REDESIGNING FIELDS: WHY DOES WYOMING GET THE ONLY COOL FIELD?

YOUR FIELD HAS DIED OF DYSENTERY

Wyoming shouldn't be the only ones having fun with field redesign. (All graphics by @LSUFreek)

1. Oregon.

Oregontrailr_medium

The Oregon Trail variation of Autzen's turf harkens back to the historical roots of the school itself, and also confirms your suspicions: that by the third quarter, your team will have died of dysentery well before reaching the promised land by the Pacific.

2. Florida

The eyes of Will Muschamp are upon you, and in a stiff breeze flicker like an animated GIF. (You are correct: they are following you wherever you walk in the stadium.)

3. Tennessee

ALL CHECKERBOARD EVERYTHING. Disorientation may be Tennessee's only hope at this point, really.

4. Texas A&M

The Hate Barn is already bat country, so why not commemorate it by putting them on the field? Not pictured: actual bats encouraged to nest in the endzones and scare opponents into painful, distracting rabies shots.

5. Wisconsin

The foam will be real, and generated by diverting runoff from the stands onto the field.

6. Illinois

This is how Illinois football has seen the endzone for years anyway.

7. West Virginia

The secret: this design was just downloaded from the iPhone background Dana Holgorsen uses on his phone.

8. Michigan

That's the Friday New York Times crossword, plebe.

9. Arkansas

Those are empty beer cans, but from a distance look kind of like discarded prescription pills, and yeah that works, too.

10. Nebraska

You call them dangerous running tractors, and Bo Pelini says they're way safer for players than a single second Ndamukong Suh played on the field for the Cornhuskers.

11. Ole Miss

Olemissmagnolias_medium

Beautiful magnolias reference the magic of the Grove, and also serve as a unique feature for gameplay. (Passes stuck in trees are treated touchbacks.) The blue dot is the tent of the McCann family, who have had that spot since 1982 and have no intentions of moving it. Play around them and the literal hundreds of dollars they contribute to Ole Miss a year, sir.
