My understanding is that the safety debate is still ongoing regarding good grass v. good turf.

I'm sure good grass is safer than bad turf, and that the converse is equally true is well.

But neither has a lock on safety. Dartmouth lost a potential starter to a knee injury (presumably) on the turf this past spring.

My further understanding is that coaches prefer turf because of the predictability. Game plans tend to go out the window when you're playing on a muddy grass field in the rain.

Dartmouth does practice tackling, just against pads and the robotic MVP. Dartmouth's Defense over the last few years has been exceptional, and Buddy gives credit to practicing form tackling more than ever before. I know that the group is fresh and healthy on Saturdays because they're not beating up on each other during the week. But another thing that I've heard players talk about is that they are hungry to hit somebody (anybody)and you can notice how they fly to the ball and swarm to gang tackle.
