Just a Little More Red Field Talk

Incidentally, I was watching more NCAA FCS playoff action as Eastern Washington University played a semifinal round game on their red home field. Last night's game was presented in a "true" high definition format on ESPN (unlike the standard definition feed that MASN attempted to pull-off as HD on their Hi-Def channel last week) & EWU wore their all-black uniforms (instead of their red pants & jerseys).

The black uniforms popped against the brilliant, bright red playing surface & looked tremendous on television. I think we'll definitely see more of this from teams in the coming years as the recent practice is far too marketable to outlaw...

Btw, EWU defeated Villanova 40-31 to advance to the FCS Championship where they will play the winner of the Deleware State/Georgia Southern game IN TEXAS & NOT on their red field :-(
