Tiger Stadium To Feature Purple Turf

This just in:

The LSU Athletic Department has begun preparations to install purple field turf in historic Tiger Stadium in time for the 2010 home opener against Mississippi State.

“It’s now time to expand the traditions that surround our football program,” LSU head coach Les Miles said. “LSU is going to take the lead in what we think will become the wave of the future and that’s field turf in the colors of your school. The installation of the purple field turf will add to the excitement of a Saturday Night in Tiger Stadium and this team will enjoy the opportunity to play on what will be the finest surface in football.”

What I like best about the new field is the competitive advantage that it will give to the Tigers. As one assistant coach put it:

“It is definitely faster than anything I’ve ever seen in my 14 years of conditioning,” Tiny Gampshone, the junior executive strength and conditioning coach said. “It is really going to prompt muscle confusion in the other team as the brain wants to run on a green surface.”

    Tennessee did that today also. AD and Coach Dooley were on Radio this morning announcing Orange Turf. Funny stuff.

    Thank goodness there is only Boise State. I can’t watch their home games on TV, it hurts my eyes.
