Horrible, horrible idea. The turf at AZ has been considerd by many 'experts' to be one of the top real grass surfaces in the country for decades...now this...bad call by Byrne IMO. Do you know how hot field turf can get? Like 60 degrees hotter than grass in 90 degree air temp days...does not make sense in an area where the natural turf can be grown so easily.
You bring in Rich Rod and it's intelligent of Byrne to give him everything he needs to be successful. Byrne has done a good job of that bringing in Casteel and now putting in the turf that allows Rodriguez to play his preference of ball: Fast.
Amazingly ARIZONA is showing more commitment to football then Michigan did just 4 years ago when they brought in RichRod under much more hype. Think about that for a second.
Good for Byrne and Wildcat football. Just don't f with the golden goose (basketball)
