    Got a big kick out of this line:

    "It is definitely faster than anything I've ever seen in my 14 years of conditioning," Tiny Gampshone, the junior executive strength and conditioning coach said. "It is really going to prompt muscle confusion in the other team as the brain wants to run on a green surface."

    Junior executive strength and conditioning coach?

    Got this at midafternoon, forwarded to me as if it was serious. I got as far as "Vandalay Industries."

    What makes it work is that if you know lunatic LSU is, you could almost see them actually doing this.

    Someone sent it to me in an e-mail, and until I read the story I admit I wasn't 100 percent sure it was a joke. LSU has whored itself out to Nike and everyone else the last few years, so it's not implausible.

    And it does follow, by a just a few weeks, a real story about Eastern Washington installing red turf.

    LSU with purple turf would be awesome just as Tennessee with Orange Turf would be awesome and Nebraska with red turf would be awesome. I don't think the enthusiasts would like it but it sure would be cool.

    There's a facebook page dedicated to getting James Madison to install purple turf.
