    While were waiting on assistant announcements, does anyone have any updates on the field? Any progress during the holidays? Thanks!

    I was at Paulson last Saturday for the press conference. Very little grass has been taken up. Very little.

Once two different breeds of the turf are introduced, over time they mix together and form a sort of hybrid Bermuda, which is where the discoloration comes from. Paulson stadium, and Statesboro in general, is the lords gift to earth for growing Bermuda. Sandy soils, high temps, and water is basically all that stuff needs and it will just about grow on asphalt. If the field were to be re sodded entirely with sod from a reputable sod farm and cared for properly, we could have the best natural turf field in the country.

    I know the debate over injuries on fake turf vs real turf is ongoing, but I just have to believe that if fake turf was the way to go, wouldn't all the major sec universities be installing it??? They certainly have the capitol to do so. Not to mention how hot it is during the Statesboro summer, I've got to believe that the fake turf will get blistering hot after soaking up 100+ degree beaming sun all day.

    I just generally think the fake turf is a mistake.

    I agree.

    Fake turf is stupid.

    Agreed.

    I doubt we will see another now that Fritz has taken that particular brand of dumbassery to Tulane.
