It’s obvious by now that the University of Maryland’s football program is undergoing a crazy transformation.
Well, it’s actual football product is still sub par (2-10 record in 2011), but it’s aesthetics are very bold.

And now the school is thinking of turning the natural grass at Byrd Stadium into black or pewter artificial turf, according to WUSA 9 (via SB Nation).
