Get a good look at that, folks. It could be the what you see when you walk into Byrd Stadium come September. Nevermind that the product on this field is likely to compete 30% of its passes; we have new fancy artificial turf field.
There is a fine line between being avant-garde and a laughingstock. Personally, I don't think the football team is good enough to be doing crap like this. It's just a distraction from the ineptitude of our coach. Maybe it will help recruiting or something, but I just think it is too much.
While we're here, it's great to see the best state flag in the country getting featured in the endzone. I live in Illinois and couldn't pick its state flag out of a police lineup. Maryland's flag is just the most distinctive and most excellently designed state flag ever conceived. However, the Ravens and Orioles need to get the flag emblems off their uniforms and helmets. It clashes with their color schemes and is unnecessary. The Terps are the state's flagship school and the flag belongs to them.
