We can go back and forth. I appreciate the support over the last 50 years. You are entitled to your opinion, as I am to mine Let's agree to disagree. With that said, the players despise the grass/ mud/ sand. Its been this way over the last several years I personally know this.

We can't stop practicing on the grass leading up tp home games, or we forfeit our advantage to acclimate to the atrocious conditions and timing.

You won't hear from me again on this matter. Debating with you is getting nowhere.

I've been watching Yale Football for over 40 years and I also prefer grass to Field Turf; with one caveat: the field must never be allowed to degenerate into the condition we saw last season. Not only was it an embarrassment reflected on national TV, it was also unsafe for the players.

If there is a will to adequately maintain a grass field it can easily be done. I question the will.

It's been established that areas of heaviest use would benefit from artificial surface.

So, install turf in the visitor's men's rooms before Harvard weekend.

Several problems solved.
