The college football world thought it was a joke when on April 1, Central Arkansas of Division I-AA announced a plan to install a purple and gray playing surface on First Security Field at Estes Stadium. Well, it wasn't a joke. The Bears have joined the Boise States and Eastern Washingtons of the world with crazy looking turf. The first game on the new field is Sept. 1 against Henderson State.
Video of the new field is below. Thanks to Matt. Click the image to enlarge.
