It's Hybrid Bermudagrass, the same thing they will be replacing it with. What in the world has the weather done that would cause the need to replace the grass. The growing medium is a sand based soil, so you would not think the rainfall amounts we have had would cause a problem. We have had a lot of Army worms around the upstate this year, but on Bermudagrass they only eat the blades, not the roots. Strange.

Makes sense. There has not been a real effective product for nematodes since the EPA banned it about six or eight years ago. There are a few products that will help prevent them but other than that you just remove the grass and let the sunlight kill them. On a golf course you would not have to do that but on a football field during the season that is probably the best remedy. There should be enough warm weather remaining for the new sod to root and be playable in a few weeks.

The quarterbacks better be ready to go under center. Also, kick the dang field goal.

With the high crown in the old days, if you stood on one sideline and looked at someone standing on the other sideline across the field, you couldn't see below their waste.

It was surprisingly high - you couldn't really tell unless

Unless they use a special sod (super thick in depth) the field is going to be an issue. The forecast is for cooler weather and warm seasons grasses will stop growing, let alone taking root. What a mess.

We have had trouble with the grass in Death Valley off and on for years.
Maybe that's the problem with the offense.

Why did they tear out the entire playing field? The middle of the field was brand new and had no wear to it.

How many fields have real grass in the endzones......and fake grass for the rest of the field???

Crump, we need better reporting on this. I am not convinced they are resodding the field. That just wouldn’t make sense. Looks like to me they are top dressing the field. That makes more sense. Get on it Crump and give us the straight scoop.
