Not that there's anything wrong with this look...but the new field looks significantly better, if you ask me.

I think the black on the outside makes a huge difference.

I’m really pumped for the Boone Co. schools to get these fields. Conner and Cooper especially... their fields were rough... to put it nicely. Not to mention it helps so many other athletic programs other than football. I am sure the ADs are pumped too because not having to worry about weather is a huge help for scheduling.

That's a great endzone color!

It looks better in that picture. It still looks too dark though. It could be my phone.

It definitely looks lighter in that second picture.

I've seen multiple shades of Boone County blue over the years. I'm guessing depending on how new the uniform or paint was. I would think there will be some fading of the turf due to weathering at some point. Either way, I like the look.

Here...I fiddled around with the eyedropper color selection feature on PowerPoint and compared the original "Boone County Blue" as shown in the cover of the school's first yearbook, to the blue tones in the pictures from the tweet, as well as the blue tone from the picture I posted.

It looks much better here than in the initial post. Will it have writing in the end zone? BOONE in white outlined in black would be a good look on that blue.

Same hue but a different tone? I think they are both the same "color." The old BoCo blue looks like it has some neutral gray added. I remember some old unis that were more "Baby Blue." 😬

I kinda like the new "Electric Rebel Blue."
