    I think alternating red and gold every ten yards would be awesome.

    The only way we go for a Red/Gold field is if we genetically engineer grass to grow that way. Then I'm all for it!

    Becker Underwood, an Ames company has been a leader in turf die over the years - they've done superbowls, etc.

    This. I love having a grass field! So many teams are now switching to turf so it makes it more special to still have grass.

    How about not on ANY kind of artificial turf. Especially since we have one of the best turf management schools in the country.
