That's what they did at the Astrodome, if I remember right. I like the fact that Reliant has grass, but if they can't find a way to keep the grass alive then it's not worth it. I'm sure they will find a way to upgrade or improve eventually.

I've never understood the logic behind "wetting a field to slow the other team down". If you wet the field and it slows the other team, wouldn't it also slow your own players down thus negating the slowing down the other team advantage?

And yeah, bring in the field turf. If astro turf was the only other option, then I'd say keep working with the grass. But there's nothing wrong with field turf (as long as the turf ain't blue...Boise State).

I thought they did have trays that they kept outside (somewhere?) that they rotated with the ones in Reliant?

You know when you look at a picture of BS's field it doesn't look so bad. Sort of unique and kinds of makes a statement.

However when you watch it on TV it tends to play tricks with your eyes (mine anyway) and to me it's hard to see the ball.

Wonder how many fans of their home games go home with migraines?

A little color thought .. a list of colors and the moods they provoke.
I would have to vote for green... .. for a playing field.
And opponents should all have to wear bright yellow ..

*Blue: A relaxing color. Blue lowers blood pressure, calms, gives a sense of security, and suppresses appetite.

*Red: This color raises the blood pressure, stimulates appetite and conversation and is often associated with excitement.

*Orange: This color stimulates the appetite, is friendly, relaxing and ambitious.

*Green: This is the easiest color for the eyes to focus on for long periods of time. It soothes pain and is associated with optimism.

*Bright yellow: This color is an eye irritant and a highly emotional color. After long periods of time, yellow invokes feelings of anger and hostility. However, yellow, in small doses, is a friendly, happy color.

*Black: This is a powerful, mysterious color and is associated with seriousness.

*Pink: This is a youthful, feminine color. Pink is also a soft, sensitive color.

*Purple: This color is often associated with royalty. It is also a contemporary color.

*Brown: This is an organic, earthy color. It is considered to be heavy and unpretentious.

I like a mixture of blue and green, but I can't believe we're talking about this on a football message board, lol.

Just wondering how bad that field is gonna look for the Cleveland game?

More likely will be a cross between a checkerboard and a patchwork quilt, with colors ranging from spray-painted green to brown to various shades of gray.

Jeeeze, it's actually worse than I thought!

I think it's actually more of an embarrassment than how the team played today.

Yeah, the nice slip that Carr had (buying him a sack) was something I could have done without. Right now we've got the best stadium in the NFL with a field that I wouldn't want to see in a high school stadium. I've seen elementary school playgrounds that looked better than the field at Reliant.

Let's not blame the turf. That is a sorry excuse. The Texans were not at their best and nothing would have changed that scenario. Forget turf. Think draft.

Who said that I, or anyone else for that matter, was blaming the Texans losses on the turf? Not I, nor anyone else. I'm just saying that the turf at Reliant Stadium is the subject of negative publicity and embarrassment. And deservedly so.

It should be like the turf/grass at all the rest of the NFL stadiums. A non-issue.

Picture of the turf from my camera phone before the game even started. It was horrible. I mean, when Carr slid out of bounds, it was like a slip n' slide.
Go to the field turf....I can only imagine what it looked like on tv.
