    The stadium is amzing but the turf looks like crap. They have the money and now that the season is over they have the time. Black end zone with orange letters would be awesome. New unis, new stadium, now they need a new field.

    Turf discussion is nice, but what about ribbon boards and black uniforms?

    Maybe we can buy in bulk. We have to do the IPF, too. Anybody have a Sam's card?:D

    Ribbon boards half filled with advertisements, like the big screens!

    Ha I know turf isn't cheap but dang... high schools get that kind of turf all the time. OSU can afford it. I mean the orange looks almost brown. I remember playing on that stuff when we had playoffs and state in Stillwater. It's about time for an upgrade.

    A cheap solution would be just to replace the endzones and then cover them during the offseason so they won't fade.

    I thought that this had been discussed before and the plan was new turf for bps and use the current turf in the ipf?

    How about an all black field with phantom Pete on the 50 and gray endzones? It will be a great home field advantage with the heat in September!

    Ya and then we could wear our blacked out unis so the players cant even be seen. Kinda like those tools up in boise do to try and win. Thank goodness Kellen Moore is finally gone.

    At very least the end zones and the 50yd line logo need to be repainted.

    You can't repaint turf. The plastic blades of "grass" are colored in manufacturing.
