    The AD sent out an email a few minutes ago saying the grass lots will be closed, but I don't see any announcements elsewhere about it

    Ours was sent to Sukup ticket holders. Maybe they're using different lists:

    Does anybody know if they'd let you "tailgate" at any of the public lots on campus? Anyone done it before?

    I love how usually a forecast can ebb and flow throughout a week but 10/5 has been stuck on rainy all week, and it's between two decent forecasts on either side.

    I've parked at the Agriculture Student Learning Center for both Iowa and ULM, it's an easy walk and you can tailgate in the lot.

    Some of my fondest memories of G7 were sitting in our truck and watching people drive to drive out of the mud pit.

    Maybe it's the farm kid in me, but most people don't know how to drive in the snow or mud. :confused:

    Spinning your wheels = bad.;)

    Can this season have worse FB weather?

    Iowa game -- horrid
    Louisiana-Monroe --- horrid
    Baylor --- stifling oppressive dangerous heat

    Ames forecast next 6 days? ?

    ~ Friday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday -- SUNNY
    ~ Saturday? 90% chance of rain

    I loved the grass field for 20 years. I have done a 180 degree turn. Get field turf please

    The first half of Lousiana Monroe wasn't bad at all.

    If the field does get a good amount of rain Saturday I can only imagine what condition it will be in afterwards. I guess one good thing is they would have 3 weeks before the next home game to try and get it back into decent condition.

    I mean it wasn’t awful compared to what they were predicting. But it was depressingly dark and damp.

    99% chance of this being a dumb question but...is that enough time to tear it up and put a new one down?

    Yeah you could if you want to spend the $$$. Don't believe it would be cheap though. NFL teams redo their sod if needed quite a bit. Especially down the middle of the field.

    It's already in pretty bad shape. CW was talking about it on KXNO last night when they had John Walters on.

    It can be tricky though. Sometimes replacing mid year makes it worse especially with more rain. Hard rock stadium in Miami has done it and one year the NFL almost moved the game due to how poor the field was.
