I know that some of you were wondering about the condition of the turf last season at Stanford Stadium and how bad it looked, and that caused some admins to consider switching up the turf.
Today, Coach Shaw held a press conference that discussed, among many things (including Skov's secretive punishment), what type of turf Stanford is going to use in Stanford Stadium.
See what Shaw told reporters after the jump:
"We're going to be grass." - on the field in Stanford Stadium this fall. #dshawpc #gostanford— Stanford Football (@StanfordFball) February 23, 2012
So there you have it. Stanford Stadium will be grass next season.
If you live in the area of Palo Alto and happen to stop by Maples/Football Practice field, you'llnotice that the field is divided up into three different turfs: long cut, short cut, and a third type of turf mostly hidden behind blocked fences. It seems the coaches had checked out changing the turf, but ultimately decided on keeping grass.
