"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Whatever field you used to hate the most, be it Boise State's Smurf Turf, Notre Dame's with knee-high, shoelace grabbing turf, or OSU's with its ample supply of sacrificed goat blood--they don't compare to this abomination. Thank goodness they don't play on TV.
Eastern Washington is getting a new red field to compete with Boise's Smurf Turf. Hopefully, this results in a run on theme fields...Michigan State could cleverly have a "Sparty Green" field, Northwestern could have the "Purple Haze," and just imagine what an orange field at Tennessee would look like in HD.
