    New JTS Lawn

    For those who were cracking on the field at the spring game, have no fear.









    Important - Everybody needs to remember that as much as we like seeing progress at JTC, it is still an active construction site and NOBODY should be going into/onto any part of the construction site without proper authorization. It's very important to remember this as any legal or lawsuit issues could cause serious adverse problems for Iowa State and therefore the athletic programs.

    Nice shots!

    So is that concrete we're looking at or heavily packed dirt?

    All Dirt. They are just doing the grading.

    looks like dirt to me... look at how heavy the paint must have been on in the North Endzone... it 'stained' the dirt.

    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    Re: New JTS Lawn

    What do they do with the old sod? It might not be good for the field but I'd think it would be great in my yard. Or is it really that bad?

    I'm sure it's tilled up somewhere else and left to compost... great fill in soil for somewhere else when needed.
    I would've loved the midfield piece though - put that in my front yard to show all these Tx people some true fanhood!

    I got to thinking - before we went back to grass, what was under the artificial turf?

    Re: New JTS Lawn

    That does just look a little weird. They just need to be sure they turned off the sprinklers or they are going to have an absolute mess on their hands one morning

    That dirt surface is still better than the astroturf of the early 90's.
