    Can't help but think with all of this facility talk that Folsom Field could get turf...anyone think it will happen sooner than later? I believe I read somewhere that Arizona will have turf next season too.

    It would save a lot of money in the long run.

    I recall seeing photos of CU's new practice turf and it looked very nice. Would be great on TV.

    Would make sense too if we are planning to move to more of a spread offense.

    I love the grass. Having been on the turf multiple times, Folsom is one of the best fields in the nation. That being said, turf looks awesome on TV

    Field turf would help the "Green" rating of Folsom. That's important to the CU community. It will also save money. That's important to the CU community. I think it will happen.

    compromise, half turf and half grass. adds an innovative new element to the game.

    PS
    everyone pro-grass probably just got pissed that bb2 is on their side.

    I need a numbers guy to verify this, but CU's performance went to dogsh*t almost coincidentally with the switch from turf to grass.

    Isn't there a tendency to have more injuries with turf Vs grass? If so, keep the grass.

    Field turf probably makes the most sense.
