Unique field markings

    This probably should've gone in the college football thread, but they're in the middle of a raging debate of "SEC vs. The World" over there and I didn't want it to get lost.
    I was watching the Cal-Arizona State game last night and noticed that ASU has little pitchforks, instead of the usual arrows, after the yard markers on its field. Are there any other schools that do things like this with their field markings? I know Georgia has the big "G" logo at the goal line, and LSU has every 5-yard line marked. Any others?

    The pitchforks are the Sun Devils' Trident. I think Grambling may do the same thing as Georgia with its goallines.

    Fresno St. had every 5 marked off.

    Why does LSU and now Fresno State mark every five yards? I've never been a big fan of that.

    Doesn't Florida State have a spear for the arrows on the numbers.

    Don't forget the most popular field markings in college football, though it's in the endzone...

    Penn State uses yellow paint for its goallines.

    Only unique because nobody does it anymore, but I believe Notre Dame has the old-school circle at the 50-yard line.

    Copied by a zillion high school programs, unfortunately, because with the lousy lighting at prep stadiums, it makes it almost impossible to see the goal line from some press boxes (and I'm a radio guy, so I don't exactly have the option of walking the sidelines).

    You could be a sideline reporter, right? ;)

    LSU also has H-shaped, as opposed to Y-shaped, goal posts.
