If you google images of "red end zones football" .. almost all use white lettering. That is my own preference.
Like I said. Don't have a creative bone in my body.
you nailed the red end zones ... so you bagged your quota of good creative ideas for the whole year then ???

Re: Turf Updates

Interesting too, the "saved" Reggie at mid-field appears gone too. Wonder what that was all about? It would make a unique gift to an anchor donor. I love the endzones. Trying to picture whether white or black lettering would look better. Black, right? Gray? If you google images of "red end zones fo...

Re: Turf Updates

Niceee .... looks like we got the alternating shades of green with Red End Zones !!!

p.s. as for the old turf Reggie cut-out pic we saw .. I am betting that ends up somewhere .. maybe somehow in large banquet hall ? And that it gets a refurbished paint job.

The cameras need to be on the west side. The sun isn't a problem then.
This and the view of newly renovated east side is much better.

But you're still getting my double birds .. just cause I can't resist myself ... :dance:

People who really want an upside down Reggie on ESPN feeds, just so they can look at it from their seats amaze me.
you probably haven;t followed close enough .. but most of us, me for sure, are just having fun with the play on words. .. flip the bird. Been a really long offseason !!!

Re: Uniforms

A word on helmets. I love sharp helmets. I just bought 10 speedflex for my old high school. With a discount from my Riddell guy that I've know for 20 years it was $380 each. to outfit a college team with a second helmet you're looking at $40,000. Chump change for Oregon. A bite in the budget for us...

I generally have a very negative view of flipping the bird, but in this case I'm indifferent.

Re: Uniforms

no idea .. but I hope the next uniform investment is some really sharp looking helmets. Petty or not .. it would help with recruitment and look really sharp on TV.

Re: Travel to Fort Collins, CO

Make sure you go to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park while you are there. go up Big Thompson Canyon to get there. Look for the Hotel that inspired "The Shining". "The Stanley Hotel" Was there in 2015. awesome place. We had Moose walk right past us in the grass in front of the hotel. very...

Re: Turf Updates

I would be stunned (and appalled) if field was anything but green. I'm betting no MVFC logo ... simply because it would infer no FBS move for 10 year life of turf. Weak argument, but I'm thinking they won't do it for this reason. I'm really hoping for the red end zone .. but keep everything else sim...

Re: Turf Updates

I'm guessing the Reggie Head was still on field when that field demolition pic was taken, only to ensure it didn't get thrown out with rest of turf. Betting they will preserve it and put it on display somewhere for people to see ... maybe in banquet hall somehow.

Re: Galen Scott

I prefaced it and conditioned it .... I think we've all seen stuff like like this handled far worse .. like I said, I am simply giving him props for admitting his mistake and recognizing he has to focus on fixing things at home .. and I qualified it by saying, "if he is genuine".

Re: James Graham

good for James. Hope this get him good long look. Not sure what position he is built for at next level .. but impressive that a 2nd stinger got a couple camp invites. He is explosive edge rusher, but not really NFL size. Best wishes .. way to represent !!!

Re: Dalton Keene!!!

I have to say, I'm so glad he is getting a shot as UFA. He's a tweener at next level, partly because he became the stud DT that ISU asked him to be. He could have added less weight and worked on his game at DE and done just as well. But ISU likes athletic DTs .. so he put on the weight and converted...

Re: Galen Scott

Not condoning what he did at all, but at least he is stepping up to issue like a man. Admitted to what he did and is trying to make it right with his family first. If he is genuine, you have to give him props for manning up.
