Eastern Michigan’s Gray Turf Looks A Lot Like Concrete

Eastern Michigan is switching up the turf game for the 2014 season. As a part of revamping the school’s football facilities, EMU has installed a unique, gray field.

Why gray, you ask? According to Chris Vannini of Coaching Search, Rynearson Stadium has been dubbed “The Factory,” and the new turf will give it a concrete feel – hopefully not physically.

EMU coach Chris Creighton is excited about the change, stating:

“Installing new top of the line FieldTurf in our stadium is one of many ways that our administration has demonstrated a real commitment to Eastern Michigan Football. The fact that they have embraced the idea of the field being concrete gray shows their courage and conviction in who we are and what we are all about. We cannot wait to represent Eastern Michigan University on our new turf this fall and for the years to come.”

Following is the field’s new gray design:
