    Re: Yale Bowl going to field-turf.....

    The Baltimore ravens had that mixed artificial/natural grass stuff for a season or two. By the end of the first season, with HS games played on thanksgiving, and a couple of weeks later, then a playoff run, the plastic was completely separating from the natural grass. They had to go through in the off season and cut large chunks of it out. After that, they got the fake stuff.

    USM has field turf, so does D2 Mississippi College and Delta State, and so does NAIA Millsaps

    Not true in basketball. Yale will play in the NCAA hoops tournament.

    Really? What about the kids? The BB team must be a lot smarter than you FB players to be allowed to miss class.

    Yale has a shot. LSU has crapped the bed a few times this year.

    My son that lives in CT works for a construction company. He called to tell me that his company got the contract to haul away the old turf in the bowl. He said they are getting requests from alums who want a piece of the turf as a souvinier. He wanted to know if I wanted a small piece.

    You should advertise your turf in the NH Register. You may get a good offer.
