On Saturday night, Good Bull Hunting made what we thought to be a pretty obvious troll showing maroon turf being installed at Kyle Field. But many people ran with the idea, to the extent that Sports Illustrated's Extra Mustard blog felt it necessary to debunk the rumor.
I'd be lying if I said we didn't enjoy it immensely.
But now that the cat is out of the bag, let's enjoy some of the best reactions from across social media. Some of these reactions are also jokes, not that we can tell the difference any more.
If the rumors of the new maroon turf at Kyle Field are true, A&M will never be taken seriously ever. Some things never change I guess!— Trevor Cook (@TSC_HookEm) July 27, 2014
