    I was at the WV and KState game. Both times the field appeared slippery. I'm curious if it's time for artificial turf? Thoughts?

    No.

    Bad fall with way too much rain. Also the night games make it worse.

    Iowa State has an incredible grass field. It should remain that way.

    The grass is dormant. Not sure what people expect.

    Aren't they finding that artificial turf may be more risky for injury?

    Also, our field turf management crew does an amazing job given the conditions they work with. Follow them on Twitter (twitter.com/cycloneturf) to see what it takes to prep the field every week and post-game.

    If you want to see **** field conditions, watch a game at Northwestern.

    Check out Pitt. They play at the Steelers stadium. It's absolutely horrible.

    No kidding, this fall sucked. I had frozen turf here several weeks ago. Had to pound a metal rod through the frozen ground in order to get fiberglass reflector poles to mark the curbline for the plows.

    While watching with some guys at a gamewatch I was talking about the turf. Seemed, cause **** weather, that some guys cutting a couple weeks ago were taking out divots, didn't notice that last night. Also reminisced about the Nov. 12th Colorado tornado game, the one with the tornado. Warm and humid as hell that day, same time of year.

    It is late November what do we expect? The problem is maybe players should change to deeper cleats and u won’t slip around.

    Artificial turf hell no....Now Artificial grass is something some teams are doing now. But Turf is dumb...

    I remember the days when JTS had artificial turf. Blown out knees were a regular occurrence.
