That should do a great job of wiping out all the evidence of a recent game.........

Strategic move: leave the field like crap, bench all your starters and key backups. Sacrifice your scrubs vs a team that you will probably face in the first round. Brilliant move!

Doc, the color -or- look of a field has nothing to do with the actual quality of the field itself.. You know that!!

When you end up painting dirt to look like green grass...........you have dirt that looks like grass! And if you don't paint the dead grass to look like grass, you have dead grass that looks like dead grass. If you have live grass next to dead grass next to dirt, then your hamstrings, quads, calves, hips, knees and ankles look black and blue on TV, just before the red cart takes you down the black hole.

Why don't they just give up on trying to grow real grass and put this stuff down...



Just to be clear, I'm suggesting FieldTurf, not AstroTurf

This was asked in another thread and never answered, what happens with this turf during other events? Is another surface laid down on top of it?

I've never seen a thread where people seem to know so little about something and are so opinionated about how to "fix it".

Yes, there is an entire spare field of pallets, if needed.

They are going to replace the field from end line to end line, between the college hash marks. That was decided long ago. Rest easy.

It's not adaptable for other events at Reliant including the Rodeo and monster truck. Won't happen.

Nothing personal, but your comment shows that you are uninformed. What does a retractable roof have to do with anything?

The architects miscalculated the orientation of the stadium and configuration of the stadium (too vertical) when taking into account the necessary angle of sunlight entry with time of sun exposure to the field per day (even during clement weather). The pallet replacement was never meant to there for replacement of poorly growing or naturally dying grass........it was originally meant to be there for pallet replacement of specific areas that were torn up during play (a concept which has introduced its own unique problems).

To #1, I totally agree!

To #2, I've posted this before. The Colts in their Field Turf stadium simply cover their surface when they have any non-sporting events at their facility. Field Turf is permanently seamed and cannot be removed and rolled up. One of the busiest facilities in the world is New Meadowlands Stadium and they have a permanent FieldTurf surface with a cover also for multi-sports and non-sports events. The cost of the "cover" essentially equals the cost of the Field Turf surface.......~ $1 million.

With that said, the field would look better, but the players as a whole definitely prefer natural grass surface when in decent shape.

Obviously, they can't, and the Rodeo is equally as important a tenant.
