Like I mentioned before, I don't think this is a good idea but EWU officials seem dead set on moving forward with this project. I am all for replacing the natural surface in Cheney that sees its field torn up by year's end but seeing a full field of red is going to be tough to watch especially considering EWU wears full red uniforms and pants (at least as of today).
The blue turf of former Big Sky member Boise State is one thing, which is at least close to the normal color of grass.
I really have no issues of either city gaining the D-I title game for the future. But for fun, I took a look at all the D-I and D-II (looked at both as a number of the D-II teams that played in the D-II title games now are members of FCS) title games played in the state of Texas and compared the attendence of those games vs. those in Chatty.

All the fights seen on the football field pale in comparison to those seen by Jimmy Wilson. Wilson was a key member on the semi-final team at Montana in the 2006 season. That following offseason saw him charged with manslaughter.

Here is a great article from Roman Stubbs of the Montana Kaimin
Something I overlooked over the past month was that PGE Park in Portland, OR will be going through some major renovations as the city is looking to get a Major League Soccer team in 2011.

The renovations are to bring the stadium up to date in terms of seating areas (which before was made for baseball), as well as many other updates. See the link below for the updates to the stadium.
I just saw this article about a team I cover in Eastern Washington. Former All-American and current NFL starter Michael Roos is donating $1/2 million for a new artificial turf in Cheney for the Eagles.
This sounds great as I know this stadium can get its natural grass surface torn up in the late fall. The only thing I am questioning is the color of RED.
Another West school in former Big Sky member Boise State has the blue turf and gets all sorts of attention
