Boise State has the “smurf turf”, Eastern Washington has the red turf…and now Lindenwood-Belleville (NAIA – IL) has added a red and gray striped field to the turf conversation.
The new field is part of a $2.3 million stadium renovation that includes new seating and a new press box, which should all be wrapped up by the beginning of next week.
For better or worse, this is definitely one of the more memorable turf jobs in the country.
Lindenwood-Belleville will compete in their first season this fall with five NAIA home games.
If you look closely you will notice that there are actually people on the field.
