Ok, I give in. Grass is safer. Than either put in a grass practice field only for football, hire the guys from Penn Stste or Iowa State where the turf is fantastic or put in field turf. Those living in Yale football from 50 years ago are nostalgic and I get that, but field turf did not exist then. The majority of high school players, D1 college and NFL players play on field turf today. They can’t all be wrong. Turf is faster, and drains better. The mud/sand mix on the current field is dangerous for knees and ankles.

We fix the grass or go to field turf. No one seems to complain that they put in turf for lacrosse, baseball or soccer. I understand the players are much bigger in football, but the current field is not safe. Period.
