While it has been confirmed that Byrd Stadium, the University of Maryland's football stadium, will be fitted with synthetic turf to replace the grass it has had since 1950, a new report from WUSA9 is suggesting that the turf will be a color other than the conventional, pseudo-natural green.
According to Omar Mohammed: "A source within the program told me that the turf being applied to the field will be either black or pewter." A dark-colored field would match up with this computer-generated image of the new Byrd Field turf that has been making its way around the Internet.
The laying of a black-or-pewter field has yet to be confirmed, and it has not been reported anywhere else as of now.
