That policy goes into effect next year, 2013.
Turf for non-NFL events coming to Reliant Stadium
The article mentions that it would be used this year, but I heard on the radio today that they will start using it next year. I do not know the reason(s) for the delay.

I don't know if they use the same type of surface for highschool and college games, but my brother and two brother in laws have played in reliant multiple times. None if them complained about the field.
Maybe they give high school and college players the good stuff.
yep, my son said the same thing. He said the players love playing at Reliant, both for the atmosphere and because the field is great.
