Three Things We Learned Today About Central Arkansas' New Striped Field

1. It’s not a joke. We held off on this tidbit last Friday thanks to an editorial stance that could charitably be described as “really, REALLY don’t want to get skewered by a I-AA athletic department on April 1,” but the report released by Central Arkansas on the school’s plans to lay down purple-and-gray striped turf at their football stadium, upping the eye-buggery ante established at Eastern Washington, appears to be all too real.

2. If you want to see the Bears play on this thing on television,you’ll probably have to venture to Conway yourselves: The biggest non-conference games, against Louisiana Tech and Arkansas State, are both road dates.

3. UCA’s head coach is named Clint Conque. Clint Conque! We like him already.
