Default Reliant Turf and Meineke Car Care Bowl

I hope Uncle Bob has a couple of dozen spare pallets of turf out in the Parking Lot and enough grounds crew on duty to replace any turf damaged today in this stupid Bowl Game.

It would really suck for Andre or someone to get injured tomorrow because of bad turf and miss the Playoffs.

Yeah, maybe its just my new LED HDTV flat screen I got for Christmas, but the field looks like crap.

I hope the whole thing is replaced by tomorrow.

We've been discussing this in the Bowl Game thread.

JJ Watt happened to post a pic on Twitter. I put it up in the above mentioned thread.

They need to rethink the turf or at the very least, the fall and winter maintenance.

Read on twitter yesterday that the middle of the field is going to replaced for tomorrow's game. Still pretty ridiculous that the whole thing can't be replaced. I hope this gets fixed next season.

Every year we say this and nothing changes and I can't figure out why that is. It's not like players haven't been hurt on this field already (Welker comes to mind) and we all saw Cushing do that weird twist a few weeks ago. How many people were holding their breath when he went down?

How about our great rookie punter messing up his leg just running down the field?

They just confirmed on ESPN it would be changed out. They actually showed the forklift drivers putting the pallets together before the game. And then showed the few dozen pallets of fresh grass out in the parking lot.

I hope it gets fixed tomorrow. This is the kind of stuff sports writers in town need to address. It could be holding the team back.

Just saw one of the NW cheerleaders limp out of the end zone after doing some flips. Looked like it could be turf related as her landing was fine.

That field does not look good....maybe they are holding the better conditioned field for tommorrow.....
Some of the players from both sides were slipping on the field......not sure why.....

Maybe they need to do some research into the field and the condition it is kept in......

I was thinking maybe they need to invest in a big greenhouse....or something like that to house the grass they use for games.......

They won't replace the whole field for tomorrow. Even if they did, from what I hear, the new grass has not been growing up to par in Pearland because of the screwy weather conditions this year.


Funny short piece I found:

Reliant roof closed for Meineke Bowl
By Tina Akouris on December 31, 2011 9:46 AM

The roof at Reliant Stadium in Houston is closed for the Meineke Car Care Bowl. Even though Saturday morning's heavy fog lifted about 90 minutes before game time, an official said the roof is closed because the grass field needs to be protected for Sunday's Texans-Titans game and too many shadows may affect the ESPN telecast.

Just got back from the game, yeah some pieces of the field look like crap. Saw divots being kicked up just from the aggies warming up. First time I've got to go to Reliant, such an awesome stadium, why oh why do they use such a broken system for the field

At least after 6 bowl games I finally got to see the aggies win. Sorry for the field.

I was at the game and I totally agree, it looked like crap. BUT, it looked like it was the last field we played on because you could see where they painted over the Texan logo. There's NO freaking way they're leaving that field for tomorrow! Kubiak would have a stoke!!
