The 2020 college football offseason slump — and, really, the sports world in general — has officially arrived.

NFL free agency has been entertaining us for a while, and hopefully the draft will be later this month, but right now, pretty much nothing is happening.

What we can do is subjectively classify things. Few sports, if any, are better for this than college football.

What are the ugliest fields in college football? There is a lot. We have collected photos of the first eight. Some you should have no problem with; others, we’ll see.

Here are the eight ugliest fields in the country.

Maryland’s flag is one of the coolest in the country, and the Terrapins have always had cool basketball uniforms, but the color combination looks weird on the gridiron.

The classic Smurf land. It’s too much.

East Washington

College football fields are supposed to be green.

Coastal Carolina

Not this color of green, however.

Eastern Michigan

Watching Eastern Michigan games on TV feels like watching a game in black and white. It’s cool at first but eventually you’ll get bored of it.

Notre Dame Stadium is a legendary venue, but classic end zones just aren’t perfect on a grass pitch. The Fighting Irish are expected to play on natural grass.

Central Arkansas

It doesn’t get any worse than that.

University of New Haven

Boise State did better on the blue field. And it doesn’t look good there either.
