Big change at the Big House, indeed. For the first time in Michigan football history, the end zones won't be green.

The University of Michigan is replacing it's turf this summer, and part of the change is the end zones will be solid blue. "Michigan" will still be spelled out in maize colored letters, according to the Detroit News.
This the biggest change is Michigan football history since the school moved from real grass to artificial turf in 1968, and then back to grass in 1991 and then to Field Turf in 2003.
A Detroit Free-Press story says the reaction on Twitter has been somewhat mixed, but even a Buckeye fan liked it. Of course, it doesn't matter what people think of the look, as long as Michigan wins the Big Ten title and doesn't get embarrassed in a bowl game.
