Boise State is famous for its blue football field nicknamed the Smurf Turf and is a perennial threat to be a BCS buster. Eastern Washington is playing for an FCS national title in its first season since installing a red turf the Eagles like to call The Inferno.
So, Weber State fans, are you ready for the Purple Haze?
The WSU athletics department is asking for fans’ suggestions for designs for its new turf to be installed next season. Here is the official announcement:
Weber State is inviting fans to submit their color ideas for design ideas for the new field. Fans are asked to submit their color field designs. The top design selected will be included in the pool of other designs used by the university to make a final design.
The person submitting the top design will also receive two season tickets to the 2011 Weber State football season.
Submit your entries to weberstatesports @gmail.com, deliver to the WSU athletic offices on the second floor of Stewart Stadium or mail to Weber State Athletics, 2701 University Circle, Ogden, UT 84408, and include your name, phone number and e-mail address.
The clock is ticking. Ideas must be turned in by Jan. 20 to be eligible for the season tickets prize. If you submit a design to Weber State and would like to share it on this blog, send a copy to email@example.com and I’ll post them here.
What do you think, Wildcats fans? Do you want to see the football field go all-out purple? Would you rather see a more traditional look in classic green? Or something in between?
