The University of Lindenwood-Belleville's New Football Field Is ... Unique

But the school didn't go with general issue green. Oh, no. Feast your eyes on this:
Full disclosure here: I'm tint blind, so I'm taking LU-Belleville's word for it when the athletics department says that the field is "maroon and gray." To me, that looks more bright red than maroon, but whatever. I think I like it, but I also think staring at it for the duration of a 60-minute game might make my head hurt.
Is that the worst field you've ever seen, or is it kinda snazzy?
The University of Lindenwood-Belleville will field its first football team this September in what was formerly Belleville's Township Stadium. To prepare for its first foray into NAIA football, the school completely refurbished the stadium, from the seating to the pressbox, and all the way down to replacing the grass with high-tech EnviroTurf.
