First off, there’s the usual commemorative logo to mark an anniversary game, and this is the logo that will be painted at the 50-yard-line at the Georgia Dome this Saturday.
Then there are the endzones. For years, the endzones have basically been an afterthought and they just went with a generic font in the endzone that was painted in team colors with the school’s name.
Both endzones will be fully splashed out with color, which is a a welcome sight for a big game such as this. Personally, I’m always a fan of big, flashy endzone design for championship games (I’m actually a fan of big, flashy endzone designs, period). If you’ve made it far enough in the season to play in a huge game with big implications, then you may as well dress the field up for the occasion, right? So, I’m definitely a fan of this move by the SEC and the Georgia Dome’s field crew.
Meanwhile, the same crew is probably going to have a long weekend ahead of them — they’ve also got to get the field ready for a 1:00 PM ET Atlanta Falcons home game on the very next day. I hope that they’re loading up on coffee.
