    JTS Turf

    Silly question, but I recall there were a lot of complaints about the performance of the JTS turf for the Iowa game.

    How was it for Baylor and how is it expected to hold up these next two weekends?

    I don't know but can we paint HARRISON in one endzone and BARNES in the other?

    Re: JTS Turf

    Who was complaining?

    Didn't we just replace it a year or two ago?

    Maybe complaint is too strong a word, but I recall a lot of concerns about the turf coming up in too big of divots and it not appearing to have a strong root system.

    I did not make the Baylor game, so don't know if the chunks happened again, or all is well.

    My point exactly... thank you.

    CycloneWarning - I wasn't at the iowa game, didn't notice on tv. I was at the Baylor game and didn't really notice chunks flying or an inordinate number of odd slips or falls. But I wasn't paying particular attention for such things.

    Re: JTS Turf

    Our field is usually one of the best in the conference. It seems highly unlikely that are field is/was in bad shape.

    Re: JTS Turf

    There was one big chunk that came up early in the Iowa game, but other than that I haven't seen any problem at the Army or Baylor games. As far as switching to field turf, I hope we don't, I've always prefered the natural grass field.
