Eastern Michigan to Play on a Gray Football Field for Some Reason

By 06.19.14


Everyone in college football is peacocking. From the helmets to the uniforms to the cheesy motivational slogans, teams feel the pressure to stand out. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it can result in some interesting choices.

Take Eastern Michigan, for example, who will play on a gray field next season.

The idea apparently came to coach Chris Creighton after the team practiced in the snow. The Eagles will also start calling their stadium “The Factory.”

If you’ve ever spent any time in Ypsilanti, you know this new field turf may instantly become the most aesthetically pleasing landmark in the city.

Significant upgrade.
