So on the why home today I was listening to the local ESPN station and they were talking to their Bears beat reporter, he was on the field. They asked the condition of the field. He said it was excellent. And then they went on to say that they would be putting new sod down before the regular season starts. My questions is why? I understand that Soldier field gets considerably more use than Jack Trice, but pretty sure ISU never puts new sod down, or if they do they would do it early in the spring. I don't understand the city and the Bears thinking on this. Why they won't just go field turf, I don't understand, or higher someone that can actually take care of field. Oh and i just happened to turn the game on to watch a Jacksonville's running back slip down.
