    Field conditions today

    Wanted to give a shout out to the grounds crew at ISU. As I have watched football this afternoon and tonight I am incredibly impressed with the condition of the field at Jack Trice here in November.
    Best looking natural surface in college football.

    Re: Field conditions today

    The field is awesome and do you think we will keep the natural grass or go turf like a lot of other teams are doing?

    If we were going to switch to turf, I would think that we would have done it already.

    Re: Field conditions today

    To go to field turf would be a slap in the face to one of the best Turf Management Programs in the state. LET ME TURFGRASS MANAGER COACH!


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”
