that her eyes were going to start bleeding.
I made the mistake of turning to ESPN2 prior to reading the thread. I think my TV is broken now...who came up with the idea for blue/red/non-grass-colored turf?!?!?!
I can never, ever root for Eastern Washington or Boise until they both change their fields. I don't care if either team was playing a combined team of Iowa/Nebraska/KU basketball players.
The Eye Burners get the victory over Villanova to move on to the championship game. Thankfully that game isn't played on their home field.

If there is not a rule, I think there should be. Odd field colors and the blending of uniforms with the field would seem to give a very special home field advantage.
Of course, Oregon and Baylor could be said to have the advantage by wearing green with natural colored turfs. Still, I think it would be a good rule to keep fields natural.
Now, in ISU women's gymnastics, I would really like to see them use cardinal or gold mats in Hilton rather than the standard blue ones. I was hoping that the replacement mats after the summer floods might give them an opportunity to get custom mats for competitions.
I would love to see Iowa State do this. I love our current field, but the press would be worth it.
I thought my TV went bad:spinny::spinny:
Let's do a white field with green lines and then paint one endzone cardinal and the other gold.
